Taylor Swift can sleep more easily tonight. A judge sentenced one of her stalkers to 30 months in federal prison.

Eric Swarbrick pleaded guilty to “interstate stalking, and sending interstate communications with the intent to threaten.” His obsession heightened over the years. His note-writing became more frequent and frightening. Among the 40 letters Eric mailed, he threatened to rape and murder Taylor.

The FBI kept a close eye on Swarbrick after Taylor got a restraining order. Three times he drove 900 miles from Austin, Texas to Nashville and delivered letters to the Big Machine Records CEO. Eric threatened suicide if he was not introduced to Taylor.

Following Swarbrick’s arrest wandering the Big Machine hallways, U.S. Attorney Don Cochran said, (quote) “The attention given to this matter and the federal charges we have brought should serve to prevent a future tragic event.” (Forbes)
