VANCOUVER, Wash. – A prosecutor in Washington state says a woman who falsely claimed a stranger threw acid in her face will appear in court Wednesday.
Bethany Storro, of Vancouver, is charged with second-degree theft, accused of accepting donations after claiming a woman had splashed her with acid on Aug. 30. Police say she later admitted putting drain cleaner on her face.
Court records indicate Storro has spent about $1,500 of the nearly $28,000 donated to her.
Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Tony Golik says the accounts containing donated money have been frozen. Storro's parents have said all money will be returned.
The prosecutor says her scheduled court appearance will be a combined arraignment and preliminary hearing.
