PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman accused of engaging in sex acts with teenage boys has changed her plea to guilty in the case.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 35-year-old Jennifer Dempsey pleaded guilty Friday to molestation of a child, attempted sexual conduct with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor.

She's scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 22.

Dempsey was arrested in February. She was accused of contacting 14-year-old to 16-year-old boys online and then meeting them for sex acts.

Phoenix police say Dempsey allegedly portrayed herself to at least two victims as a 16-year-old pregnant girl.

They also say Dempsey convinced her family that she had cancer for the past five years to avoid arrest.

She allegedly shaved her head, bought wigs and had a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.
