Ylen will also have to pay $121,000 to Blue Cross Blue Shield in restitution. Ylen claimed to have multiple myeloma and received $100,000 in hospice care. She also collected $10,000 from a church fundraiser, the website reported.
This is not the first time Ylen has been in the public eye.
James Grissom served 15 years in prison after he was convicted of raping Ylen, but the conviction later was thrown out, the Daily Mail reported. Police in California said that Ylen had made up rape allegations during a 2001 visit to the area, information that had not been available during Grissom's trial.
