A week after the Balloon took off believed to hold Falcon Heene, the mother did come clean. It turns out that that the two of the parents Richard Heene & Mayumi Heene had been planing this hoax for two weeks before the show they put on. They told there children to stay quit about the whole thing. The reason for the investigation was when young Falcon Heene said on CNN “You had said we did this for a show.” This lead the police to the fact that this may have been a hoax, and so there guts paid off in this case.
Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden has said he will recommend charges against the Heenes including conspiracy, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, making a false report to authorities, and attempting to influence a public servant. The most serious charges are felonies and carry a maximum sentence of six years in prison.
These charges are vary serious since they both took acting school, so other charges could be made. When young Falcon had believed to be in the space craft looking balloon, the authorities took the family vary serious. The cost of the total search and rescue has not been said, but the authorities have decided that the Heene’s will have to pay the full price of the money it took.

The sheriff’s deputies questioned both the parents separately on October 17 2009, just twodays after the flight of what believed to be Falcon Heene. Mayumi Heene told authorities “she and Richard had lied to the authorities on October 15 2009 (on the day the flight took place)” according to the affidavit. She also said “that the release of the flying saucer was intentional as a hoax…. The motive for the fabricated story was to make the Heene family more marketable for future media interest,”.
The Father Richard Heene has denied it as a hoax. His lawyer, David Lane, said Friday he is waiting to see the evidence in the case. The family has appeared many times on the television, which gave them the thought of doing so. They have also appeared on Wife Swap.
The sheriff’s officials of the case declined to comment on Friday.
The items taken among the family’s house hold by the authorities include: Video cameras, computers, hard drives, a few pictures of the flying saucer, receipts, papers, a phone with an address book and a flight itinerary. The list that the police have did not identify the passenger or the destination/date of travel.
