Woman, 34, went to school as teen

A 34-year-old woman posed as a teenager to enrol at a private Texas high school.

Longview police said that Charity Johnson was arrested after telling officers she was “Charite Stevens”.

She was being held in Gregg County Jail on $500 bond for allegedly giving false information to police.

Police had been called to a flat when the person Johnson was staying with said she no longer wanted her living there. Police gave her a trespass warning.

The principal at a small private school in East Texas says Johnson enrolled in October with a guardian and filled out paperwork indicating she was 15.

Police say she is 34, although jail records list her as 31.
