This is not Bullock's first encounter with a stalker. In August 2010, the star filed a restraining order against a mentally ill man who had stalked her off and on for nearly a decade.
"You can't prevent people from doing crazy things. This happens. There are mentally ill people out there, and obviously celebrities have high exposure," Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Ninaz Saffari said.
Saffari said that while these crimes are not preventable, there are ways to protect victims. If Corbett is convicted of stalking, he may have to register as a sex offender, allowing Bullock to keep tabs on his whereabouts.
