PHOENIX -- A Phoenix woman accused of engaging in sex acts with teenage boys has admitted to the allegations.

Jennifer Dempsey entered a guilty plea Friday to molestation of a child, attempted sexual conduct with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 22.

Dempsey was arrested back in February after it was discovered that she had been portraying herself online as a 16-year-old pregnant girl.

Authorities said Dempsey would contact boys between the ages of 14 and 16 through Facebook and then meet them for sex acts.

Dempsey also convinced her family that she had cancer for five years. She reportedly shaved her head, bought wigs, and had a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.

According to police, she tried to use her cancer claim to avoid arrest.
