(CNN) -- A man who pleaded guilty to perpetrating a hoax by saying his 6-year-old son was drifting over Colorado in a balloon began his jail sentence Monday.
Richard Heene turned himself in Monday morning at the Larimer County Detention Center in Fort Collins, Colorado, said Dean Karges, a detention services specialist at the jail.
Heene pleaded guilty in November to a felony count of attempting to influence a public servant.
Can't believe they charged him with a felony and only gave him 90 days.
