Meg Lanker-Simons to save taxpayers the cost of a trial; Defense Atty says she will change plea

Meg Lanker-Simons, the former University of Wyoming student in the middle of a controversy after being accused of posting a fake rape threat to herself on Facebook has decided to change her plea from not guilty, her attorney said.  The trial, which was set to begin next week, has been cancelled.
Vaughn Neubauer, Ms. Lanker-Simons defense attorney, worked out a plea deal with prosecutor Joshua Merseal.  Merseal told Judge Randall Arp, “It would be more of a mess than the expense warrants, if that makes sense to the court.”
The offense that Ms. Lanker-Simons is charged with, and to which up to this point she has steadfastly denied, is a charge of misdemeanor interfering with a peace officer, which stems from an investigation earlier this year by the University of Wyoming Police Department based off of a graphic possible rape threat made against Ms. Lanker-Simons, who is a liberal activist that has clashed with the University as well as others, most notably in 2010 by filing a lawsuit and forcing the University of Wyoming to allow domestic terrorist Bill Ayers to speak to students.  

“I want to hatefuck Meg Lanker Simons so hard. That chick runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its so hot and makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch.”

In the plea agreement which calls for Ms. Lanker-Simons to pay a fine but no jail time, she will change her plea from not guilty to nolo contendere.
