She wore white on her wedding day, only to end up in an orange jump suit, charged with fraud. But on Wednesday the bride who lied about having terminal cancer was released from jail and hoping to start her life over.
Jessica Vega’s admitted lie lead dozens of unknowing people to give her thousands of dollars in wedding perks, including a free wedding dress and flowers.
“By pretending to have a terminal illness, Vega inexcusably took advantage of the community’s hearts and minds, and profited off of their generosity,” said Attorney General Schneiderman.
She got a $1,200 wedding dress for free, but now there are reports that 23-year-old Jessica Vega faked having a terminal illness to get a discounted wedding.
