Julio Mario Medal, 38, was sentenced to five years probation and 120 hours of community service after pleading to secretly videotaping for sexual gratification, attempted videotaping for sexual gratification and unlawful loitering.

 

These charges are considered misdemeanors. According to Section 647 of the California Penal Code, the suspect will not have to register as a sex offender.

 

During a March 15 incident, Medal was found attempting to photograph Brittanie Weaver, 24, while they were both in the pet store “Puppy and Me” in Sherman Oaks. It was after Medal bent down to pet her dog, the professional model noticed he was trying to use his iPad to take upskirt photos of her.

 

Store surveillance footage caught the incident on tape. Weaver took to social media to discuss the incident which assisted authorities in locating the suspect. Charges were filed in May 2013 by officials.

 

In a press statement, attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Weaver, expressed a need to make the actions of Medal a felonious offense. “Obviously, the law has not kept up with advances in the tech world and the law needs to be changed,” said Allred.

 

Allred also announced in the statement that she and Weaver will be searching for legislators to sponsor a bill to make such actions a felony.
