A Mexican national is facing charges after Texas authorities say she stole someone’s identity and used it to vote. 

A Montgomery County Grand Jury indicted Laura Janeth Garza with voter impersonation and ineligible voting.

According to the Texas Attorney General’s Office, Garza obtained documents to steal the identity of a u-s citizen.

They say she illegally registered to vote in Harris County and actually voted in three elections.

If convicted, Garza faces up to 20-years in prison and a  $10,000 fine.

She is scheduled to be in court this Thursday.
