    October 31, 2012 No comments

    The president of the Avon School Board faces a Class A misdemeanor for removing political signs from private property and returning them to their owner.

    According to a probable cause affidavit from the Avon Police Department, a homeowner reported a political sign missing from her yard late last week. The homeowner referred police to the Facebook page of Kim Woodward’s re-election campaign for school board president. On the profile Woodward admitted to removing three signs that had been made by Michael McGuire referencing a “spouse abuser” who’s employed by the Avon Community School Corporation.

    Woodward wrote, “I have taken the signs down and I have put them in Mr. McGuire’s yard,” adding she weighed them down with a rock so they wouldn’t blow away.

    The “spouse abuser” in question does work for the school corporation and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge involving a physical altercation he had with a woman who was living with him. Woodward wrote that while she doesn’t condone his actions, he poses no threat to students or fellow employees in the school corporation.

    She also wrote that McGuire crossed the line with these signs because he put the employee’s name on them.

    A Class A misdemeanor carries penalties of up to a year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.
