He did the crime, he's doing the time. All of it.

Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr., the 26-year-old former Army reservist turned E! HQ bum rusher will serve the maximum sentence—two years in state prison—for stalking Ryan Seacrest.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John S. Fisher handed down the sentence today, after Uzomah Jr. completed a 90-day psychiatric evaluation. He had entered a no contest plea for the felony stalking charge earlier this year and his other two pending misdemeanor counts, for violating his court order, were dismissed.

The judge also issued a protective order at today's sentencing requiring Uzomah Jr. to stay at least 500 yards away from Seacrest and any of his ever-multiplying workplaces for a whopping 10 years. On behalf of our fearless leader, let us be the first to say: thank you, judge.
