According to KREM-TV, Rachel Dolezal, now known as Nkechi Diallo, was booked into the Spokane County jail Monday on counts of first-degree theft by welfare fraud, making false verification and second-degree perjury.

Between Aug. 1, 2015, and Nov. 30, 2017, she obtained public assistance when she was not entitled to it, prosecutors contend.
Court documents claim she illegally received thousands in food and child care assistance while depositing nearly $84,000 into her bank account.
