Sources Say APS Judge To Modify Sentences: You Have To Follow The Will Of The People

April 30th is when reports indicate that Fulton County Judge Jerry Baxter will re-sentence some of the Atlanta Public School cheating trial defendants. Expectations are that the harshest sentences will be modified. The three former administrators, Tamara Cotman, Michael Pitts, and Sharon Davis-Williams, were sentenced to 20 years in prison with 7 years to serve. Their sentences are expected to be lessened.
