Clearwater, Florida -- The executive director of Pinellas Head Start, Juanita Heinzen, entered a no contest plea following her arrest for filing a false police report.
Heinzen, a target of a 10 News investigation, was in circuit court Monday. The judge withheld adjudication following Heinzen's plea.
As we initially explained, Heinzen told Largo police a van had been stolen from an agency Head Start funds when, in fact, Heinzen knew her fiancé, who was also working as a contractor for that agency, had the van.
Heinzen was put on temporary leave after the arrest. However, the agency and the attorney for the agency denied that ever happened and insisted she wasn't arrested.
