YORK, Neb. (AP) - A Milford woman has made a plea deal and been convicted in a perjury case.

The York News-Times says (https://bit.ly/1phzA8H ) Betsy Smith pleaded no contest earlier this week to attempted perjury. Prosecutors had lowered the charge in exchange for her plea. Her sentencing is scheduled for May 12.

Prosecutors say Smith had sought a protection order against a York man, saying he was going “to slit her throat.” She later acknowledged under oath that the man had never threatened to hurt her.

Prosecutors also say Smith lied in a deposition for a criminal case and provided police with false information so they’d start a criminal investigation.
