PHOENIX - Phoenix police say a 35-year-old Valley woman is under arrest after having sex with teenage boys.
Police spokesman Trent Crump said Jennifer Dempsey was arrested for several counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
Dempsey allegedly met her 14 and 16-year-old victims through Facebook. She told both teens she was 16 years old, pregnant and knew both victims' parents.
Police arrested Dempsey after finding incriminating text messages. After her arrest, Dempsey admitted she had sex with the older victim, but denied sexual activity with the younger.
Crump said while conducting a search warrant at Dempsey's home, police found evidence related to the crime.
Authorities said for the last five years Dempsey convinced her family she had cancer.
She shaved her head, bought wigs and detectives found a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.
Police leaned she did not have cancer, but used the claim to help avoid arrest The port was merely taped on her chest to look as though it was real.
Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Phoenix police at 602-534-2121 or Silent Witness at 948-6377.
