Longview Woman Arrested After Posing As 15-Year Old Student

LONGVIEW, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - Officials at a private school in east Texas were shocked to find out that a sophomore student was actually a grown woman.

New Life Christian School was alerted this week that 15-year-old student Charity Stevens was actually 34-year old Charity Anne Johnson.

Her age came to light when she refused to leave the home of a lady who'd been helping her, and had even enrolled her at the local private school in October last year.

Longview Police Spokeswoman Deborah Stiles said Johnson gave officers the name "Charity Stevens", the same alias Johnson used to enroll at New Life Christian School.
