A reporter at KCBD will not face jail time after being arrested for attempted kidnapping.
Cecelia Jones was arrested when she took a camera inside two Amarillo hospitals to test their security. Saturday, the Potter County District Attorney held a press conference to announce they have reached an agreement with Jones and KCBD. The station agreed to write a letter of apology that will be published in the Amarillo newspaper. They also must pay $600 dollars to the city of Amarillo for the costs of responding to the incidents.
KCBD agreed to drop any civil claims as a result of Jones arrest. As part of the agreement authorities in Potter County will not file any charges against her. The station says they beleive their story was a beneficial test of security and they apologize to all who were affected negatively by it. District Attorney Randall Sims tells us that he is disappointed with KCBD's letter of apology, saying he beleives it lacks sincerity.
