Un exemple à prendre. Cela calmerait certains Laser-Pointing Case Leads To 14-Year Sentence
A 26-year-old is given one of the longest sentences known for such a case, after being told his actions could have been deadly.
A man convicted of pointing a high-powered laser at a police helicopter has been sentenced to 14 years in prison
It is believed to be one of the longest sentences for such a crime.
Sergio Rodriguez, 26, of Clovis, California, was accused of pointing a green laser 13 times more powerful than typical devices at a Fresno Police Department helicopter in 2012.
The helicopter had been called to an apartment building where an emergency helicopter for a children's hospital had also reported being targeted by a laser.
Prosecutors said Rodriguez aimed his laser at police on purpose, and in December he was found guilty of attempting to interfere with the safe operation of an aircraft and aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft.
US District Judge Lawrence O'Neill described Rodriguez as a "walking crime spree".
In handing down the sentence, the judge said Rodriguez had carried out an act with deadly potential.
According to his lawyers, Rodriguez meant no harm while he played with his young family, aiming the inexpensive store-bought laser towards the sky.
Rodriguez, who has a long criminal record, was tried alongside his 23-year-old girlfriend, Jennifer Lorraine Coleman, who was found guilty on one count of aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft.
She is scheduled to be sentenced in May and faces up to five years in prison.
Authorities say laser devices can dazzle pilots and lead to crashes.
