Heidi Jones could face jail for allegedly lying to police. Heidi Jones allegedly lied about being raped and could face a year in jail. She is accused of filing a false police report.

Jones, the weather anchor for New York's WABC-TV, was suspended from her job earlier this week. However, most legal analysts don't think that the misdemeanor charge will put her in jail. She could just walk away with a $1,000 fine and probation.

The weather anchor also serves as a fill-in on Good Morning America. She claimed that a man sexually assaulted her on Sept. 24. However, Jones never reported the rape until two months later after the alleged incident.

WABC said Wednesday that Heidi Jones has been suspended pending an internal investigation. Police say the 37-year-old later admitted she fabricated the story. She was given a desk-appearance ticket for misdemeanor charges of filing a false report.
