Kobe Bryant Crash Scene Photo Leaks Leads To New California Law

By  |  0 Comments

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday approved legislation prompted by the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and eight other people, making it a crime for first responders to take unauthorized photos of deceased people at the scene of an accident or crime. Reports surfaced after the Jan. 26 crash that killed Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the others that graphic photos of the victims were being shared.

Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, has sued the department over the photos. In March, she said she was “absolutely devastated” by allegations that deputies shared the graphic photos.
