Page Pate Interviewed about Atlanta Public Schools Cheating Trials

Page Pate was recently interviewed on WABE FM 90.1, Atlanta’s public radio station and NPR affiliate, by Rose Scott. Rose asked Page about the recent acquittal of Tamara Cotman, and how that verdict may affect the other cases set for trial next year it the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal. Page believes that the Cotman verdict was a very bad sign for the prosecution, and predicts that any more losses at trial may be politically difficult for the current District Attorney. Page also discussed the problems in presenting the case, and wonders why the District Attorney turned a cheating investigation into a complicated and difficult to prove racketeering indictment.

Page is the legal analyst for WABE, and is often asked for his opinions on current cases and legal issues in the news.
