A Dutchess County woman was arrested and charged with Criminal Impersonation.  

Part of the Dutchess County's Jail visitor procedure is that visitors must present identification when they arrived to visit an inmate.

On Aug. 30, a woman came to the jail to visit an inmate, and when she presented her identification it was determined to be someone else's and not hers.

Further investigation revealed that she is party to an active Order of Protection involving the inmate she was visiting, and would not have been allowed to visit them had she presented her true identity.

The 18-year old female of Pleasant Valley,  whose name is not being released at this time was arrested and charged with Criminal Impersonation second-degree.

She was released with appearance tickets returnable to the City of Poughkeepsie Court later next month.
