Police have pinpointed her in multiple crimes including identity theft, fraud, forgery and even for stealing a house. Police say she forged ownership documents and a title for an abandoned property.

Willis has ties to at least ten other known criminals across the metro, most accused of theft and property crime. She also faces an open count of child abuse for allegedly forcing her kids to live in an abandoned home.

Willis pleaded guilty to ten felony charges back in November. Her sentencing is set for 1:30 p.m. this afternoon.
