BLACK CLERGY PRESS CONFERENCE--Apr. 2, 2013 Atlanta: The Concerned Black Clergy held a press conference Tuesday at the Fulton County Jail concerning the APS indictments.

Some of the 35 educators indicted in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal turned themselves in to authorities Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2013. The APS employees reported to the Fulton County Jail after an indictment issued Friday accused them of participating in a scheme to falsify students' standardized test scores. The defendants may be released from jail if they post bond amounts, which reach as high as $7.5 million. Those who want their bonds reduced may ask a superior court judge for a bond modification hearing, said Fulton County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan. Defense attorneys believed their clients could turn themselves in at any time as long as they met the deadline. But a spokeswoman for Fulton District Attorney Paul Howard said the defendants were to surrender "on Tuesday" and not before. JOHN SPINK / JSPINK@AJC.COM
