    Woman withdraws no-contest plea on lottery claim

    Woman withdraws no-contest plea on lottery claim

    SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (AP) - A woman who claimed she lost a winning $162-million US Mega Millions lottery ticket withdrew her plea of no contest on a charge that she made up the story she had told police.

    Elecia Battle changed her plea to not guilty Thursday in South Euclid Municipal Court and will have a jury trial, authorities said Friday. Battle, 40, of Cleveland had entered the plea of no contest Jan. 15 to a charge of filing a false police report. The plea was not an admission of guilt but meant Battle would not fight the charge punishable by one to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

    Battle had been found guilty by Judge Patricia Ann Kleri after the no-contest plea was entered, and she was to have been sentenced next week. Now, with the plea withdrawn, a pretrial hearing would be scheduled for sometime in March, officials said.
