To summarize: An Ohio woman used her father's address to enroll her children in school. The district hired a private investigator who videotaped the woman driving for her home in Akron to the bus stop near her father's house. At the time, they were living in subsidized housing provided the local Housing Authority. She also submitted free and reduced lunch forms.
She used her father's address from 2006 - 2008. Her attorney submitted W-2s from her employer from 2008 and 2009, and a letter from 2005 from the school, that were all sent to her father's address.
She face up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 for this.
What do you think? Is the penalty a bit harsh? Should the district have gone to the trouble to get felony charges brought against her?
