Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian’s alleged cyber-stalker released from prison … days after a man obsessed with Kendall Jenner apprehended
Christina Bankston was released from prison on March 29, according to documents obtained by The Blast on Monday.
The Northern California woman was first indicted in 2016 for allegedly hacking Jenner’s iCloud account as well as sending ‘illicit and threatening’ texts to Kris, former spouse Caitlyn, two of Jenner’s assistants and two unnamed family members.

It was later revealed that Bankston, a nurse’s assistant, also allegedly hacked Kourtney Kardashian, Kris’ eldest child.
Bankston was released from custody last year but later re-arrested for ‘violating the terms of her release.’
According to The Blast, prosecutors in the case had ‘requested the judge dismiss the indictment and release Bankston from custody immediately.’
Additionally, the charges were dismissed ‘without prejudice’ which is legalese meaning that they can refile those charges at any time in the future.

Curiously, the outlet also reports that documents revealed Bankston underwent a ‘mental competency test’ but the results were not reviewed.
At the time of her original arrest, it was claimed that Bankston obtained the credentials for Kourtney’s AOL account which granted her access to the star’s email account and contact information.
She was also accused of hacking the email of another one of Kris’s family member who was not named.

Bankston allegedly also impersonated Kris in a text message exchange with Caitlyn Jenner and one of Jenner’s kids as well as impersonating the Momager in calls to the police, in which she reported fake incidents to authorities.
This news comes less than a week after a man accused of stalking Kendall Jenner was arrested by ICE in New Mexico.
ICE had been tracking a man named John Ford for several weeks before ‘HSI special agents, officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations’ apprehended him in the parking lot of a hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Monday, The Blast reported.

‘This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime,’ HSI El Paso special agent in charge, Jack P. Staton told the outlet.
The Kardashian-Jenner family said that thanks to ICE they now have ‘peace of mind’ when it comes to Kendall and their overall safety.
Ford had previously scaled a mountainside in order to gain access to Jenner’s property and was found near her pool.
