31 Year Old Woman Arrested For Posing as 15 Year Old High School Student For Almost a Year

Posted in: , ,

Charity Johnson, a 31-year-old woman was arrested for posing as a Texas high school student for almost an entire year. Answering the name Charite Stevens, the woman claimed she was an orphaned 15-year-old girl before a family gave her a place to live and helped her enroll in a Texas high school.

Police said Charity Johnson — who was attending classes at New Life Christian School in Longview since October — was collared on Sunday, after her adoptive family became suspicious of her identity, KLTV reported.

Below is Charity Johnson as she looked while living as a 15year old.

Johnson told her kind hearted guardian she was abused by her biological father who then passed away soon after her mother died.

“I sympathized with her and invited her into my home,” Tamica Lincoln, who became Johnson’s guardian, told the news station. “I took her in as a child, did her hair, got her clothes and shoes.”

Lincoln, who maintained relationships with Charite’s teachers, said she recently became curious of the 10th-grader’s identity and called police. Investigators soon determined that Johnson used a fake name and birthday to enroll at the school. The woman even had a bogus Facebook account, Lincoln said.

Johnson was ordered held at Gregg County Jail in lieu of $500 bond after she was arraigned on several charges that included giving false, fictitious information, authorities said.
