ATLANTA (AP) -- A judge plans to resentence three former Atlanta public school educators who got the stiffest sentences after they were convicted in a conspiracy to inflate student scores on standardized tests.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter's case manager confirmed Tuesday that the judge will resentence Tamara Cotman, Sharon Davis-Williams and Michael Pitts on April 30. No further information was available.

The three former district regional directors were the highest-ranking of the 11 ex-educators convicted of racketeering this month. Their sentences of seven years in prison followed by 13 years on probation are more than double what prosecutors recommended.

Teresa Mann, a lawyer for Davis-Williams, said she received notification that the judge intends to modify her client's sentence but declined to comment further.

Lawyers for the other two didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
