WABC weatherperson Heidi Jones entered a not guilty plea today to misdemeanor charges that she falsely told police a "Hispanic man" tried to rape her in Central Park. But according to the criminal complaint, she's already confessed her guilt.

Jones didn't say anything in court, but it might not matter too much:

"I did make this up. I made it up for attention. I have so much stress at work, with my personal life and with my family. I know there is no justification for it," Jones told cops Dec. 13, according to the court papers.

We're somewhat unclear on this "not guilty" strategy.
