An Omaha woman pleaded guilty to giving a false name to police officers Tuesday in Washington County District Court.

Neoshon M. Avant, 29, was charged with criminal impersonation, subsequent offense, a Class 4 felony. She is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 25.

According to court documents, Blair police arrested Avant on June 27 following a traffic stop of a blue Hyundai Tiburon for expired plates. Avant gave the name Ashlon M. Wilson and said she had left her driver's license in a purse she did not have with her.

On July 29, an officer received information from the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) that Wilson was actually Avant. During the course of a human trafficking investigation in Sarpy County, Avant was arrested on several charges and provided the name Ashlon Wilson to troopers. However, Wilson was also arrested during the investigation.

The NSP investigator indicated Avant and Wilson were in a relationship and live together.

Blair police reviewed a photo of Avant's driver's license and confirmed her identity.
