A jury has found 11 of 12 defendants guilty in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating trial. Only former Dobbs Elementary School teacher Dessa Curb was found not-guilty on all counts.
The convictions included racketeering for allegedly cheating on standardized test. The verdicts were mixed for the lesser felonies, with some defendants being found not-guilty and some being found guilty. The verdict comes 7 years after an investigation by the Atlanta Journal Constitution revealed widespread cheating in the APS system.
