 Milkovich says he spoke with her state rep, Vernon Sykes, and the two plan to work together to help her realize “her dream of becoming a school teacher.”

However, as Judge Patricia Cosgrove noted during Williams-Bolar’s sentencing, records tampering is a felony that will be reported to the state Department of Education, which will prevent her from getting her license.
