Stalking Hall of Shame

Joni Leigh Penn sent at least a hundred letters to Cangney and Lacey's Sharon Gless over two years in the late '80s, including some with pictures of a gun. After the actress testified before the state legislature to encourage laws to make some records less accessible, the obsessed fan showed up at an unoccupied house owned by the actress. She had a rifle and held off police for seven hours before her surrender. She was sentenced to six years in prison.
