Woman Who Lied About Cancer To Avoid Prison Faces Sentencing

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut woman who admitted lying about having
cancer to avoid reporting to prison on a fraud conviction is facing sentencing.

Thirty-seven-year-old Aliyah Davis, of East Windsor, is scheduled to be
sentenced Monday in federal court in New Haven. She pleaded guilty to several
crimes in December.

Davis was sentenced to more than four years in prison in December 2014 for a
scheme that defrauded Mass Mutual.

Prosecutors said Davis was granted postponements of her prison report day by
lying that she had terminal cancer. Authorities said she also changed her name
to Aliyah Davis from Theresa Sutherland and went on to commit unemployment
compensation fraud.

Davis’ lawyer says a fair sentence would be adding 12 to 18 months of prison
time to the four years she received in 2014.
