A California woman who pretended to have a firefighter husband battling the Holy Hell wildfire in order to collect money has been sentenced to nearly six months in jail.

Ashley Bemis, 28, was arrested in December 2018 after police said she posted on Facebook that her partner, Shane Goodman, was battling the blaze to dupe people into sending cash.

Police were able to confirm that the wedding planner from San Clemente, who is also said to have faked at least three pregnancies, was not married to a firefighter and Goodman didn’t even exist.

On Monday, Bemis was sentenced to 177 days in county jail.
