— A woman accused of tricking Hispanics out of hundreds of dollars is in the Durham County jail.

Natalie Gonzalez was arrested last week in Georgia and returned to Durham for a court appearance Thursday. She ran a business called "Justice for the Peace."

Police say she pretended to be an attorney and charged clients without providing any services.

She is currently being held under a $5,000 bond.
