What is the World's Most Forgivable Crime?

 6/15/23 Toronto Sun:

A 28-year-old woman is accused of posing as a 17-year-old student to enroll at a Louisiana high school to learn English, authorities said.

Martha Jessenia Gutierrez-Serrano and her mother, Marta Elizeth Serrano-Alvarado, 46, were each charged this week with one count of injuring public records, the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

“She was in school, she minded her own business, she did her schoolwork, she caused no trouble,” Sheriff Greg Champagne said, reports ABC News. “She wanted to learn English.”

The mother is accused of using a fake Honduran passport and birth certificate to enroll her daughter in Hahnville High School in Boutte, 40 km west of New Orleans, during the 2022-23 school year.

There seems to be no accusation of being here unlawfully.

I am still trying to get my head around "injuring public records."  Do they scream?  Do they go to the ER?
