Milford Woman Admits to Lying about Man's Threats

A Milford woman has made a plea deal and was convicted in a perjury case. Betsy Smith pleaded no contest, and will be sentenced May 12. Prosecutors say Smith had sought a protection order against a York man, saying he was going "to slit her throat." She later acknowledged under oath that the man had never threatened to hurt her. Prosecutors also say Smith lied in a deposition for a criminal case and provided police with false information so they'd start a criminal investigation.
