I spoke with Mrs. Ophelia Averitt, President, Akron Unit, NAACP:
"The NAACP worked hard with the judge to bring about fairness, and to bring about these 10 days (sentence). Ms. Williams-Bolar is supposed to do her community service with the NAACP."
Mrs. Averitt stated she was in court herself, working with judge, to get the least amount of time.
"The judge wanted a misdemeanor as did the NAACP."
Mrs. Averitt further stated, "The judge is a beautiful person."
