Sharon Stone has been ordered by a Los Angeles jury to pay $232,000 to a man who claimed he fell on the Basic Instinct star’s property, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Peter Krause (not the actor) asserted that he dropped more than 15 ft into a ravine while doing work on Stone’s estate and suffered major injuries.

The jury ultimately determined that Stone was negligent because her fence wasn’t up to code, and strong enough to prevent the fall.

Krause says that in 2008, while he was installing outdoor wiring on her property, he fell down a “large concealed drop-off” onto a fence that then gave way, sending him tumbling into a neighbor’s property. Krause says he has been unable to work since the accident.
