Taylor Swift can breathe a little quieter. Eric Swarbrick, the man he had reported harassment, has pleaded guilty.In early 2018, the artist began receiving emails through the Big Machine Label Group, the record company she worked for, with the purpose of meeting the artist, as well as the federal prosecutors of Nashville, Tenesse, in an official statement .
The goal of this 27-year-old changed as the days and number of letters progressed, becoming increasingly threatening and violent messages against Taylor. In addition, on some occasion Swarbrick went personally to the offices to personally deliver the message to the interpreter of Blank Space and even wandered through the halls.
The stalker wrote a total of 40 letters before being charged in September 2018, but it has not been until now that he has pleaded guilty. Thus, the defendant will remain in custody until March 2020 that the sentence will be carried out for which he could be punished with five years in prison and a fine of $ 250,000 (225,000 euros).
Meanwhile, after nine years without going through our country, Taylor Swift has just got on the Mad Cool 2020 poster, the rock, indie and electronic festival held every year in the Spanish capital and that has brought together more than 150 artists since its first edition in 2016. Its fifth edition will take place from June 8 to 11 and will bring together artists such as Billie Eilish, Twenty One Pilots, Pixies, Alt-J and Tove Lo.
