So How Old Do You Think This Woman Is?


She's actually 34 years old! This Texas woman was arrested last week after it was revealed she successfully pretended to be a high school sophomore for an entire year. It's not clear why Charity Anne Johnson allegedly enrolled at the New Life Christian School in October as 15-year-old Charity Stevens. Tamica Lincoln, 30, told ABC News she had taken Johnson in after she claimed to have been an orphaned teen. "She acted like a kid. She did her homework. She got good report cards," said Lincoln, who met Johnson at their place of employ, McDonald's. "I allowed her to come into my house. I was just trying to be nice and kindhearted and get her out of the situation she was in." Principal Stuart Newlin was apparently fooled in part because Johnson claimed she'd been homeschooled and didn't have any school records. "Everyone we talked to assumed she was a teenager like she said she was, because she looked like one. She had friends," he said. "Everybody liked her." Johnson's story began to unravel when Lincoln got a phone call from a woman who ran a group for needy children that the suspect tried to join. Suspicious, Lincoln had their manager run a background check that revealed -- incorrectly -- that Johnson was 31. Johnson was charged with failure to show identification, and still is behind bars at Gregg County Jail on a $500 bond. What do you think, Would she have fooled you?
