NEWARK, Ohio (WTVN) --A Utica woman who claimed her son had cancer and solicited donations in his name was sentenced to 18 months in prison Tuesday and ordered to pay restitution.

Emily Creno pleaded no contest to charges of child endangering and theft.

While Creno's attorney had planned to have her plead not guilty by reason of insanity, she was found competent to stand trial after a court-ordered evaluation.
