ATLANTA —

A lawyer for two Atlanta teachers accused in one of the nation's largest test-cheating scandals says they are about to turn themselves in.

All 35 defendants named in an indictment are required to surrender at the Fulton County Jail by Tuesday.

Lawyer Gerald Griggs represents teachers Starlette Mitchell and Angela Williamson. He said they plan to surrender Monday morning.

A judge is expected to decide bond for all of the defendants, including former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Beverly Hall. It was unclear when Hall would turn herself in.

Hall faces charges including conspiracy, making false statements and theft. Prosecutors say some pay bonuses she received were tied to falsified scores on standardized tests. Hall's lawyers deny she had any involvement in cheating.
