Vanzellas pleaded no contest to allegations he was harassing the singer after showing up at her L.A. home. The judge deemed him a "credible threat" and ruled that Rihanna had reason to fear him. The 26-year-old was sentenced to 365 days in L.A. County Jail, but was released in June 2011 after serving 277 days.
