    A woman who attempted to work with the city of Nashua, New Hampshire, as a volunteer grant writer has pleaded guilty to identity fraud.

    Police said 43-year-old Dana Michelle Lawrence is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 28.

    According to court documents, in 2006, Lawrence was sentenced in Rhode Island to a year in jail for theft. She didn't follow terms of probation; a warrant was issued for her arrest.

    Police said last November, Lawrence, using the alias "Genevieve Kaplan," began working as a volunteer for the city of Nashua, preparing grant applications. In May, police and the FBI were told Kaplan tried to obtain routing numbers and account numbers for city bank accounts.

    An apartment lease application showed Kaplan used a first name of "Genna," and a Social Security number assigned to another person.
