Central Coast woman receives copy of signed bill

The Central Coast woman who inspired a piece of California legislation now has a signed copy of the bill.

Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian and Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley gave a signed copy of AB-65 to Courtney Wettach Thursday.

The bill makes it clear that if someone impersonates a rape victim's partner or spouse, they can be found guilty of felony rape.

The bill was inspired by Wettach's case in Santa Barbara County.

A man had sex with her while posing as her boyfriend.

It took achadjian three years to get the law passed in Sacramento.
