Parole board hears Ohio school residency case
Ohio Parole Board holds clemency hearing for Akron mom jailed in school residency case
By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' An attorney for an Ohio woman jailed after using her father's address to enroll her children in a different school district tells the Ohio Parole Board the Akron mom made mistakes.

But lawyer David Singleton said during Wednesday's clemency hearing that client Kelley Williams-Bolar switched her daughters to a suburban school because she worried about their safety after her home was broken into.

Williams-Bolar served nine days in jail. Singleton says the conviction threatens her efforts to earn a teacher's license.

Prosecutors defend the decision to bring felony charges, saying Williams-Bolar willingly broke the law.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) requested the parole board proceeding.

Based on the hearing and other evidence, the panel will recommend to the governor whether to pardon Williams-Bolar. Kasich will have the final say.
