Woman Sentenced to 85 Days in Jail
Longview, OK — Charity Johnson, the 34-year-old woman that was caught pretending to be a 15-year-old high school student, has been sentenced to just 85 days in jail and ordered to pay a $215 fine. She, however, has already been released because of time already served.
She had already plead guilty to failure to identify herself after she attended New Life Christian School as a student for almost a full school year before administrators found out what her real age was.
During a recent interview with KTRK-TV, she said, “I guess you could say I was looking for love.”
She continued, “I’m just a normal person like any other normal person, trying to pursue her education, get her education and make it through life and be a better person.” She says her family had abandoned her, and that by acting like a child, people paid attention to her and loved her in ways they would not have if they knew her real age.
So why was her sentencing so light?
Well, investigators say that Johnson did not commit a serious crime nor did she pose any real danger with any of the high school children. Also, investigators say she got good grades and was a model student.
