More Good News: Ex-WABC Weather Woman Heidi Jones Indicted for Making False Rape Report

You remember Heidi Jones? Here's the update:

MANHATTAN SUPREME COURT — Former WABC weather woman Heidi Jones was indicted on charges she made a false rape claim last year, prosecutors said Wednesday. Jones, 37, allegedly admitted to making up a story that a "Hispanic" attacker tried to rape her in Central Park on Sept. 24.

She pleaded not guilty to two counts of falsely reporting an incident and is scheduled to return to court on Aug. 17. Her attorney, Paul Callan, said he will ask to have the case dismissed on the grounds that she was denied her right to a speedy trial because it is a misdemeanor case.  Jones was arrested on Dec. 13, 2010. She was released without bail.
