Emotional Scenes Reported as Vanessa Bryant Sobs During Kobe Bryant Photo Trial

Vanessa Bryant sobbed in court after her emotions engulfed her as her lawyer addressed the jury in opening statements.

She said that eight L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies took photos of the bodies of her husband and child “for a laugh, like they were souvenirs.”

Vanessa’s lawyer said the deputies “poured salt in an unhealable wound” by using their cell phones to take the photos for personal use.

The lawyer described “pictures of broken bodies, close-ups of limbs and burnt flesh.”

Meanwhile, Vanessa lives “in fear, anxiety, and terror” that she and her family may see the images someday.

The lawyer said Vanessa’s children were her everything, Kobe was her everything, and she will be forever haunted by what the deputies did.

The crux of the case involves L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies who took photos of the bodies of Kobe and her daughter Gianna at the crash scene and then shared them with colleagues.

A deputy was accused of showing the images to a lady at a pub, and the bartender blew the whistle.

Vanessa says in her lawsuit that the officers’ actions caused her extreme emotional distress and a breach of privacy.

However, lawyers for L.A. County responded by claiming Vanessa’s emotional distress is rooted in the crash, not the photos.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the Kobe Bryant Act 2 years ago.

The bill makes it a crime for first responders to share photos of a dead person at a crime scene for purposes unrelated to the case.
