NEW YORK (AP) – A fan of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” has been convicted in New York on one of two counts charging him with stalking star Kathryn Erbe.

Jurors deliberated less than a day before reaching the split verdict Friday against Charles Nagel in federal court in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors say the 36-year-old Philadelphia man began stalking Erbe in 2008 by trying to hug her while she was filming on location in Manhattan.

Authorities say once he was rebuffed, he began composing creepy missives about her on a social network.

The 44-year-old Erbe testified that she was scared because she thought Nagel was obsessed with her.

Nagel took the stand to say it was all a misunderstanding.
