The Marietta Daily Journal reports this morning that a Cobb County grand jury has indicted Jessica Colotl on a charge of making a false statement.
Colotl, brought here by her illegal immigrant parents as a child and now a student at Kennesaw State University, became a focal point of debate last year after a traffic stop revealed her own undocumented status.
Says the MDJ:
The felony charge stems from statements made to Cobb Sheriff’s deputies when she was booked in at Cobb Jail for driving without a license. During the book-in, she gave her address as an apartment in Duluth, though she did not live there, sheriff’s officials contend. They also insist the telephone number she gave the deputies was false.
District Attorney Pat Head said his office presented the charge for indictment “because we believe the evidence was sufficient to present to a grand jury.”
Head, though, did not personally present the case to the grand jury.
