ATLANTA (AP) - One of the 11 educators convicted of racketeering in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating trial gave birth this weekend.

According to 11Alive.com (https://on.11alive.com/1IDvaoJ) Shani Robinson, who taught first grade at Dunbar Elementary School, went into labor Saturday morning and delivered a baby boy by the afternoon.

The website reports that Robinson’s pregnancy excluded her from hearing the verdict, which was reached Apr. 1, in person. She was represented in court by her attorney. Robinson was convicted of racketeering and making false statements. Prosecutors said she and fellow Dunbar teachers Pamela Cleveland and Diane Buckner-Webb, who were also convicted, changed wrong answers to correct ones on test documents.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter put off Robinson’s sentencing until August. The remaining 10 defendants are scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
