TEXAS – In a shocking case from Texas, a mother was arrested for pretending to be her 13-year-old daughter and going to her school for a day.
Casey Garcia, 30, dyed her hair and dressed up as a teenager with the intention of testing the security at her child’s school.
She took things a notch higher by documenting her every move. Garcia attended classes as Julie and even interacted with teachers and staff at Garcia-Enriquez Middle school.
The 6-minute video, which has now gone viral, shows Garcia wearing a yellow hoodie before actually walking the hallways of the school, attending classes, and even taking selfies in the toilet. She is seen wearing a facemask all the time.
Unfortunately for her, the elaborate plan didn’t end well as she was arrested for criminal trespassing and tampering with government records.
According to reports, she was later released on a $7,808 bond.
How did she get caught? Everything was going as per plan But during the final period of the day, a teacher noticed she wasn’t Julie.
Garcia put out another video in her defence and said she didn’t do the stunt for ‘likes’ or to cause any problems for the school.
“I didn’t do this to ruffle any feathers, I didn’t do this to out the school, because I was never going to say what school district or what school it was, they put that out there themselves,” she said.
“We need better security at our schools, this is what I tried to prove, and I don’t mean to be curt but I kind of feel like I proved it,” she added.
