The final defendant in the Atlanta test-cheating case was sentenced last week to a year in prison. Former elementary teacher Shani Robinson will also spend four years on probation.

In April, jurors found 11 former educators guilty of conspiring to inflate test scores by changing answers or guiding students to fill in the correct responses on a 2009 state test.

Robinson was convicted of racketeering and false statements and writings, but her sentencing was delayed because she was pregnant. Her son was born just days after her conviction.
