A former Southern California woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for framing her husband's ex-girlfriend, portraying her as a stalker who made death threats and set up a bizarre "rape fantasy" scheme.

Angela Diaz of Phoenix pleaded guilty Tuesday to felonies including kidnapping, false imprisonment and forgery. The Orange County Register reports she was sentenced immediately afterward.

Prosecutors say Diaz ran an ad on Craigslist steering men to her Anaheim, home for consensual "rape fantasy" sex and claimed one man tried to rape her. She also allegedly faked a pregnancy and cancer and claimed the ex-girlfriend threatened to kill her.

The ex, Michelle Hadley of Ontario, California, was arrested and jailed for months before authorities say they discovered Diaz was behind everything. Charges against Hadley were dropped.
