    'Balloon boy' parents to plead guilty to avoid deportation - USATODAY.com

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The attorney for the Colorado father who reported his son floated away in a helium balloon says his client and the boy's mother will both plead guilty to charges in the case.
    The parents of "Balloon Boy" Falcon Heene will enter guilty pleas in court Friday as part of a deal to avoid deportation to Japan for Mayumi Heene.

    In a statement released early this morning, Heene attorney David Lane said Mayumi will plead guilty to false reporting to authorities, a misdemeanor, with a stipulated sentence to probation.

    The boy's father Richard Heene will plead guilty to attempting to influence a public servant, a felony, with a stipulated sentence to probation, according to the statement.

    In the statement, Lane said authorities insisted that Richard Heene "fall on his sword" and take a felony plea.
