Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin has hired a 24/7 security detail following her ex-fiancé ‘s early release from prison. Sweetin, 35, fears that her ex Justin Hodak, seen in Los Angeles over the weekend, may try to approach her after a three-month prison stint for making threats and illegal gun possession.
Hodak, 40, was sentenced to six years with an eight month suspended sentence for the gun charge and for falsifying evidence by threatening a witness with force or implied force. Originally, he was busted for violating a restraining order filed by Sweetin.
On May 5, a judge ordered Hodak to serve 120 days in L.A. County Jail in addition to a 52-week domestic violence course and to stay away from Sweetin for five years.
Credited with time already served in jail, Hodak managed to get released on May 22. It’s believed the writer and producer is unemployed and staying in East LA while he gets his life back on track.
According to DailyMail.com, Kodak is also required to wear an electronic tag which monitors his every move.
A source close to Sweetin told Daily Mail: “Jodie found out that Justin was out and as you can imagine she’s terrified, she’s scared that he might act out and do something crazy to harm her.”
Warner Bros., the studio that produces Netflix’s Fuller House, is paying for the 24/7 private security detail for Sweetin. The armed guards watch her home and follow her during the day.
“She’s got a huge security guard with her all the time so feels a lot safer as a result,” the source said.
Sweetin split from Hodak in March following a massive argument during which Hodak knocked over a seven foot shelving unit in a first of rage.
He was then arrested three times within a nine-day period.
Hodak was first busted on March 18 when Sweetin called the police because he allegedly threatened to commit suicide.
