New York: Former WABC-TV weather lady Heidi Jones has been indicted over fake claims that an unknown Hispanic man sexually assaulted her in Central Park.
Though, prosecutors rarely seek an indictment for lower level crimes, Jones has been charged for the phony claims.
“I don``t know what it means,” the New York Daily News quoted Jone’s lawyer Paul Callan as saying.
Callan wants the indictment to be tossed because Jones was not been given a chance to defend herself before the panel.
“The case was presented to the grand jury without any notification to me or my client ...The grand jury has returned a misdemeanor indictment,” he added.
