Runaway Bride Jennifer Wilbanks Indicted
Jennifer Wilbanks, the infamous runaway bride, was indicted today on several counts.
So-called runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks was indicted Wednesday on felony and misdemeanor charges, Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter announced. Wilbanks was indicted on one count of making false statements, a felony, and one count of falsely reporting a crime, a misdemeanor, the district attorney said.
The penalty for the felony charge is 1 to 5 years behind bars; the misdemeanor carries a sentence of up to 12 months in confinement, according to Porter.
I hope she gets the max. While Michael Demmons is well taken on the irony here,
[T]hey want to punish her for all the money she cost them by:
a.) spending a fortune on a trial to
b.) send her to a $50,000 a year prison.
I disagree that she’s done “nothing wrong” aside from a false 911 call. A grand jury apparently agrees. Of course, the Ham Sandwich cautionary applies.
As an aside, I predict that either Drew Barrymore or Paris Hilton will play Wilbanks in the made-for-television movie.
