Prosecutors tells parole board Ohio mom who lied to switch districts had pattern of deception
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) ' An Ohio prosecutor tells a state parole board that an Akron mother showed a pattern of deception when she falsified documents to enroll her children in a neighboring school district.
Summit County assistant prosecutor Brad Gessner is urging the Ohio Parole Board not to recommend a gubernatorial pardon for Kelley Williams-Bolar.
Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) requested the parole board proceeding and will have the final say.
Williams-Bolar spent nine days in jail after a jury convicted her of felony records tampering to enroll her daughters in the Copley-Fairlawn schools from 2006 to 2008. She says the conviction could interfere with her plans to become a teacher.
Gessner says Williams-Bolar had options when the school questioned her about her residency, but instead changed her address on other documents.
