Cancer-Faking Delran Woman Sentenced

Lori Stilley, the Delran woman who faked cancer for money, attention, and psychological issues we’ll probably never understand, was sentenced to 500 hours of community service yesterday. She was also ordered to pay $11,000 back to her donors. The judge didn’t mince words in handing down the penalty.

I have never heard of such an outrageous thing,” he told Stilley, who sat impassively beside her lawyer. “I’m almost speechless. It’s despicable what you’ve done.”

He was especially miffed that she still insists to her family that she actually had cancer and pleaded guilty only to put the matter behind her. For a deep dive into the Stilley fraud, see Vicki Glembocki’s piece from the March issue of Philly Mag. [Inquirer]
