Punishment Fitting the Crime?
Kelly Williams-Bolar, an Ohio mother of two was sentenced to 10 days in jail and placed on three years probation, and felony charges, after using her fathers address in a school district 5 minutes away so that her kids could get a better education and be safer. Her father 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 to a school in a district in which they did not live.
Does the punishment fit the crime? We surely think not! Our legal system is in shambles! The irony in this whole thing is that the school district claims by her sending her childern to their school "illegally" that she was stealing tax payers dollars...tax payers dollars went to place this non threatening woman in jail! What ever happened to a fine? Community service? What do you all think? Watch the video below:

I agree with Y SUGARCOAT? Why could she not pay a fine or do community service which would help the community she "stole" from?! I am sure that the school district used many tax payers money putting her in jail and with the attorney fees that were used to take her to court. As the lady stated in the video...it is not about money it was about making an example out of her. A BLACK exampleReplyDelete
This is unreal...smh that is why we are the country that has the most people incarceratedReplyDelete
