    ATLANTA - A third principal has plead guilty in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal Friday.

    Dr. Lucious Brown, a former principal at Kennedy Middle School, plead guilty to one count of felony interference with government property. That charge was related to him changing answers on CRCT tests in 2009.

    Brown had been facing 30 years in prison, but with the plea, the judge accepted the recommended sentence by Fulton County District Attorney of two years' probation, $1,000 in restitution for bonus money he received and 1,000 hours of community service.

    Brown's plea brings the total number of educator pleas to 18 in the APS cheating scandal.
