Although singer Gary Allan and his alleged stalker, Katherine Walker, sat only a few feet apart in a Gallatin, Tenn., courtroom Wednesday morning (May 27), they never got to face each other in front of a judge.
Police in the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville, Tenn., arrested Walker May 4 and charged her with burglarizing and vandalizing Allan’s home as well as stalking him.
In court, Walker asked General Sessions Judge James Hunter to appoint an attorney to represent her. After that was done, she agreed to forego a preliminary hearing and have her case bound over to a grand jury to determine if she will be indicted for the offenses.
The judge ordered Walker not to make any contact with Allan, his family or his property and warned her that any violation of the order will land her in jail.
None of the evidence Allan’s lawyer, Bill Ramsey, compiled against Walker was presented during the hearing, but samples of it were handed out afterward to the media. It included copies of menacing messages Walker allegedly posted on MySpace and a DVD of a surveillance tape showing a figure who looks like Walker vandalizing Allan’s property.
Following the hearing, Ramsey told reporters that Allan has also filed a civil suit against Walker to buttress the criminal charges.
“He just wants [the stalking] to be over,” Ramsey said.
