CHESTER SPRINGS, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A Chester County woman charged with faking her cancer diagnosis will go to trial.
Jessica Smith is accused of collecting more than $10,000 in online donations because of her alleged cancer diagnosis.

"She made people believe that she had a very serious cancer diagnosis. The fact is she didn't have it. She lied about that," said authorities in November.
She is also charged with impersonating a police officer in Delaware.
A date for Smith's trial has not yet been set.
