CACHE COUNTY, Utah — A Logan woman accused of manipulating a Cache County community into giving her thousands of dollars for a fake terminal illness pleaded guilty Tuesday.

Lesley Jensen, 26, was arrested on charges of fraud in December. Police say Jensen fooled the residents of Nibley into believing she had an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Jensen pleaded guilty to two second-degree felony charges of communications fraud and two third-degree felony charges of forgery.

Jensen will pay full restitution for settlement and faces sentencing on March 24.
