MILWAUKEE (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Wisconsin say a Milwaukee woman has been convicted of creating a false identity so she could exceed loan limits for graduate school.

Online court records say 43-year-old Shurone Y. Goodlow pleaded guilty to wire fraud and filing a false tax return. She faces a maximum penalty of 23 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

Prosecutors say Goodlow admitted using two identities and two Social Security numbers to apply for federal financial aid. They say she also falsified her income as a former teacher.

The criminal complaint says Nash was able to get about $65,500 in federal financial aid, and tax refunds of $27,250, to which she wasn’t entitled.

A message left with her defense attorney wasn’t immediately returned.

Goodlow is also known as Shurone Nash.
