Audrina Patridge

Audrina Patridge doesn't have to run for The Hills anymore.

Zachary Loring, the 25-year-old man who pleaded no contest to stalking the reality starlet last June, was sentenced Thursday in Los Angeles to two years in state prison, E! News has learned.

Along with the jail term, L.A. Superior Court Judge William C. Ryanto also ordered the obsessed fan to stay at least 500 yards away from the 25-year-old Patridge and her home for the next 10 years. He'll also have to pay a $250 fine.

Loring, however, will receive 546 days of credit for good behavior and time already served, so he could be out of the slammer in a few months.

After an outburst in court last March, Loring was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation and was subsequently diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. This following his Feb. 19 arrest when he trespassed on the former Dancing With the Stars contestant's property carring a knife in his backpack hoping to meet her.

That violated a three-year restraining order put in place against Loring in Sept. 2009 after the dude showed up at Patridge's front door a month earlier uninvited delivering a stack of creepy poems, pictures and cards he made for her, one of which included a drawing of a woman being strangled.

A rep for Patridge was unavailable for comment.
