GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4)- A woman who faked having cancer and stealing donations has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Jennifer Stover claimed she had uterine cancer and solicited donations for treatment and other expenses. She was convicted of taking more than $30,000 from donors who wanted to help her.

She worked for Exempla Healthcare at the Collier Hospice Center between January 2010 and April 2011. Stover resigned when her employer began to question her time off requests, which she stated were for cancer treatments.

She also worked at the Hospice of St. John on an “as needed” basis.

A Jefferson County judge sentenced Stover on Thursday.
