  • NEW YORK (AP) — An Illinois man who served jail time for stalking R&B singer Ashanti has been indicted in New York for again stalking and harassing the Grammy Award-winner.

    Prosecutors say Devar Hurd was indicted Friday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. Prosecutors say he violated an order of protection when he sent more than 100 tweets to the singer’s Twitter account between Sept. 2012 and last weekend.

    His bail was set at $750,000. He is expected to be arraigned sometime next month.

    In Feb. 2010 the 35-year-old was sentenced to two years in jail for sending a battery of text messages and photos to Ashanti’s mother. Prosecutors said Friday some of his tweets were sexually explicit.

    Hurd’s attorney did not respond to a message seeking comment.
