Washington, Nov 21 : Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner has been granted permanent restraining order against her alleged stalker, ordering him to stay away from her family for the next three years.
The 'Alias' star was granted a temporary restraining order against Steven Burky earlier this month on Nov 7 by the Los Angeles Superior Court.
Under the permanent order, Burky must also stay 100 yards (300 feet/91 metres) from the actress, husband Ben Affleck, their daughter Violet, the couple's nanny, housekeeper and others, reports Contactmusic.
In the court papers seeking permanent restraining order, the 36-year-old actress said, "Mr Burky has been stalking and harassing me," sending "packages and letters containing delusional and paranoid thoughts and following me around the country... his obsessive and harassing behaviour has escalated to the point of becoming dangerous and threatening".
Burky has been stalking the 'Alias' star, since 2002 when he posed as a college student and then a punk rocker to meet her at a college in Ohio and record store in Los Angeles.
He used to send her creepy love letters, knocked on the door of her L.A. home and travelled to her film sets.
