ABSTRACT (ABSTRACT) In addition to prison, Judge [William Hibbler] barred [Alicia M. Floyd] from any contact with the psychologist. He

also ordered her to pay the psychologist $358 in restitution–the cost of installing a home-security system.

FULL TEXT This story is a composite of the versions published in the various zones.

A woman with a history of psychiatric troubles pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to stalking her

psychologist and was promptly sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Alicia M. Floyd, 29, had carved the psychologist’s initials into her arm and dressed all in black for two trips from her

Wisconsin home to the psychologist’s west suburban residence in May 2000, prosecutors said.

Authorities alleged Floyd had a kitchen carving knife with her on the first trip and planned to kill the psychologist

and herself.

But Floyd of Oak Creek, Wis., testified Thursday that she had lied when she told a psychiatrist and a police officer

about having a knife with her “because I was really looking for help.”

U.S. District Judge William Hibbler pointed out that in a diary of Floyd’s seized by authorities, she had recounted

the first trip to the psychologist’s home in great detail but didn’t mention having a knife.

Assistant U.S. Atty. John Kocoras said Floyd, a U.S. Navy veteran who was undergoing treatment at a Veterans

Affairs medical center in Milwaukee, had become angered after the psychologist refused to answer questions

about her personal life.

When the counseling session at the medical center ended that day in May 2000, Floyd prevented the psychologist

from leaving the room and a VA police officer had to intervene, according to her plea agreement with prosecutors.

Later that same day, Floyd drove to the psychologist’s Elmhurst home dressed in black clothing and boots, parked

her car two blocks away and viewed the victim’s residence through binoculars, Kocoras said.

She left a satin rose on the doorstep of the psychologist’s home and returned to her Wisconsin residence late at

night, writing in her diary, “It’s midnight and I just went through the coolest six hours.”

Late that month, Floyd was arrested after she showed up at the psychologist’s home in the evening and the victim

called police after holing up with her young son in a bathroom, authorities said.

Floyd’s lawyer, John Houlihan, said his client suffers from borderline personality disorder and believed the

psychologist was the only person to whom she could turn for help.

The psychologist testified Thursday that the ordeal had changed “my life … forever.”

“The horror I felt as this unfolded and the sense of dread that remains with me are hard to describe,” she said.

In addition to prison, Judge Hibbler barred Floyd from any contact with the psychologist. He also ordered her to

pay the psychologist $358 in restitution–the cost of installing a home-security system.
