Ivanka Trump stalking suspect faces new charges

Ivanka Trump stalking suspect faces new charges

Prosecutors say a man obsessed with Ivanka Trump kept trying to contact her and her relatives while he was out on bail after being charged in New York with stalking her.
Justin Massler, 28, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to upgraded charges. Nevada-based Massler was arrested in Los Angeles after skipping some of his Manhattan court dates.
Massler initially was arrested last year. Prosecutors say he unleashed a slate of emails and Twitter messages about his fixation with Donald and Ivana Trump's daughter. They say he once threatened to kill himself in Ivanka Trump's Manhattan jewelry store.
A defense lawyer says Massler didn't intend to follow through on the comments.
An indictment says Massler kept trying to communicate with Trump in recent months despite a court order not to.
