The Little White Weather Woman Who Cried Rape Faces Charges

- By Bossip Staff

Looks like this lying wheffah is sh*t out of luck now:

Out-in-the-cold TV meteorologist Heidi Jones is due at a Manhattan courthouse Tuesday on charges she snowed authorities by falsely claiming that a man had tried to rape her in September as she jogged in Central Park. Jones, who remains suspended from her forecasting job at WABC/Channel 7, will enter a plea of not guilty before a criminal court judge, said her lawyer, Paul Callan.

“We urge everyone to keep an open mind until the conclusion of the case,” the lawyer counseled. “This entire thing has been extremely stressful for her,” he added. Jones, who also filled in on “Good Morning America,” is charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly filing a false police report, a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Cops say Jones, 37, told them she was jogging in the park on the afternoon of Sept. 24 when a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s grabbed her from behind, dragging her into a wooded area and trying to rape her.

Two passers-by frightened the man away and gave her assistance, she claimed. Jones only took her account to cops two months later, sources have told The Post. She explained then that she was spurred to action after the same man somehow found her again and confronted her, saying, “I know you went to the police.”

Detectives embarked on a lengthy investigation, scouring surveillance video and canvassing for witnesses, sources said. Returning empty handed, they questioned Jones again, uncovering inconsistencies as she repeated her account. Confronted with the discrepancies, Jones allegedly admitted to cops that she fabricated the story as a bid for sympathy after some unknown setback in her personal life, sources said.

Poor Thang.
