INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A 29-year-old central Indiana woman accused of faking a nursing license faces four new charges related to the case.

Court documents show that Ashley Trent of McCordsville now faces a total of 20 charges in Hancock, Hamilton and Marion counties. Those charges include multiple counts of forgery, theft, unlicensed practice of nursing and identity deception.

Trent is accused of forging a nursing license and working as a nurse for Developmental Service Alternatives in Greenfield from late 2012 to early 2014. Court documents allege Trent created a fake document from the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, saying she couldn’t renew her license because of a computer glitch, instead of producing a renewed license.

Trent also is accused of forging letters from IU Health that claimed she had breast cancer.

Her attorney says Trent plans to plead not guilty to the charges.
