A 21-year-old gay former college football player was ordered by a judge to stay at least 200 yards away from 71-year-old media mogul David Geffen, TMZ reports.
Jamie Kuntz pled no contest to misdemeanor stalking in L.A. on Monday ... and will undergo at least one year of psychological counseling -- twice a week -- and remain on probation for 2 years. Most importantly to Geffen -- Kuntz must say at least 200 yards away from him for a decade.
Kuntz was arrested in October after Geffen claimed he was stalking and harassing him. Kuntz pleaded not guilty at the time and his attorney said in December it was a case of a physical relationship that turned into unrequited love, but that there were never any threats toward Geffen.
Kuntz made national news in September 2012 when he was kicked off the team as a freshman linebacker for the North Dakota State College of Science. Kuntz, who was injured at the time and was filming his team's game, was caught kissing his then 65-year-old boyfriend in the press box.
He lied to his coach about it, telling him the older man was his grandfather. Kuntz was then dismissed from the team for conduct detrimental to the team, with the player alleging it was because he was gay. The school has insisted Kuntz's sexual orientation played no role. Kuntz never suited up again.
I spoke with Kuntz during the 2012 situation and he was someone clearly lost after being denied the chance to play football. He was unsuccessful in transferring to another school and I had lost contact with him. The Geffen story is sad for Kuntz, but here's hoping the regular counseling can do some good.
