A woman’s attempt to stay “forever young” has landed her a spot in jail.

Charity Anne Johnson was arrested Sunday after police say she has been posing as a high school student for months. The jig was up after the person she was staying with became suspicious. The jail records list Johnson as being a 31-year-old-woman, but the Associated Press reports her to be age 34.

Johnson was enrolled as a sophomore named “Charity Stevens,” at New Life Christian School in Longview. Staff at the school discovered her identification was fake on Tuesday.

Her guardian, Tamica Lincoln, said Johnson told her she was 15 and needed a place to stay because she was being abused by her father.
