Kelley Williams-Bolar, Ohio Mother, Convicted Of Felony For Lying To Get Kids Into Better School | HuffPost
Ohio mother of two Kelley Williams-Bolar was released from jail on Wednesday after serving nine days for falsifying records so that her two daughters could attend a better school.
Williams-Bolar was convicted by a jury of using her father’s address to claim residency status that would allow her children to attend a higher-performing suburban school.
While her sentence was light in terms of jail time, Williams-Bolar was put on probation for two years and ordered to complete 80 hours of community service. The conviction may threaten her ability to get the teaching license she was working on.
