KHQ.com - A 34-year-old woman who posed as a teenager to enroll as a sophomore at a high school in Texas has been sentenced. 

Charity Johnson was sentenced to 85 days in jail as part of a plea agreement. Johnson was arrested back in May after a woman who allowed Johnson to stay at her apartment called the police when she found out Johnson was not a teenager. 

The high school said Johnson enrolled last October with a guardian and told them she was 15 years old. 

“She came in with a guardian; there was no reason to be suspicious,” Principal Stuart Newlin told ABC News back in May. “Usually, parents come in, they fill out the paperwork and we take their word for it. If they come from another school, you transfer records. If they come from home school, they don’t have those records.”

A judge on Tuesday sentenced Johnson to 85 days, with credit given for time served. She is now out of jail.
