Texas woman, 31, posed as high school sophomore, authorities say

A 31-year-old Texas woman was arrested this week after authorities say she claimed to be a teenager and enrolled in a school as a sophomore.

KLTV, an ABC affiliate based in Tyler, Texas, reported that Charity Anne Johnson was charged with giving authorities a fake identification.

Police told the television station that Johnson enrolled at New Life Christian School last October, telling officials there she was a 15-year-old named Charity Stevens. She gave police the same alias before she was arrested Sunday, KLTV reported.

According to the station, officials at the east Texas school planned to send a letter home to parents Thursday.
