New York: A judge has ruled that Uma Thurman``s loopy stalker must make hefty bail of half a million dollars or stay behind bars.

Jack Jordan was convicted of harassing the "Kill Bill" actress for six years.

His lawyer argued that last week``s new indictment of his client - who was convicted in 2008 of stalking the actress for six years - was unwarranted.

"The indictments are a stretch," the New York Daily News quoted lawyer Sam Robertsas saying.

Jordan is accused of making two phone calls to Thurman last month - two years after he was sentenced to probation and ordered to stay away from her.

"We are not talking about a long-term continuing course of conduct," Roberts said.

Prosecutors begged to differ.

"The defendant was here stalking Uma Thurman for six years," Assistant DA Michelle Kamisky told Justice Gregory Carro of the actress.

"The defendant is unrelenting in his course of conduct towards Ms. Thurman," Kamisky said.

The Manhattan judge agreed to set a high bail - one that Jordan, who has a legal aid attorney, is not expected to make.
