Tougher penalties for paparazzi in California
CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - California Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation imposing tougher penalties on those who harass children of celebrities and other public figures.
The law increases penalties for actions that include taking photos or videos of a child without consent or in a harassing manner.
Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner both testified in support of the bill.
Media organizations opposed the legislation, saying it was overly broad and could restrict legitimate news-gathering activities.
