NEW YORK – ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent‘ star Kathryn Erbe says she’s relieved by the guilty verdict against a man accused of stalking her.

In a statement Monday, the actress called the New York case “one of the most difficult experiences” of her life.

A Brooklyn jury convicted Charles Nagel on Friday. It heard emotional testimony from Erbe, who played a detective on the USA Network series.

The 44-year-old actress told jurors she got “a very bad feeling” when Nagel tried to hug her on location in 2008. Prosecutors say he later used a social network site to post rude messages and photos of her family.

The 36-year-old Nagel testified that he was a harmless, “star-struck” fan. He faces up to five years in prison.
