Her mother the cheerleader?

September 13, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A 33-year-old woman stole her daughter's identity to attend a high school in Green Bay, Wis., and join the cheerleading squad, according to a criminal complaint.

Wendy Brown faces a felony identity theft charge after enrolling as her 15-year-old daughter, who lives in Nevada with Brown's mother.

According to the complaint, Brown wanted to get her high school diploma and become a cheerleader because she wanted to regain a part of her life that she'd missed.

Brown allegedly attended cheerleading practices before school started and went to a pool party at the cheerleading coach's house.

A school liaison officer started investigating after Brown attended only one day of classes last week, the complaint says.
