Not so fast…!
Remember last month when the pesky paparazzo, Paul Raef — who trailed Justin Bieber down the 101 Freeway — officially got charged???
Raef’s four charges fell under California’s brand new “Paparazzi Law,” with him being the very first person ever charged…and he’s not too happy about it!
Now, the photog is planning on pleading NOT guilty in court, defending his actions by comparing them to that of a news reporter racing to the scene of a breaking story!
Um…we’re not quite sure this is the same thing, Paul!!
Raef and his lawyer are now saying that the new law strips the pap of his First Amendment right — freedom of the press!!
The new law, however, aims to prevent dangerous situations from occurring, by punishing those who create them for cash!
The pap's lawyer has asked the judge to dismiss the charges and the judge still has yet to make a ruling.
For bieby sakes, we hope he pays big time!
