Fulton Daily Report: DeKalb Judge C.J. Becker to resign

From the Fulton Daily Report Online:

DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker issued a statement Monday defending her record in the DeKalb schools corruption case, in which last month she suddenly ordered new trials for two defendants convicted in the matter. Also in her statement, Becker confirmed she is the subject of a JQC investigation and that she plans to step down from the bench later this year to get married.

A flurry of filings, decisions and responses have occurred since the state Court of Appeals last month told Becker that she erred in sentencing former schools superintended Crawford Lewis to 12 months in prison, even though he made a plea deal for 12 months of probation.
