Ohio Mom Kelley Williams-Bolar Jailed for Sending Kids to Better School District

• ABC News (video)
An Ohio mother's attempt to provide her daughters with a better education has landed her behind bars. 

Kelley Williams-Bolar was convicted of lying about her residency to get her daughters into a better school district.

Williams-Bolar decided four years ago to send her daughters to a highly ranked school in neighboring Copley-Fairlawn School District.

But it wasn't her Akron district of residence, so her children were ineligible to attend school there, even though her father lived within the district's boundaries.
