Clay Aiken’s alleged stalker cleared

A woman accused of stalking Clay Aiken has been cleared after she claimed to have fallen victim to an elaborate hoax which led to a charge of trespassing on the singer’s property. Last April (13), Barbara Saylor, 58, from Washington, was hit with stalking and trespassing charges after she was arrested in the grounds of Aiken’s North Carolina home.
Saylor was allegedly caught sneaking into the star’s gated community, making her way onto the grounds of his property and reportedly looking through the windows of the house.
However, the case has now been dismissed after her attorney, Ken Steinberg, claimed Saylor was actually the victim of a scam in which she was duped into believing she was in contact with the singer.
Steinberg claims Saylor exchanged contact information with Aiken years ago, but somehow she had the wrong phone number and began texting a complete stranger.
Her attorney alleges the scammer maintained his false identity, leading her to believe she was talking to the real Aiken for years.
Their text message-based relationship culminated last April (13), when the fraudster convinced Saylor to visit to Aiken’s house, leading to her trespassing arrest.
Saylor’s text records were turned over to court officials, and the case was subsequently dismissed.
Documents were filed last week (beg27Jan14) to remove the arrest from her record, according to
