Kendall Jenner Cops Say Alleged Stalker Can't Be Confined for Long

Kendall Jenner‘s alleged stalker is making his way through the criminal justice system, but the problem is … even if he gets the book thrown at him, he could be out within days.
Law enforcement sources tell us, it doesn’t really matter 37-year-old John Ford has repeatedly trespassed on Kendall’s property in her gated community … he’s only charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass and the max he can get is 6 months in jail — but, because of overcrowding, L.A. County Jail is a revolving door, and he’d almost certainly get out within days.
Ford, a Canadian citizen, would not be deported, because he’s not charged with a violent felony.
TMZ broke the story … Ford has repeatedly scaled the mountainside of Kendall’s gated community … once ended up by her pool and another time on her porch before he was nabbed by cops. He was placed on a psychiatric hold but released in 36 hours, because a psychiatrist found him mentally stable.
Ford was re-arrested Thursday for criminal trespass and held on $ 30k bail. He’ll be arraigned soon, but a judge could release him on his own recognizance pending trial.
The best Kendall can do … a civil restraining order, which she’s getting. If Ford violates that order, he can be arrested. Again, the problem, the justice system becomes a revolving door. Realistically the most effective step she can take is to hire private security.
