The 20-year-old popular YouTuber with a catch phrase “It’s Everyday Bro!” having 1.3 billion total views and 8 million subscribers might be facing 1 year in jail or a $2,500 fine.
He lives in LA and in California where they have an eavesdropping law that you cannot record anyone without their knowledge and upload the footage on your YouTube channel with millions of subscribers. Well Jake Paul did just that.
In a previous vlog, he went up to his neighbors and apologized, while he went for the apology, he kept on recording it. Also, the neighbors had absolutely no idea that Jake was recording the conversation and that they will be the star attraction of Jake Paul’s new video.
Christopher Wolfe is the reporter who broke the story that Jake Paul is creating tons of nuisance for his neighbors.
He also tweeted today “Neighbor files eavesdropping complaint against #JakePaul; says JP secretly recorded conversation during ‘apology’.”
This is not just an allegation on the behalf of neighbors, there is a video uploaded on his YouTube channel of the entire conversation. If the prosecutor decides to charge the crime of eavesdropping as a misdemeanor, then the maximum penalties are a fine of up to $2,500 up to one (1) year in county jail, or both. If he is charged as a felon, then eavesdropping is punishable by up to 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years in state prison, a $2,500 fine, or both.
This is just the tip of the iceberg; Yesterday the bus of Team 10 broke down in the middle of highway. Jake Paul uploaded a video to his YouTube channel. in this video he accused his neighbors of trying to kill him.
He said in his video that a night before, one of the neighbors came over and unscrewed the screws on the tyres of his Team 10 van. “The neighbors are trying to kill us bro!”, He added.
He said they took the nuts out of the tire. He said he was driving slow on the highway and the tyre rolled off and the bus lopsided in the middle of the traffic bringing the traffic to a halt. They were in a dangerous and potentially life threatening situation. He clearly accused his neighbors of trying to kill him.
There is no doubt that this is an extremely serious allegation. There is no proof that his neighbors did this or he might have done it by himself to set his neighbors up, who knows?
He might have set this up to make him look like a victim during all this drama and hatred he is getting.
The New York Times reported him with the headline “Jake Paul, a Reality Villain for the YouTube Generation”
Christopher Wolfe who broke the news spoke to the neighbors and then tweeted “Neighbors stunned by #JakePaul accusations they tried to kill him by loosening tire”
There is actual jail time and heavy fine we are looking at when it comes to crimes like this.
