Ylen back in court Friday in fake cancer case

(SANDUSKY) -- A critical court hearing is resuming in Sanilac County where a Lexington woman is accused of faking cancer. A judge must decide whether there's enough evidence to send 38-year old Sara Ylen's case to trial. The hearing picks up again this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. The last witness Tuesday was a pastor whose church held a fundraiser for Ylen last summer. He said he received a letter from a University of Michigan doctor confirming Ylen had cancer, but investigators say it was forged. Ylen is charged with fraud, false pretenses and using a computer to commit a crime. She received $100,000 worth of care from a hospice agency, bills that were paid by her insurer. In St. Clair County, Ylen is awaiting trial on a charge of making a false report of rape. Authorities say Ylen falsely accused a man of rape last September and used makeup to create what looked like bruises. In November 2012, in a different case, a man convicted of raping Ylen was released from prison after nearly 10-years. New evidence showed Ylen had made false rape allegations that same year in California and the St. Clair County prosecutor's office dropped the case.
