Shawn Johnson stalker gets 5 years in mental hospital

LOS ANGELES (KWWL) -- The man convicted of stalking Olympic gold medalist, Shawn Johnson, will spend five years in a California mental hospital.

Robert O'Ryan was found to be legally insane when he drove from Florida to Los Angeles and then broke onto the lot of "Dancing With the Stars" last year where Johnson was performing.

The judge gave the order Tuesday after O'Ryan's doctors evaluated him.

During his trial, O'Ryan was described by a prosecutor as harboring a dangerous obsession for Johnson.

After his arrest, police found two loaded guns, a knife and love notes addressed to Johnson in O'Ryan's car.
