A salon owner accused of putting thousands of dollars in bogus charges on celebrity credit cards has agreed to plead guilty to fraud. Court documents show 51-year-old Maria Hasehemipour, owner of Chez Gabriela Studio, could face up to 10 years in prison. She could also be fined up to $250,000 and be forced to pay her clients back.

Hasehemipour was arrested in August. An affidavit shows actress Liv Tyler had more than $200,000 in fake charges posted on her credit cards.

The salon's website claims Cher, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Aniston were also clients.
