MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Martinsburg woman has pleaded guilty to falsifying documents after she fell behind on her mortgage payments.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld says 35-year-old Amanda Bishop faces up to five years in prison and a maximum $250,000 fine.

Bishop pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one count of false declaration before court.

Ihlenfeld says an FBI investigation found that Bishop created and submitted fake bank statements during court proceedings. The statements falsely showed that Bishop had made more than $1,800 in mortgage payments in November 2010 and December 2010.
