Balloon-boy parents: False reporting / Class 3 misdemeanor

Charges pending in "balloon boy" saga


The Larimer County Sheriff's Office announced Saturday night it is drawing up search warrants and expects to file charges in the "balloon boy" saga.

Sheriff Jim Alderden made the announcement after Richard Heene and his wife voluntarily met with officials at the Larimer County Sheriff's headquarters for several hours.

The sheriff did not give specifics, but he said the charges would likely be a class 3 misdemeanor. False reporting is a Class 3 misdemeanor.

Alderson said that the misdemeanor charges "hardly seem serious enough" and that he would be talking to the district attorney and federal officials to see what other charges could be considered.
