PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Sentencing has been continued for a West Jordan woman accused of fraud after she accepted donations by falsely claiming she had cancer.

Tania Clark pleaded guilty to second-degree theft by deception and third-degree attempted theft by deception.

Clark told family and friends she was dying of a rare form of cancer, and needed 62-thousand dollars for a bone marrow transfusion. To back up her story, she produced a fake letter from a nonexistent doctor.

Clark's sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 12th at nine a-m.
