GOSHEN, N.Y. — An upstate New York woman who faked having cancer so donors would pay for her wedding and Caribbean honeymoon is being released after less than two months in jail.
Jessica Vega apologized Wednesday in Orange County Court for the scam. A prosecutor says she has paid back more than $13,000 to people she victimized.
The judge then sentenced her to time served. Vega was arrested April 3 and pleaded guilty to the scam three weeks later.
Her lawyer says she'll be released later Wednesday from the county jail.
Her ex-husband says Vega will live with his family.
Vega claimed in 2010 that she was dying of leukemia and wanted a "dream wedding" to Michael O'Connell, the father of her baby.
