College student gets probation for faking cancer

Tuesday, 04 June 2013 17:21 Published in Local News

KIRSKVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A former northeast Missouri college student who claimed she had terminal cancer has been sentenced to five years' probation for forgery.

KTVO-TV reports 23-year-old Victoria Marut, of St. Peters, must also do 100 hours of community service under the sentence imposed Monday in Adair County Circuit Court.

Marut was accused of fooling teachers and pupils at Kirksville schools during her internship as a Truman State University graduate student. Her shaved head and claim of having terminal non-Hodgkins lymphoma prompted an outpouring of cash and other assistance.

Marut pleaded guilty earlier to forging a doctor's signature.

For community service, Marut must speak in schools about the decisions she made and how they affected other people. She was also ordered to write letters of apology to students and teachers in Kirksville.

 

The victim of a fatal shooting in a north county neighborhood, has been identified.

Police say 17-year-old Tavelle Coleman was shot inside a Castlepoint home around 9:45 Monday night. There were seven other people in the house when the shooting happened.

The Castlepoint neighborhood is south of 270 just west of 367.
