Tony Pope, Patricia Reid re-arrested in corruption case | www.wsbtv.com

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — The two people at the center of the DeKalb County schools corruption case have been re-arrested.

In November, Judge Cynthia Becker overturned the convictions of Pat Reid and her ex-husband, Tony Pope, who were convicted in a DeKalb County school construction scandal last year.

Pope and Reid had been sentenced to serve several years in prison.

Prosecutors said Reid, the former district chief operating officer, helped steer more than $1 million in contracts to her then-husband, Pope. A judge had initially sentenced Reid to 15 years in prison and Pope to eight years.

Becker resigned from her position on Nov. 10.
