A man convicted of stalking Uma Thurman wants to work out a plea deal with prosecutors over new charges after a New York judge refused to throw out the case.
Jack Jordan, who was previously punished for stalking the Kill Bill actress in 2008, is facing fresh allegations he violated a restraining order by calling Thurman’s cell and Manhattan office phone in October. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal contempt.

His lawyer Sam Roberts filed a motion in Manhattan State Supreme Court asking Justice Gregory Carro to either dismiss the case or reduce the charges, but the request was denied on Wednesday.

Justice Carro ruled there was enough evidence to support the new accusations against 39-year-old Jordan, stating he “finds no basis for dismissal”.

During the court hearing, Roberts revealed he was in discussions with prosecutors about a plea deal for his client, although an agreement had yet to be reached.

Jordan, who is being held on $500,000 bond, faces up to four years behind bars if convicted.

He is due back in court on 30 March.
