Nicolette Bell is a 26 year old Navy Veteran and Mother from Dayton, OH. Nicolette had no prior criminal record and aside from being a upstanding citizen she was a very well loved Manager at a local glass company, Nursing student she was on the deans list and would have graduated in May with her BA, and she attended Phillips Temple in Trotwood, OH. Unfortunately, Nicolette had everything stripped from her on 1/6/17 when she was sentenced to 4 years for fighting. Nicolette, her brother, and her mom visited the McDonald's on Colonel Glenn Highway in Greene County, a area that is known for not being very fond of African Americans. After getting their food, Nicolette noticed that her sandwich was covered in saliva. The fact that Nicolette's brother had a disagreement with one of the Mcdonald's workers Sara, days prior made it apparent to the family why their food had been tampered with. The family confronted Sara about this but instead of receiving customer service they received disrespect and laughter. The family demanded a refund but was told no. Nicolette and Sara exchanged unpleasant words and then the argument got physical. Nicolette was charged with Felony Assault, Misdemeanor Assault , and Abduction (because the fight went from one area of the Mcdonald's to another). Although violence is not the answer to any disagreement the fact that 2 people were involved but only one was arrested is just one of the minor issues in this case. The whole situation could have been prevented if 1. Sara had not spat on their food 2. If the family was issued the refund that they requested instead of being disrespected. Nicolette is no criminal, she does not deserve to be incarcerated for 4 years missing out on time with her son Robert. Robert will be 6 the 25th of January he has chronic asthma and short stature HE NEEDS HIS MOMMY! Nicolette's friends and family are asking for signatures and also letters to be sent to Judge Michael A. Buckwalter at 45. N Detroit St. Xenia, OH 45385 Letters can also be faxed to 937-562-5142 requesting a lighter sentence. Thank You! #Petition4Nicolette
