GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A Texas woman accused in North Dakota of stealing the identity of another person and using it to obtain student loans has pleaded guilty.

Ngwisang Anyangwe is charged in federal court with aggravated identify theft. She faces a maximum penalty of two years in prison.

Authorities say the 28-year-old Anyangwe used the stolen identity to defraud Sallie Mae out of $48,000 in student loans. She allegedly received three separate checks for $10,000 and one for $8,000.

Anyangwe was arrested in Houston last October.
