Eleven of the 12 defendants in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating trial have been found guilty, according to a report from CBS 46. Only Dessa Curb, a former teacher at Dobbs Elementary School, was declared not guilty on all counts.
All of these educators have been accused of racketeering, in addition to charges ranging from theft by taking to making false statements. Unlike 21 others, these 12 educators did not take plea deals.
A total of 35 educators were indicted in March of 2013. Prosecutors said they conspired to cheat or concealed cheating to boost test scores for financial gain.
The case, which grabbed national headlines, stemmed from a 2009 investigation that revealed system wide cheating on the Criterion Referenced Competency Test.
