041515 aps sentencing kdj09

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter ordered former Atlanta Public Schools principal Dana Evans to serve one year in prison for her role in the test-cheating scandal.

Baxter also ordered Evans to serve 1,000 hours of community service.

Evans’ sentence was less than others who did not take a deal for a lesser sentence from Fulton County prosecutors. On Monday, Baxter called her a “wonderful educator” but said Tuesday she was aware of cheating.
