PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — A Port Huron-area woman sent to prison after an extraordinary string of fraud soon will be released on parole. The Corrections Department says Sara Ylen probably will be released in early December after five years in custody.

Ylen had raised money by claiming she had cancer.
