New Jersey: Woman arrested for getting admission in school by falsifying documents. A young woman named Hyejeong Shin made fake documents and got into the school’s student list last week. The incident took place at New Brunswick High School. They sat in the class for four days pretending to be children. But later the school authorities identified the girl. The school authorities said that the police are investigating the incident. The issue came to light during a school meeting held on Tuesday.
“Last week, an elderly woman presented false documents to the school and attended classes and spent time with the school’s counselor. When Hyejeong Shin’s age was revealed, the police were notified,” said Aubrey Johnson, superintendent of the school.
They were arrested by the New Brunswick police for producing an underage birth certificate to prove that they are school students. The students said that they used to send text messages to many children in the class asking them to cut the class and go out. And they behaved strangely with the children. All this led to further suspicion.
New Jersey law allows children to be admitted without a parent if sufficient documentation is presented. The police said that similar incidents have happened before. Brian McKinnon, 30, gained admission to the school by pretending to be 17 years old. The identity of Brian McKinnon, who attended the school for a year, was revealed by the media to the outside world. It gained worldwide attention and a documentary was released about the incident.
