New York investigators have charged a white lady who in May blamed a Black man for compromising her life in New York’s Central Park with documenting a bogus police report, Manhattan’s lead prosecutor said on Monday.

The head prosecutor Cy Vance said Amy Cooper, 41, faces an Oct. 14 arraignment over the episode, which was caught on a video that became a web sensation and ignited a national discussion about “white benefit.”
“We are emphatically dedicated to considering culprits of this direct responsible,” Vance said in an announcement.

Documenting a bogus report is a crime deserving of as long as one year in prison.
Cooper had been strolling her canine on May 25 of every a region of Central Park known as the Ramble when she experienced Christian Cooper, an eager flying creature watcher not identified with her.
Christian Cooper has said he requested that her chain her pooch, and when she declined offered the canine treats.
Amy Cooper was appeared in the video saying she would tell the police “there’s an African-American man undermining my life,” which was bogus, and telling a 911 administrator that Christian Cooper was compromising her and her pooch, alluding to him twice as “African-American.”
The video has more than 44.7 million perspectives on Twitter.
The occurrence happened a couple of hours before the demise of George Floyd in Minneapolis, where a cop stuck his neck to the ground with a knee, ignited across the nation dissents over racial bad form. After video of the Central Park episode became famous online, Cooper was terminated from her position at the Franklin Templeton resource director, and she freely apologized.

In an announcement on Monday, Cooper’s legal advisor Robert Barnes said she would be seen not as liable, and blamed a “race to judgment” by some about the case.
“She lost her employment, her home, and her open life. Presently some interest her opportunity?” Barnes said. “What number of lives would we say we will obliterate over misconstrued 60-second recordings via web-based networking media?”
