What others have said about Hon. Patricia A. Cosgrove



Comment #: OH232
The ACLU website recounts Judge Patricia Cosgrove sentencing Kelley Williams-Bolar to 2 five-year prison sentences for Bolar using her child's father's address to enroll the girl in a better school. Cosgrove charged Kelley-Williams Bolar with 2 third degree felonies for attempting to give her daughter a better education.

Bolar was a 40-year-old teaching assistant for children with special needs. Bolar is also African American. Of course. Cosgrove appears to be white. She is also clearly a vindictive, stupid woman who should be stripped of judgeship and disbarred.

Strong, honest and responsible. Gives every issue due consideration. A future "hall of famer."
