Balloon Boy hoax in the hands of Larimer County District Attorney

This whole balloon boy hoax, put on by Richard and Mayumi Heene, residents of Fort Collins, CO, is now in the hands of the Larimer County District Attorney. This does not bode well for the Heene family. The D.A. released this statement: “On October 26, 2009, Larimer County Sheriff’s investigators presented the District Attorney’s Office with their investigative findings regarding the October 15, 2009 incident involving Richard and Mayumi Heene. The District Attorney’s Office has requested additional information and will be making a charging decision as soon as we have had an opportunity to complete a careful review and analysis of this case.”

The sherriff involved with this case from the beginning, Jim Alderden, definitely wants the Heenes to be charged. He will recommend charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, making a false report to authorities and attempting to influence a public servant.

How will this whole debacle pan out?
