PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix woman accused of engaging in sex acts with teenage boys will be sentenced later this month.
Maricopa County Superior Court records show 36-year-old Jennifer Dempsey's sentencing has been scheduled for Dec. 20.
Dempsey pleaded guilty in September to molestation of a child, attempted sexual conduct with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor.
She was accused of contacting 14-year-old to 16-year-old boys online and then meeting them for sex acts. Phoenix police say she allegedly portrayed herself to at least two victims as a 16-year-old pregnant girl.
Police also say Dempsey convinced her family that she had cancer for the past five years to avoid arrest.
She allegedly shaved her head, bought wigs and had a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.
