Sharon StoneSharon Stone has been ordered to pay $232,000 to a man who was injured on her property in 2006.

Peter Krause sued the Basic Instinct star in 2008, two years after he sustained a knee injury by falling through latticework and into a neighbor's yard while working on her house. Stone took to the stand this week to testify there was a fence in the spot where the plaintiff alleged the accident happened.

However, a jury ruled the Hollywood beauty was negligent for failing to have a fence sturdy enough to prevent Krause's fall.

Stone's lawyer told reporters outside court, "We're disappointed they did not take her testimony at face value."

Her attorney is considering an appeal, reports Eonline.com.
