The two guards — Miguel Solis and Alexander Rivas — approached two photographers outside the power couple's 50-person Costa Rican wedding celebration, and demanded they turn over their cameras and memory cards.
It is not clear whether the photographers — one of whom worked for AFP — turned over their equipment, although reports suggest they refused. Either way, as they left and attempted to drive away, the bodyguards fired a shot at them. No one was injured.
In a unanimous decision, the bodyguards — who refused to testify — were each sentenced to five years in prison for the fired shot, and both will have to pay about $10,000 to each of the photographers. A third bodyguard charged in the incident was acquitted.
