A judge also issued a criminal protective order requiring him to stay away from the 28-year-old victim for the next 10 years.

Garcia became infatuated with the young woman when she was working as a waitress in Nice in 2012. He repeatedly showed up at the restaurant, sent her expensive gifts and train tickets, and wrote her long, obsessive messages. When she left for Mexico to start a business, he followed.

In Mexico, the harassment became worse. According to the victim, Garcia sent her long messages detailing the clothes she had worn on a particular day and the color of her bicycle as proof he had seen her, even if she had not seen him.

She was forced to stop using the Internet and shut down her social media accounts in a bid to thwart his advances, and was terrified to leave her home.

Police in Mexico deported Garcia, who is a dual French and Spanish citizen. But he returned, forcing her to shut down her business and leave for San Francisco, where her father lives.

San Francisco police investigators advised her to get a restraining order, which Garcia violated repeatedly, prompting his arrest in December.
