The woman who was busted for posing as a 15-year-old teenager at a Texas high school will serve 85 days in jail for the crime.

Thirty-four-year-old Charity Anne Johnson was taken in by a co-worker and enrolled in New Life Christian High School after she told the woman that her parents had died. After keeping up the act for a while, a counselor looked into her story and realized it was a hoax.

Johnson’s lie began to unravel after Osarieme Obaseki, who runs Dallas-based What About Us, a non-profit that helps women and girls, and whom Johnson told she was a 14, began to suspect that Johnson was older than she said she was.

Johnson will also pay a $277 fine after pleading guilty to failure to identify. She has already spent a month behind bars over the incident.

The woman never explained why she posed as a teenager, but we’re glad this whole bizarre incident has reached its conclusion.
