Justin Bieber Car Chase Snapper Facing Prison Sentence
The new law, despite being enacted almost two years ago, has never been used. The police are confident that they will be able to pin the charge on Raef. The city attorney spokesman, Frank Mateljan stated that the photographer's case "meets all the criteria spelled out in the law," Bbc News reports. However, Douglas Mirell disagrees.
