Charity Johnson, who previously went under the false name of Charite Stevens, has been sentenced to jail for 85 days for failing to identify herself, according to the Associated Press.
Johnson, 34 years old, was arrested in May after posing as a teenager and enrolling as a sophomore in New Life Christian School in Longview, Texas.
The ruse was exposed after her guardian, Tamica Lincoln, suspected something was amiss. Lincoln claimed that Johnson said she was a 15-year-old orphan and victim of child abuse.
“I sympathized with her, and invited her into my home. I took her in as a child, did her hair, got her clothes and shoes,” Lincoln told KLTV in May.
