Court Dates Set For Atlanta Test Cheating Suspects

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A judge has set May court dates for defendants in Atlanta’s school cheating scandal.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter has asked lawyers who represent multiple defendants to appear before him on May 2.

Officials say the purpose of the hearing is to consider whether the attorneys have possible conflicts of interest.

The following day, Baxter has scheduled arraignments, when defendants are expected to enter formal pleas.

A Fulton County grand jury last month indicted former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Beverly Hall, three area superintendents, six testing coordinators, six principals, 14 teachers and others in a racketeering conspiracy. The defendants are also charged with making false statements and writings, influencing witnesses and theft by taking.
