AKRON, Ohio - The Akron mother, who was sentenced to 10 days in the Summit County Jail for felony tampering with records, said she's planning to appeal her guilty verdict.
Kelley Williams-Bolar, 40, spoke exclusively with NewsChannel5 reporter Bob Jones from inside the jail on Thursday morning.
Judge Patricia Cosgrove could have sent Williams-Bolar to a state prison for up to 10 years. Instead, the judge opted for local jail time, two years community control and 80 hours of community service.
Still, Williams-Bolar said she was shocked when she was ordered to spend time behind bars.
"I did expect probation. I did not expect to be here," said Williams Bolar, who was dressed in a gray and white jail jumpsuit during the interview.
