LONGVIEW, TX (KETK/NBC) - After months of lying and 29 days in jail, the charade is over for 34-year-old Charity Johnson.

Johnson was arrested in May for providing a fake I.D. to police after posing as a high school sophomore for almost an entire school year. Tuesday morning she plead guilty to the charge for the fake I.D. and was released from jail.

"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 said in an exclusive interview with KETK.

Johnson says the reason for all her lies is simple.

"I guess you can say I was looking for love."
