D. A. Selects cheating cases he won't pursue | News
ALBANY, GA- He won't name names, or even say how many cases there are, but Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards has separated a number of teacher cases that he will not bring CRCT cheating charges against.
He will turn these cases over to the Dougherty Co. School System and to the Professional Standard Commission, who can pursue sanctions on their own, but they won't go to court.
Edwards said that he sees no criminal intent in the actions of the teachers. Though they may have tried to prompt students to pick another answer, they did not change the answer sheets on their own.
The school has a May 15th deadline to either offer faculty a new contract or inform them that they won't be offered one. If a teacher is offered a new contract, the school system will have difficulty sanctioning that teacher in the CRCT cheating scandal later.
