NORTHWOOD – A woman has been charged with felonies in Worth county after a fake cancer claim and accepting donations to ease her fake suffering.

After a two month long investigation, the Worth County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jennifer Hope Mikesell on Friday December 20, 2019 on the charges of Ongoing Criminal Conduct, a class “B” Felony, Theft Second Degree, a Class “D” Felony, Fraudulent Practices, a class “D” Felony, and four counts of Forgery, all class “D” Felony’s. Jennifer Hope Mikesell claimed that she was diagnosed with cancer and was receiving cancer treatments at Mayo Health Systems in Rochester, Minnesota which was found to be untrue. Jennifer had received multiple donations of money, food, and other supplies. Jennifer also received a bedroom makeover from My Happy Haven in October of 2019. The investigation is still on going and there may be further charges.

The Worth County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by DCI, Albert Lea Police Department, Osage Police Department, and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Broward County Florida.

    This is very disturbing because he could affect people that are really sick and need the help. It is one of the lowest things someone can do.

They have you fighting amongst yourselves while the rob OUR America blind, right under all your noses. lol remember Trump years ago in an interview said if I ever ran for president, he’d run as a Republican… because he said Republicans are dumbest and easiest to fool. Ummmm hello people. Guess he was right because they keep backing this lying loser up. Every time he opens his mouth he embarrasses the United States!!!

          “Every time he opens his mouth he embarrasses the United States!!!” After the last president I don’t think that is possible. Between apologizing to half the planet and insulting the other half(including the American people), it just isn’t possible for true Americans to be more embarrassed than Obama made us.
          I know, the Democrats didn’t get embarrassed by their god, but everybody else DID. Hell, foreign friends of mine were embarrassed for me(because I had him as a president). They have said that Trump may be a loudmouth, but is a step up from Obama. These people are British.
