Erie, Pennsylvania (WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — A local TV reporter accused of making false reports of stalking was in court for a preliminary hearing Thursday.
Pennsylvania State Police charged Haley Potter with a list of crimes, including two felonies on July 11.
After an hours-long hearing, a District Judge dismissed the felony charges and one of the 10 misdemeanors filed against Potter.
The other nine misdemeanors — including theft by unlawful taking, identity theft, and false reports — were bound over for trial.
Investigators testified flowers and a hotel reservation, that Potter claims a stalker paid for, were traced back to her bank account and cell phone history.
