MUSKOGEE, OK -- A former Northeastern State University student has been indicted on federal charges of fraud and illegally using another person's identity.

Federal prosecutors say 32-year-old Emily Mae Crank of Muskogee is charged with two counts of financial aid fraud and unlawful use of a means of identification.

Crank is accused of using the university's computer system to get personal information about fellow students and faculty.

Prosecutors say she then used the information to get federal financial aid.

Crank faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on all three counts.
