SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - A Clark County woman who faked cancer in an effort to collect fund raising money for her own uses was ordered to pay back her victims and spend 90 days in the Clark County Jail.
A judge also ordered Michelle Mundy to serve two years probation and cover court costs.
Mundy pleaded guilty to faking Lymphoma to receive nearly $6,000 in cash earlier this month.
In a tearful statement to the judge, Mundy said she didn't initially fake the illness for the money but rather for the attention.
"First of all I want to apologize to my family and friends and this community. I also have never been so ashamed of my actions in my life. It's very out of character for me. I also want you to know that this was never about the money. It was not about trying to steal money. It was about a woman who was searching for affection and validation and made some really poor choices and bad decisions along the way. I just want to do what's right and make this right and start over," Mundy said.
Mundy lost her nursing license and works as a waitress to make ends meet.
If Mundy violates the terms of her probation she’ll be ordered to spend a year in prison.
