LOS ANGELES -- A plea deal was accepted today by a woman accused of stalking actor John Cusack.

33 year-old Emily Leatherman pleaded no contest to a felony count of stalking Cusack which will keep her out of state prison. The Judge immediately sentenced her to five years' probation and mandatory psychiatric counseling. Leatherman was also ordered to stay away from the 42-year-old actor for the next 10 years.

Thursday, Leatherman claimed her legal team coerced her into accepting the plea deal prompting the judge to throw out the proposal. However, before she was led away by bailiffs, she shouted, "I want to take it." Leatherman was allowed to reconsider and accept the last minute deal Friday.

In a rambling statement Friday morning, Leatherman claimed she was the victim of sex crimes and thought Cusack could help her.

Cusack wasn't present in court, but a prosecutor read a statement from him that stated he had never met Leatherman but hoped she received proper psychiatric help.

Leatherman, 33, was arrested outside Cusack's home in March.
