Ashanti is rejoicing now that her three-year stalking nightmare has come to an end.
Devar Hurd has been found guilty of stalking the 35-year-old R&B singer, born Ashanti Douglas, in the 2nd degree, the Manhattan District Attorney confirms to ET. Hurd, 37, was convicted by a jury and his sentencing is scheduled for March 31.
"First and foremost thank you God," Ashanti tweeted afterward. "And thank you guys for all of your love, support and prayers! Verdict is in. #Guilty"
First & Foremost thank you God!!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 & Thanku guys for all of your love, support & Prayers!!!! Verdict is in. #Guilty
This is the third time the case has been brought to trial, as the first attempt was declared a mistrial in 2014 when a juror grew ill. During his subsequent trial, Hurd was convicted on several counts, but the jury could not reach a verdict on the stalking charge.
Hurd, who acted as his own attorney, cross-examined Ashanti for the third time on Wednesday, when she told him, "I just wish you to stop," according to the New York Daily News.
"You continuously tweeted over and over again disgusting, derogatory, disrespectful things to me after you had already gone to jail for doing the same thing," she reportedly said on the stand. "I wish you to stop. I just wish you to stop."
"Ya’ll twisted and two-faced," Hurd, who has been in jail since his 2013 arrest, replied. "This will never happen again, believe that!"
