Bill gives prison time for pointing lasers at planes

Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Intentionally projecting a laser at a plane or in its flight path in Louisiana could land a person in jail, under a bill that won the unanimous support Monday of the House.

The measure (House Bill 1029) by Rep. Terry Landry, D-New Iberia, would carry a prison sentence of at least one year and up to five years for a first offense.

Subsequent offenses would carry a minimum prison sentence of two years and up to 10 years.

The bill heads next to the Senate for debate.
