A Bucks County woman who faked having terminal cancer has reached an agreement to pay nearly $50,000 in restitution and penalties. Danielle Kunkel, of Newtown, collected more than $36,000 in charitable donations after falsely claiming to have an aggressive form of lymphoma, according to the state Attorney General's Office. The office said Thursday that it had reached a settlement with Kunkel, who was never diagnosed with the cancer. Kunkel collected the funds after claiming that she faced more than $1 million in medical expenses and needed to travel to Germany for treatment, prompting her family and friends to hold a range of fund-raising events, authorities said.

The now-18-year-old girl, her babies fathered by this man who considered her his "wife," and an additional nine girls suspected to be her younger siblings have ended their captivity and can begin the long process of healing.
