Montco woman who faked cancer heading to prison for parole violation

    Alicia Tolton has earned herself another sentence.

    The Montgomery County woman pleaded guilty last year to stealing from friends and family members by faking cancer and setting up a foundation for herself.


    She found herself in deeper trouble when she harassed one of the women she’d already victimized by taking money from.

    So a judge yesterday sentenced Tolton to one and a half to five years in state prison after Tolton admitted she violated her parole by harassing the woman.
