A Los Angeles district attorney’s spokeswoman on Tuesday said that Jamie Ralph Kuntz, 21, pleaded no contest Feb. 9 to one misdemeanor count of stalking and was ordered to stay 200 yards away from Geffen for 10 years.

A defense lawyer says Kuntz got into trouble for showing up at Geffen’s homes after their short-term relationship ended.

Kuntz says he was kicked off the North Dakota State College of Sciences football team two years ago for being gay after he was seen kissing a 65-year-old boyfriend. His coach says he was removed for lying about the kiss.

Kuntz must attend psychiatric counseling twice a week for a year as a condition of his two-year probation term.
