Claire Foy stalker gets suspended sentence and will return to the US

The stalker “delusional” that made actress Claire Foy “fear” has been given a suspended sentence and will be repatriated to the US.

ason Penrose, 49, was sentenced to one year and 10 months on probation, two years on probation, at the Old Bailey on Friday.

In November, he pleaded guilty to spying on Foy, who played the Young Queen in the first two series of Netflix hit show The Crown, from August 2021 to February 2022.

He also admitted two charges of violating a temporary ban on tracking by sending a letter and a parcel to the Golden Globe winner.

Penrose received a tracking protection order in July after sending the actress, 38, thousands of emails and arriving at her doorstep.

On Friday, Judge David Aaronberg KC said he was still “worried” that Penrose, a paranoid schizophrenic, “could continue to be infatuated with Miss Foy”, despite having been repeatedly informed that she did not want to contact him.

Conditions for the suspension included that he was under the care of a psychologist in the UK until repatriation and that he fully cooperated with his return to the US.

The court said he would return to Florida to live with his mother and receive additional psychiatric care.

If he returns to the UK while on probation, he must notify the Metropolitan Police of his arrival, letting them know where he intends to stay and for how long.

Judge Aaronberg also imposed an injunction prohibiting him from directly or indirectly contacting or attempting to contact Ms. Foy, and from sending any letters, gifts, parcels or packages to her.

Penrose is also barred from entering the London boroughs of Camden and Islington, with the exception of obtaining his US passport.

He is prohibited from entering within 100 meters of any premises where he knows or has reason to believe that Ms. Foy may be present.

The judge said Ms Foy had “become frightened and suspicious of the post she didn’t recognize and her front doorbell rang” following the stalking.

He added: “She told police she was afraid to leave her property in case you could track her down.”

Citing a statement from the actress, he said: “I feel like the freedoms I enjoyed before Mr. Penrose contacted me are now gone.

“I see the world in a much scarier way.”

The court heard that Home Office records show Penrose applied for permission to enter the UK in October 2021 but was denied entry.

The judge said there was no record of him being allowed “lawful entry into the UK” and that he was likely to be deported if he did not voluntarily agree to return to the US.

After the sentencing, Varinder Hayre, district prosecutor for CPS London North, said: “Stalking is a devastating crime that can destroy the lives of victims.

“Victims often feel as if their lives have been compromised, which can leave a huge mark that can last a lifetime.

“No one should feel unsafe in their home or in their life.

“We take stalking cases extremely seriously and will always strive to prosecute this type of violation whenever the legal test is met.” Claire Foy stalker gets suspended sentence and will return to the US
