• Defense says Indiana Co. woman 'victim' in porn framing case

    CLYMER, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A defense attorney said an Indiana County woman ordered to stand trial on charges she tried to frame her estranged husband on child pornography charges is the "victim" in the case and denies wrongdoing.

    According to Pennsylvania State Police, 42-year-old Meri Jane Woods claimed on Aug. 14 that her estranged husband sexually abused children and put related images on their home computer.

    But police determined the images were put on the computer Aug. 11, long after Woods' husband had left the residence July 23, under a protection from abuse order she obtained.

    Woods has waived her right to a preliminary hearing on child pornography and false report charges. Woods’ attorney, Christopher Welch, said his firm continues to investigate the incident and that, "She's the victim here."
