Anon Comment:
This happens all the time with kids who are good at sports who want to play at a school with a better team. I never hear of those kids’ parents getting sent to jail.

Summit prosecutor releases statement in Kelley Williams-Bolar case

By Ed Meyer
Beacon Journal staff
POSTED: 01:50 p.m. EST, Jan 28, 2011
Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh defended her agency’s decision to bring multiple felony charges against an Akron mother in a school residency case.
Walsh, in a statement Friday, said Kelley Williams-Bolar was prosecuted ”because she repeatedly and willfully broke the law, as a jury of her peers unanimously affirmed in court.”
The statement was sent by e-mail to various media outlets 10 days after Williams-Bolar was sentenced to jail in the controversial case.
On Jan. 15, after seven hours of deliberations, a Summit County jury convicted Williams-Bolar, 40, on two felony counts of tampering with records in the process of enrolling her children in Copley-Fairlawn schools in August 2006.

Walsh’s statement, in its entirety, is as follows:
”While this case is truly an unfortunate situation, the fact remains that Kelley Williams-Bolar was prosecuted because she repeatedly and willfully broke the law, as a jury of her peers unanimously affirmed in court.
”Prior to prosecution, she had many options available that did not include breaking the law, including working with the Copley school district before the case reached a criminal felony level. There are many single mothers and families in similar situations who want the best for their children who are not breaking the law.
”In fact, dozens of other similar cases in recent years have been resolved at the parent level prior to prosecution because they either removed their children from the school district, paid tuition or moved into the school district.
”Ms. Williams-Bolar was the only case that could not be resolved at the parent level because she would not acknowledge that she did anything wrong and she refused to cooperate in any way.
”As such, this office had no choice but to take action against Ms. Williams-Bolar, in accordance with the law and on behalf of residents that choose to follow the rules.”
The statement said the agency will not pursue a retrial on the two deadlocked charges of grand theft that the jury faced in the joint trial of Williams-Bolar and her father, Edward Williams.
”Consistent with other cases we have tried, when a jury convicts on the higher charges, we dismiss the deadlocked charges,” Walsh said in the statement.
She added: ”The state intends to proceed with the charges against Edward Williams for grand theft, a felony of the fourth degree, and for tampering with records, a felony of the third degree.
”With respect to the grand theft, the indictment alleges that he did, with purpose to deprive the owner, State of Ohio/Department of Human Services and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, of benefits totaling: $36,023.87.
”With respect to the tampering with records, the indictment alleges that he knowingly falsified applications for medical and food assistance with the Department of Job and Family Services.”
Kerry M. O’Brien, the attorney for Williams-Bolar and her father, was not immediately available for comment.
