If convicted, Jessica Vega could be sentenced to 1 1/3 to four years in state prison.

“By pretending to have a terminal illness, Vega inexcusably took advantage of the community’s hearts and minds, and profited off of their generosity,” State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said. “Our office will hold this individual accountable for fleecing the public through lies and deception.”

In the spring 2010, Vega claimed she had terminal cancer and had only a few months to live. She asked for a dream wedding and received wishes from a number of people and businesses, She was married in May 2010 and went to Aruba for her honeymoon with expenses paid by members of the community touched by her story.
