New indictment comes down against former DeKalb County superintendent

Posted: Updated:

A new indictment has come down against former DeKalb County Superintendent Crawford Lewis.

Prosecutors replaced the indictment against Lewis and his co-defendants with a new one to streamline the charges.

The original indictment, which was handed down in May 2010, was part of an ongoing criminal investigation into construction spending in the district office.

Lewis was indicted on six counts of racketeering, theft by a government employee, bribery and falsifying public documents.

Former schools chief operating officer Patricia Reid (a.k.a. Patricia Pope) was also indicted on seven counts of racketeering, along with Reid's former husband architect Anthony Pope.

Reid's former secretary Cointa Moody was also indicted.
