"I think this is something that spiraled out of control and got bigger than she expected. Once you commit a falsehood as big as she did, it's kind of hard to go back on," Detective Robert Appleby of the Lower Swatara Police Department told ABC News.

Leslie's lawyer Terrence McGowan claimed his client was clinically depressed , but he added that he did not know what plea to enter on her behalf. Leslie is due to be arraigned on August 5.
