Convicted Atlanta schools educator Donald Bullock, a former test coordinator, accepted a plea deal from the district attorney’s office for his role in the APS test-cheating scandal.

At a sentencing hearing Tuesday, Bullock apologized for his involvement in the cheating scandal and admitted guilt.

As part of his plea deal, Bullock was sentenced to 5 years probation, 6 months of weekends in jail, a $5,000 fine and 1,500 hours of community service. He also waived the right to future appeals.

“I hope you’re able to help some people,” said Judge Jerry Baxter. “I think you will.”

“Thank you for accepting responsibility and relieving me of a harsh sentence for you,” Baxter added. “Anyway good luck.”
