Delran woman pleads guilty to fake cancer scheme
DELRAN, N.J. - May 13, 2013 (WPVI) -- A southern New Jersey woman who scammed relatives and others out of cash, meals and even a wedding by falsely claiming she had bladder cancer will likely escape a jail sentence.
Burlington County prosecutors say 41-year-old Lori Stilley of Delran pleaded guilty Monday to theft by deception.
A plea bargain calls for Stilley to receive four years probation when she's sentenced July 26. She also will have to pay restitution ranging from $15,000 to $20,000 and perform at least 100 hours of community service.
She also will have to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
In February 2011, Stilley told those close to her and posted on Facebook that she had been diagnosed with cancer. But months later, Stilley posted she was feeling better and believed a miracle was coming.
