Board rejects pardon in Ohio faked-address case
Board rejects pardon for Ohio woman who falsified address to enroll kids in suburban district
By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' The Ohio Parole Board has recommended that the governor not pardon a woman who falsified records so her daughters could attend a suburban school outside their urban district.

Kelley Williams-Bolar, a single mother from Akron, served nine days in jail after using her father's address to enroll her children in the neighboring district.

Prosecutors say Williams-Bolar willingly broke the law by using the address and misrepresenting other information on school documents for Copley-Fairlawn district.

Williams-Bolar says safety was her main concern when she enrolled her daughters there.

The case drew national attention as an example of schools getting tougher on parents who improperly send their children to other districts, usually with better-funded and higher-performing schools.
