ATLANTA (AP) - A lawyer for two teachers accused in Atlanta's school cheating scandal says they will turn themselves in Monday morning, and other suspects are expected to surrender soon.
The 35 defendants named in an indictment are required to surrender at the Fulton County Jail by Tuesday.
Lawyer Gerald Griggs, who represents teachers Starlette Mitchell and Angela Williamson, said they plan to surrender Monday morning.
A judge is expected to decide bond for all of the defendants, including former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Beverly Hall. It wasn't known early Monday when Hall might turn herself in to authorities.
Hall faces charges including conspiracy, making false statements and theft because prosecutors say some pay bonuses she received were tied to falsified scores on standardized tests. Hall's lawyers deny she had any involvement in cheating.
