Jurors in the Atlanta district's test-cheating case have begun deliberations in what is believed to be the longest and most complex academic-misconduct trial in U.S. history.

A dozen former Atlanta educators are accused of conspiring to inflate test scores to meet federal accountability requirements by changing answers or guiding students to fill in the correct responses on a 2009 state test. If convicted, the defendants could each face up to 20 years in jail.

The trial began in August and concluded last week.
