Virginia H.B. 638 (the Bill), which concerns unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or drones), passed the Virginia House and Senate and is now awaiting signature from the governor. The Bill “prohibits any person, after being given actual notice to desist, from knowingly and intentionally causing any UAS to enter the property of another and come within 50 feet of a dwelling house with the specific intent to coerce, intimidate or harass any other person.” The Bill also prohibits registered sex offenders from “using or operating a UAS to knowingly and intentionally follow, contact or capture images of another person without permission of such person when images render the person recognizable by his face, likeness or other distinguishing characteristic.” It also prohibits the respondent of a protective order from using UAS in the same way. A violation could result in a misdemeanor, which includes a sentence of up to 12 months in prison.
