Why did a woman named Kelley Williams Bolar go to jail for lying about her residency to get her child in a better neighborhood school?

This woman lied about living in a certain district to get her child into a school in a safer neighborhood and a better education. I’m seriously confused as to why she got a 5 year prison sentence. I know that it is illegal but I thought the highest consequences was just expelling the child from the school. 5 years... show more This woman lied about living in a certain district to get her child into a school in a safer neighborhood and a better education.
