American Pie star Natasha Lyonne has avoided going to jail after a judge was impressed that she is making an effort to keep herself clean from drugs and handed herself in following an allegation that she threatened to molest her New York neighbour’s dog.
In December 2004, she was charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass and harassment after she gained entrance to a female neighbour’s apartment. According to the complaint, Lyonne then ripped a mirror off the wall and said “I’m going to sexually molest your dog.”
The 27-year-old actress has also appeared in Blade and will also be seen in Jewish comedy Goyband has paid $2,000 compensation and is receiving ongoing drug counselling.
Born Natasha Braunstein in New York, Lyonne spent time in Israel as a child before coming back to New York after her parents divorced.
Under her conditional discharge, if Lyonne is not arrested within the next six months, the charges will be dismissed.
