  • Cancer-faker gets prison time

  • Judge Pamela Svoboda sentenced Jennifer Dempsey to 17 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised probation with sex offender terms. According to Phoenix police, Dempsey, 35, lied about her age to teenage boys she had sex with, then lied about being pregnant, and for the past five years, she's been lying about having cancer. Detectives discovered that Dempsey had met a pair of teenage boys -- ages 14 and 16 -- on Facebook, and eventually had sex with them.
