SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman will spend 90 days in jail after faking having cancer and accepting money raised to help her.

The 38-year-old Michelle Mundy on Tuesday was also sentenced to two years of probation and was ordered to pay back nearly $6,000 she received in donations.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/18SBFmg ) reports Mundy in court said she didn't fake being ill because she wanted money. Instead, she said, she was "searching for affection."

Mundy pleaded guilty to a theft charge. Her attorney didn't return a request for comment.

Mundy's false cancer claims began to unravel when her co-workers attempted to visit her at the hospital where she was allegedly receiving treatment, but she was not there. Mundy resigned the next day and turned herself in to authorities a month later.
