Woman arrested and charged with online impersonation

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A woman is facing charges after allegedly posing as another woman online and soliciting sex as that person.

Laredo Police arrested 27-year-old Arisai De Guadalupe Rodriguez in the case.

Authorities received a call on December 26th from a woman stating that someone she knew had posted naked photos of someone claiming to be her and stating that she was willing to have sex in exchange for money.

The case was turned over to the Crimes Against Persons division who gathered enough evidence to secure an arrest warrant.

Rodriguez was charged with online impersonation and is being held on a $10,000 bond.

Texas law states that online impersonation is a crime in which a person commits an offense if the person, without obtaining the other person's consent and with the intent to harm, defraud, intimidate, or threaten any person, uses the name or persona of another person to post or send messages through a social networking site.
