Christopher Paul Summers, 31, was arraigned in October before Judge Michael McNally at the 33rd District Court in Woodhaven. His bond was set at ten percent of $150,000.

Summers is charged with six counts of uttering and publishing, three counts of possession of a financial transaction device, one count of identity theft and one count of obtaining money under false pretenses.

Trenton police said Summers allegedly used his grandmother's identity to acquire about $38,000, from Sept. 2011 through May 2012, through the use of credit cards and checks.

If convicted on all counts, Summers could spend the rest of his life in prison.
