SIUE student, former soccer player charged with selling fake IDs
A former SIUE women’s soccer player has been arrested and suspended from the university for making and selling fake IDs.
Junior Peyton Roehnelt, of Metamora, Illinois, was a midfielder/forward on the soccer team, but she was dismissed from the team last month after one of her teammates was arrested for a DUI in Kansas with a fake ID allegedly created by Roehnelt.
According to The Telegraph, the investigation found that she sold around 30 fake IDs over the past year. Detectives also found equipment to make the IDs in her Evergreen Hall room.
Doug Mcllhagga, executive director of Marketing and Communications, and Director of Athletics Brad Hewitt both said the university refrains from commenting on situations like these until the judicial process is completed.
Roehnelt was released after turning herself in Friday, but has been suspended from SIUE grounds for an unspecified amount of time. She was charged with one count of Manufacturing Fraudulent ID Card and one count of Possession of Fraudulent ID Card, and her bond has been set to $50,000, according to The Telegraph.
