PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman accused of engaging in sex acts with teenage boys has pleaded not guilty.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 35-year-old Jennifer Dempsey entered her plea Monday. Her next scheduled court date is April 10.

Dempsey was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of several counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

Phoenix police say Dempsey allegedly portrayed herself online to at least two victims as a 16-year-old pregnant girl.

She's accused of contacting 14-year-old to 16-year-old boys through Facebook and then meeting them for sex acts.

They also say Dempsey convinced her family that she had cancer for the past five years.

She allegedly shaved her head, bought wigs and had a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.

Police say Dempsey used the cancer claim to avoid arrest.
