Frank Andrew Hoover, the man who stalked Taylor Swift and threatened to kill her family, has been sentenced to 10 years of probation with several terms attached.
According to TMZ, after pleading guilty to repeatedly violating his order, the court sentenced Hoover to 10 years of probation with several strings attached. His whereabouts will be tracked with a GPS for at least the first year.
Additionally, Hoover has to undergo random drug testing and attend substance abuse classes. He has to complete psychological testing and surrender all firearms. He also has to follow a restraining order. He has to stay a mile away from the "Bad Blood" singer and her family.
In any case, that Hoover again violates the terms that accompany his probation, there is a big possibility that he could end up in jail.
Hoover grabbed media attention after Swift filed a restraining order against him in 2016. She alleged that he stalked her after her concert at a Formula 1 race in October. He got arrested for violating the restraining order in November after he showed up at her concert in Austin, Texas.
Aside from the stalking, Hoover allegedly also sent threatening emails to the singer's father Scott. Court documents revealed that he had sent continuous emails to him between May 2015 and October 2016. In January 2018, the man was slapped with new charges after prosecutors discovered the emails contained threatening messages about his intent to wipe out the Swifts.
In the messages, Hoover called the pop star and her family the "evil family of devils." He mentioned each of the Swift family member's names including her brother, Austin and mother, Andrea.
"Sincerely, the end real son of god," Hoover said. In the 122-page indictment, he also wrote one terrifying message about murdering the family.
"Decided that we are going to end all the Swifts on one day because I can't stand that virus shit your daughter spread," reads Hoover's message to Scott. He allegedly also told the matriarch of the Swift family to "enjoy the brain aneurysms and death."
"This article is not a joke and is why god is going to burn them into the desert for me. Go to hell, Swift," reads some of the other contents of Hoover's email.
Swift has never publicly commented about her stalker and preferred to keep law enforcement handle Hoover's case.
