A 33-year-old Green Bay woman stole her daughter's identity to attend high school and join the cheerleading squad.
Wendy Brown now faces a felony identity theft charge after enrolling in Ashwaubenon High School as her 15-year-old daughter, who lives in Nevada with her mother.
According to the criminal complaint, Brown wanted to get her high school degree and become a cheerleader because she didn't have a childhood and wanted to regain the part of her life that she missed.
She even attended cheerleading practices before school started, received a cheerleader's locker and went to a students' only pool party at the cheerleading coach's house.
A high school employee, Kim Demeny, told police that the woman looked older than a student but had the demeanor of a high school girl so she didn't suspect anything until the $134.50 check Brown gave to the cheerleading coach for her uniform bounced.
They later found out that Brown's daughter was actually enrolled at a school in Nevada.
If convicted, she could face up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
