The DA who is prosecuting the Atlanta Public School cheating defendants is seeking a court order that would prevent defense attorneys from talking to the media. The defendants themselves already are prevented from talking about the criminal proceeding as a condition of their bond release.
Arraignments during which defendants will formally enter their please are scheduled for Friday. Most pleas are expected to be “not guilty.” Also on the docket for the day is a motion by Channel 2 Action News and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to remove the gag order from the defendants’ bond conditions.
