Richard And Mayumi Heene Get Sentenced

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Richard Heene, the father of "Balloon Boy" Falcon Heene, pleaded guilty Friday to a felony charge of attempting to influence a public servant stemming from the families' Oct. 15 hoax, according to CNN. His wife, Mayumi Heene, is charged with one misdemeanor count of false reporting to authorities.
I doubt they'll get the max - on anything - and while I'm a little torn on that (just out of principle in this case) it's probably the best decision for the family as a whole - meaning the kids.
