The news camerawoman who caused an international outrage in 2015 when she was filmed tripping refugees near the Hungarian border has been sentenced. A judge in the case did not accept Petra Laszlo’s explanation that she was somehow reacting in self-defense. However, she was not charged with a hate crime associated with acts committed because of racial motivations. Another cameraperson even filmed her tripping a man carrying a small child.
Laszlo will not serve an jail time in the case. Last year she was fired from her job, apologizing for the incident, but then said she planned on suing Abdul Mohsen, the Syrian father who she tripped in the video.
