Powers first lied to police, saying Hering was hurt in a climbing accident in Eldorado Canyon State Park.

After some time out of contact with friends and family Hering reconnected with his parents and began plans to get a psychiatric exam and turn himself in to authorities. However, in November 2008 Hering was with his father when he was arrested in Washington state.

Hering was also discharged. In October 2009 Hering pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of false reporting in Boulder County and avoided jail time as part of his plea deal.
