DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Former DeKalb Schools Superintendent Crawford Lewis, who was sentenced to a year in prison on Monday, has been released from jail on a $5,000 bond.

On Monday, Lewis was sentenced for his involvement in a racketeering case.

Patricia Reid, former chief operating officer for the DeKalb County School District, was accused of steering multimillion-dollar projects toward her then-husband, Tony Pope.

Lewis agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction or hindering a law enforcement officer. He was arrested in 2010 and was originally charged with felony counts of theft by taking and racketeering.

Lewis was accused of knowingly approving the arrangement involving Pope.

As part of his plea agreement, Lewis testified against Pope and Reid.
