Brittany Ozarowski, of Miller Place, pleaded guilty in December 2013 to grand larceny, forgery and other charges.
A Long Island woman has admitted she was hooked on heroin when she raised thousands of dollars by falsely claiming she had cancer, prosecutors and her attorney said Wednesday.
Brittany Ozarowski’s bruised arms were covered by the green jail jumpsuit she wore in court Thursday. She stood motionless and handcuffed as she pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.
Under the heading “Help Save My Life,” prosecutors said Brittany Ozarowski posted pictures of herself sitting in a wheelchair on a website saying she had “few options left.”
