JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

She was in front of a judge on Monday.  She should have been there sooner.

Jasmine Eaton was officially charged Monday in Craighead County District Court with a felony warrant for failing to appear.  

The warrant comes from Eaton missing an earlier court date relating to a false report she filed almost three years ago.

According to court documents, on May 22, 2014, Eaton and her sister claimed they saw two Hispanic men abduct a white juvenile girl. Police searched the area of Tony Street and Stallings Lane but could find no evidence to back up what Eaton and her younger sister had told them.  

A probable cause affidavit filed at Eaton’s initial court appearance in 2014 said the statement she gave police at that time was not true.  Eaton said she was only relaying what her sister told her.

Both Eaton and her juvenile sister were arrested for filing a false report.

District Judge Tommy Fowler gave Eaton a $2,500 bond.  She bonded out Monday after her court hearing.  She’s due back in court on April 20.
