NEW YORK (AP) — A Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwinsays she’s confident her lawyer will be able to show she committed no crime.

Genevieve Sabourin spoke after a brief, procedural Manhattan court hearing Monday. She was upbeat.

Defense lawyer Maurice Sercarz says Sabourin had a legitimate purpose for trying to contact Baldwin and had a relationship with him. He won’t describe the nature of the relationship.

“30 Rock” Renewed for a Final Season

The Quebecois actress and the “30 Rock” star met on a movie set a decade ago and went to dinner together at least once in 2010.

Prosecutors say she sent Baldwin a string of emails this spring imploring him to marry her. She was arrested at Baldwin’s apartment building. A court document says she told police then she needed to speak with the actor.
