Former News Anchor Pleads Guilty to Filing False Sexual Assault Claim

Posted by Courtney Pilchman | Sep 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

For those of you who don't believe men don't get falsely accused of sexual assault, here is yet ANOTHER case that proves otherwise. Former WABC-TV on-air meteorologist Heidi Jones lost her lucrative position after she plead guilty to falsely claiming a Hispanic man nearly attacked her in Central Park. Jones made two false reports, one on November 21, 2010 and one on November 24, 2010.

Jones pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of false reporting and will likely receive probation and community service. Jones claims stress at work and home led her to seek attention and that is the reason she falsely claimed a man sexually assaulted her.
