Cops: Indiana County woman tried to frame hubby for porn

CLYMER — State police have charged an Indiana County woman with putting child pornography on a computer in an unsuccessful effort to frame her estranged husband.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 42-year-old Meri Jane Woods, of Cherry Hill Township, who also doesn’t have a listed phone.

Troopers from Indiana say she started the investigation when she came to their barracks on Aug. 14 to report her husband sexually abused children and put images of same on their home computer. Police investigated and determined the images were put on the computer Aug. 11 but that Woods’ husband left the residence July 23.

Woods is charged with a felony count of sexual abuse of children for possessing a computer with the images on it, and 40 counts of lying about alleged abuse incidents involving her husband.
