She must have been pretty convincing, because prosecutors accused her of siphoning more than $300,000 from assorted victims, including $50,000 in cash and credit-card charges from a single man.
Cut to October 2011, when Marks was scheduled to go to trial. But the proceedings didn't go forward for reasons detailed in the following excerpt from our followup post:
Marks had been fitted with a GPS ankle monitor -- a device she allegedly said she couldn't wear due to health problems that were later shown to be bogus. Thanks to the gadget, authorities know she flitted around the area on Sunday, as if nothing was awry. But at 9:30 p.m., she checked herself into North Suburban Medical Center in Thornton. She was released around 3 a.m. the following morning, but two hours later, she headed to Rose Medical Center in Denver. Rose wasn't exactly the closest facility; prosecutors say she passed seven hospitals to get there. However, her attorney says Marks' doctor has admitting privileges there. She added that Marks was suffering from nausea, breathing difficulties and high-blood pressure that could have been caused by stress.While that court session didn't happen, the postponement only delayed the inevitable. That December, a jury reportedly found Marks guilty on fourteen counts of fraud and tax evasion, and in February 2012, she was sentenced to five years behind bars.
Even then, Marks says she was experiencing health problems.
