I need a dress for my uncle’s wedding and I need it by Friday! Any thoughts? College girl prices, please.
Please take the time to read. This is such a sad story and I fully agree with comentary located below the article.
An Ohio mother of two was sentenced to 10 days in jail and placed on three years probation after sending her kids to a school district in which they did not live. Kelly Williams-Bolar was sentenced by Judge Patricia Cosgrove on Tuesday and will begin serving her sentence immediately.
The jury deliberated for seven hours and the courtroom was packed as the sentence was handed down. She was convicted on two counts of tampering with court records after registering her two girls as living with Williams Bolar’s father when they actually lived with her. The family lived in the housing projects in Akron, Ohio, and the father’s address was in nearby Copley Township.
Additionally, Williams-Bolar’s father, Edward L. Williams, was charged with a fourth-degree felony of grand theft, in which he and his daughter are charged with defrauding the school system for two years of educational services for their girls. The court determined that sending their children to the wrong school was worth $30,500 in tuition.
Secondly, it’s interesting how courts find it convenient to make someone into an example when they happen to be poor and black. I’d love to see how they prosecute wealthy white women who commit the same offense. Oh, I forgot: Most wealthy white women don’t have to send their kids to the schools located near the projects.
This is quite a disgraceful act of so called “justice.” Why should a mother be jailed for wanting better educations for her daughters? The real crime is not that of Mrs. Williams-Bolar, but that of the racial divides in our education system. Not only does the system remain segregated, but virtually exclusive as well. When one thinks about how the mother even ended up in court is shady. Obviously someone found it suspicious that two black children were attending a predominantly white school.
What about the harsh actions of the judge? Prosecutors were fine with probation, however with the felony charge of simply ten days in jail, the mother is ineligible to teach in the state of Ohio. Which, she took on to improve the lives of her children.
This is absolutely disgusting and I’m more disturbed by the lack of outrage or leadership by civil rights group. Where is the NAACP? Where is the ACLU?
