Grand jury indicts 2 top DeKalb school officials
May 26, 2010 --

A DeKalb County grand jury today indicted former school Superintendent Crawford Lewis and Pat Reid, the district’s former chief operating officer, as well as her ex-husband, architect Tony Pope, and her secretary. The indictment alleges $80 million in fraudulently awarded construction contracts, tens of thousands of dollars in sports and theater tickets as bribes, and a taxpayer-funded stay in the Bahamas. The grand jury also charged, without elaboration, that Reid tried to blackmail Lewis.
