040215 APS verdicts kdj29

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter sentenced former Atlanta Public Schools teacher Diane Buckner-Webb to one year in prison for her role in the test-cheating scandal.

Baxter also sentenced her to 1,000 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine.

“She was a part of it,” Baxter said of her role in cheating.

Buckner-Webb’s attorney, Keith Adams, argued she cared about the children and she didn’t deserve prison.
