Woman due in court after falsely claiming a stranger threw acid in her face

Posted:

VANCOUVER, Wash. (WKOW) -- The Washington state woman who pretended a stranger threw acid in her face is due in court for her first public appearance since she held a hospital press conference almost a month ago with her head wrapped in bandages.

Bethany Storro of Vancouver is expected to plead not guilty to three theft charges on Wednesday.

Tony Golik, the Deputy Prosecutor, says Storro collected donations intended to help her with the facial burns she suffered from on Aug. 30. Police say she later confessed to putting drain cleaner on her face.

Her lawyer anticipates Storro will be released after a short appearance in Clark County Superior Court.

According to court records, Storro spent about $1,500 of the nearly $28,000 that was donated. Storro's parents have said the money will be returned.
