A woman called to take the stand in the recent trial of a Santa Maria gang member is behind bars for perjury. Diana Perez Escobedo was called to the stand as a defense witness last month, and testified on behalf of Jesus Quevedo. Santa Maria police officials say Escobedo intentionally made false statements during her testimony. Escobedo was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail Thursday on $25,000 bail.
