Arrest Warrant Issued for Acid Attack Hoaxer Bethany Storro

In a statement to the media last week, Storro's parents issued an apology on behalf of their daughter, saying that Storro was "extremely sorry for the pain" she had caused.

"As any good parent would, we stood by our daughter when she told us these different scenarios," said Joe Neuwelt, Storro's father. "We stood by her, we believed her. Any good parent would do that."

"There was no reason to doubt her at all," Neuwelt said.

Tony Golik, a deputy prosecutor, told ABC affiliate KATU there is now a warrant for Storro's arrest, though it will not be carried out immediately because she is still in a local hospital.

He said prosecutors will seek higher-than-usual penalties because, as one court document put it, "the defendant committed the offense against a victim who was acting as a Good Samaritan."

Storro, who is partially deaf, has been married once before, but had no children. She was still on friendly terms with her ex-husband and her former mother-in-law initially came to her defense when rumors suggested the attack was a hoax.
