Richard Heene will plead guilty to the most serious charges in the balloon boy hoax to ensure that there is no chance his wife, Mayumi, will be deported to Japan, the family's lawyer says.
Local sheriff says the whole thing was a hoax to gain publicity and four charges in the 'balloon boy' incident are coming.
Richard Heene wanted his own reality TV show, and the balloon boy story seems to have given it to him. Now, we're all actors in this pathetic drama.
