Alison Michelle Ernst, the Phoenix woman charged with throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas, has been sentenced to one year of supervised release.
U.S. Magistrate Judge George Foley Jr. also sentenced Ernst to the six months she spent behind bars following her arrest on the Strip in April. He gave her credit for that time.
As part of her supervised release conditions, Ernst must restrict her travel to Arizona, undergo a mental evaluation and have no contact with anyone under U.S. Secret Service protection.
At the time, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Newman questioned Ernst’s mental condition and said her erratic public behavior had escalated over the years.
Newman said Ernst had contact with the Secret Service when she threw a pill box on the White House lawn and pestered Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan so much that he obtained a restraining order against her.
Ernst also tried to meet with the president of Iran and was detained at an airport in Qatar for making a false bomb threat, Newman said.
Authorities originally charged Ernst in April with hurling a black and orange Puma cleat at Clinton while the former U.S. secretary of state addressed a metal recycling conference at Mandalay Bay.
