A jury has acquitted a man of stalking model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner and convicted him of trespassing at her secluded Hollywood Hill home

A jury of seven women and five men returned the verdict against Shavaughn McKenzie after a seven-day trial in which Jenner described her fear at finding McKenzie lurking in her driveway and banging on her car window in August.

"I've never been so scared in my life," the 20-year-old Jenner testified, saying she had recognised McKenzie as the same man who twice accosted her while she was driving outside her former home.

Jenner said his refusal to leave her Hollywood Hills property prompted her to make panicked calls to friends for help.

Deputy City Attorney Alex Perez said in court that McKenzie, 25, had tracked Jenner's whereabouts for 15 months before his arrest.

McKenzie's lawyer Taylor Shramo urged jurors to reject the charges, saying McKenzie merely wanted to talk to Jenner and posed no danger to her.

A forensic psychiatrist hired to evaluate McKenzie testified that he was delusional and his efforts to locate Jenner were part of his mental illness.
