LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Leonard Cohen read an impassioned and sometimes funny statement in court Tuesday, during the sentencing of his former manager and onetime lover, Kelley Lynch.
Lynch was found guilty last week of breaching restraining orders and making scores of harassing emails and phone calls to the "" singer.
She was sentenced to 18 months in prison, including alcohol and anger management programs and mental evaluations, with reports every three months on her progress.
At end of 18 months, she is to undergo a mental evaluation to determine what the next step will be for the remainder of her overall five-year sentence.
In his statement, Cohen thanked his tormentor... for exposing her thievery through the trial.
