Ozarowski, who would plead for help outside supermarkets, “convinced store owners in this county and in Nassau to allow her to place donor jars in their place of business,” Spota said.Prosecutors also said that she established a PayPal account and a website that read, “Brittany Ozarowski – Help Save My Life.”“This was a despicable scam,” the district attorney said. “There was no cancer, no chemotherapy, no radiation, and no medical bills. There was just heroin.”“The truth is she is a 21 year old drug addict with four open narcotics cases, and we have strong evidence she forged doctors’ notes to avoid court appearances,” he added.A spokesman for the Nassau County district attorney’s office confirmed that investigators are also looking into whether the alleged scheme took place in Nassau.Spota will hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon displaying Ozarowski’s donor jar, shirts purchased by a store owner who held a fundraiser to support her and gift certificates donated by local business owners.

Nigeria international Ndidi was missing from Leicester’s squad for their League Cup semi-final first leg against Aston Villa on Wednesday. Rodgers said Ndidi suffered an injury in Tuesday’s training session and may face an operation, although he did not specify what the problem is. “Wilf took a knock in training yesterday, which unfortunately means he might need a slight operation tomorrow,” Rodgers said. “That’ll put him out for a few weeks, but it’s not overly serious, so hopefully, going into February, he’ll be fit and ready to go again.” If Ndidi misses the rest of the month, he will sit out five Leicester games, including their semi-final second leg at Villa on January 28.Tags: Brendan RodgersLeicesterWilfred Ndidi
