KC woman pleads guilty in national adoption-fraud case

From Matt Campbell:

A Kansas City woman on Monday admitted her role in scamming 14 couples across the country in a scheme in which she pretended to be pregnant with twins and willing to let others adopt them.

Roxanne Janel Jones, 35, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Kansas to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud as well as aggravated identity theft. She could be sentenced to up to 22 years in prison.

CBS News had a really good investigative piece on Jones here.
