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.
Attorney Gerald Griggs represents former APS educator Angela Williamson. She was sentenced to 5 years in prison with 2 to serve. I talked to Griggs about his reaction to word that some sentences might be modified.
