TX woman given life prison. Misleads Dickson man charged in killing

A Texas woman was sentenced to life in federal prison after admitting to deceiving a Dickson County man, her former boyfriend who was charged with killing her husband, according to the US attorney’s office.

Jennifer Faith, 49, of Dallas, entered a guilty plea as part of a scheme that included creating fake email accounts – and pretending to be her husband, James – to correspond with Dickson County resident Darrin Lopez, who is charged with homicide in the Oct 9, 2020 shooting death of James.

Faith was sentenced Tuesday by US District Judge Jane J. Boyle, who also ordered her to pay $6,500 in restitution to her late husband’s family to cover funeral expenses and a $250,000 fine.

In February 2021, prosecutors charged Faith with obstruction of justice. In September 2021, they added a charge of use of interstate commerce in the commission of murder-for-hire, an offense that carries a potential death sentence.
