Jerry Brown signed into law Monday a bill closing a legal loophole that allowed a rape conviction to be overturned because the woman was not married.<br /><br />The bill, AB65, sponsored by Republican state Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian of San Luis Obispo, fixes a state law dating to the 1870s that said impersonating a person's spouse to have sex was rape. The law now also includes impersonating a person's cohabitant, boyfriend or girlfriend.<br /><br />The revision was prompted by a 2009 case for which Julio Morales was sentenced to three years in state prison for impersonating a woman's boyfriend in order to have sex with her. A panel of judges overturned the trial court's conviction in January because under the arcane law she wasn't protected—she wasn't married and the man wasn't pretending to be her husband.<br /><br />Morales was accused of entering the woman's bedroom late one night and initiating sexual intercourse while she was asleep after a night of drinking. The victim said her boyfriend was in the room when she fell asleep and they'd decided to not have sex because he didn't have a condom and had to be somewhere early the next day.<br /><span id="fullpost"> <br />Morales pretended to be her boyfriend in the darkened room, and it wasn't until a ray of light from outside the room flashed across his face that she realized he wasn't her boyfriend, according to prosecutors.<br /><br />Another bill, AB157, sponsored by Democratic state Assemblywoman Nora Campos of San Jose, was also signed into law Monday. It expands restraining orders to include high-tech domestic abuse such as false impersonation or online identity theft.<br /><br />Such abuse occurs when people take over victims' online identities to humiliate or harass them, usually after a break up. <a href="http://www.contracostatimes.com/california/ci_24054298/gov-brown-signs-law-closing-rape-loophole">..Source..</a> by Contra Costa Times</span><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0z8Ak9rex0s/UemNg25kPzI/AAAAAAAAAYA/j7JaF2Rgf3g/s1600/a-news-4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" height="146" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0z8Ak9rex0s/UemNg25kPzI/AAAAAAAAAYA/j7JaF2Rgf3g/s200/a-news-4.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><b>9-10-2013 California:</b><br /><br />Gov.
