FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – The family at the center of the balloon boy hoax has moved out of the house where the fateful trip began, leaving Colorado for Florida.

Richard and Mayumi Heene and their three boys have moved to Bradenton, Fla., where Richard Heene will continue working in construction.

Richard Heene pleaded guilty to a felony count of attempting to influence a public servant and served a 30 day jail term. Mayumi Heene pleaded guilty to filing a false report and served 20 a day jail term.



Larimer County and state officials say the Heenes’ probation has been transferred to Florida. The terms of their probation include making regular monthly payments toward $48,000 in restitution.
