A Chinese woman was indicted in Chicago for allegedly providing false documents to more than 2,600 student-visa holders who wanted to illegally extend their stays in the U.S. beyond graduation day for as long as six years.

Weiyun, or “Kelly,” Huang was charged with conspiracy and fraud for supplying bogus employment records, financial statements and tax documents, according to a federal indictment unsealed Friday. She has been in custody since her arrest in California in March, the U.S. attorney in Chicago, John R. Lausch Jr., said in a statement.
