As of now, it’s unsure if he actually has broke the Stolen Valor law since the law also states to Violate he has to make or received some sort of benefit from their wearing of Military Medals or uniforms. Though in the Videos he has said he done so. Need evidence of Johnny Bea actually doing so. Wearing the medals while receiving some benefit.
For those who say that Stolen Valor was overturned and that it protected speech. They are right that it was overturned by the Supreme Court but then Congress passed a new version of the law that protects the valor of those who serve.
H.R.258 — 113th Congress (2013-2014)
Stolen Valor Act of 2013 – Amends the federal criminal code to rewrite provisions relating to fraudulent claims about military service to subject to a fine, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both an individual who, with intent to obtain money, property, or other tangible benefit, fraudulently holds himself or herself out to be a recipient of:
- a Congressional Medal of Honor,
- a distinguished-service cross,
- a Navy cross,
- an Air Force cross,
- a silver star,
- a Purple Heart,
- a Combat Infantryman’s Badge,
- a Combat Action Badge,
- a Combat Medical Badge,
- a Combat Action Ribbon,
- a Combat Action Medal, or
- any replacement or duplicate medal for such medal as authorized by law.
So under Federal Law Johnny Bea (Name on Facebook)
Is in Violation of Wearing US Military Medals which he never earned because of not serving in the US Military is in Violation of Federal Law.
