Boston - A purported psychic who charged an elderly Massachusetts woman more than $3.5m for exorcisms and "spiritual cleansing" has pleaded guilty to evading taxes.

Federal prosecutors say 41-year-old Sally Ann Johnson of south Florida ran businesses that claimed to offer "psychic readings" and "spiritual cleansing and strengthening".

Between 2007 and 2014, prosecutors say a Martha's Vineyard woman paid Johnson more than $3.5m for services that claimed to rid the woman of demons.

Prosecutors say Johnson didn't report the income and tried to hide the money so she wouldn't have to pay taxes on it.

Johnson pleaded guilty in the federal court in Boston and has agreed to repay the woman. She's expected to be sentenced in January.
