DENVER, March 22 (UPI) -- Authorities in Denver said a woman who told a radio show she lied to get out of jury duty is facing felony charges.
The Denver District Attorney's Office said Judge Anne Mansfield, who dismissed Susan Cole from jury selection June 28, was listening to KOA-FM, Denver, in October when Cole told host Dave Logan how she had feigned mental illness to get out of jury duty, The Denver Post reported Thursday.
Cole, a published author and cosmetologist, claimed to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder when she appeared in Mansfield's courtroom.
The District Attorney's Office said Mansfield recognized Cole's story and reported her to authorities. Cole was charged Wednesday with felony counts of perjury and attempting to influence a public servant.
