Former WABC/Channel Weather Anchor Heidi Jones Sentenced to Community Service

Heidi Jones has now learned her fate.

The WABC/Channel 7 forecaster who lost her job after lying to police about being attacked, is facing 350 hours of community service.

“I just want to take a moment to express my sincere and profound apology to all who were involved — most importantly to the police department,” Jones said in court.

In December 2010, Jones told police a Hispanic man attacked her while jogging in CentralPark.
