Balloon Boy's Dad Goes To Jail

Richard-heene-mug-shot-in-jail-released Balloon Boy's father, Richard Heene, began serving his 90 day sentence yesterday.  This was after he went on a campaign telling anyone who would listen he didn't do anything wrong.

See, he has this theory that the whole "balloon boy" thing was just a big misunderstanding and the workings of a corrupt DA.  Except he is forgetting the part when the judge asks you during your guilty plea, "are you pleading guilty because you are in fact guilty?"  I'm assuming he answered yes to the question, because judges don't accept guilty pleas without it.  And if you watch this, he is admitting perjury.

If I was the DA, I would have filled a motion to have his guilty plea invalidated and gone to trial. Or maybe filed perjury charges. But I guess it really doesn't matter because he is in jail now.

And maybe the family will just go away now.

Yeah um judging by that GREAT acting job he might just be the perfect replacement for Simon on American Idol "That was wretched"... "Oh wait no I didn't really mean that Ellen was trying to frame me, it was all a misunderstanding you're in". Funny how the make you get a license to murder fish but here ya go jackhole have a kid or three!

His wife would have been better off if she had gotten deported and took the kids with her.
