Man, 21, Sentenced For Pointing Laser At Law Enforcement Aircraft

LOS ANGELES ( — A 21-year-old man is expected to serve three years of supervised probation as part of his sentence in connection with a laser pointing incident involving a law enforcement aircraft last year, officials said.

A news release by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office says Alvaro Jimenez was sentenced Friday after pleading no contest to discharging a laser at an aircraft.

His sentence includes 60 days of community service, as well as, $240 in restitution and fees.

The statement said Jimenez and 23-year-old Floyd Atkins were arrested on July 4, after air units were able to locate laser beam activity.

Atkins, who was convicted of the same charge, is expected to be sentenced on Nov. 1.
