Balloon Boy’s Parents to Plead Guilty

Nov 12, 2009  •  Post A Comment

"Balloon Boy’s" parents Richard and Mayumi Heene will face a judge in Larimer County, Colo., court on Friday concerning the Oct. 15 air balloon incident that turned out to be a hoax designed to attract the attention of TV audiences, reports NPR.

David Lane, the Heenes’ attorney, confirmed that Richard Heene will plead guilty to attempting to influence a public servant, a felony charge, but that Mayumi Heene will avoid possible deportation to Japan (where she remains a citizen) by copping to a lesser plea, a misdemeanor for making a false report to authorities.
