ATLANTA — An attorney for one of the former Atlanta Public Schools educators convicted in a test-cheating trial says a new group supporting them launches this week.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1IcTAUO ) says Gerald Griggs offered few details beyond a website named "FreeOurTeachersNow.com" at a church on Sunday.

He says the organization will focus on changing "the minds and the hearts" of Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter and District Attorney Paul Howard.

Baxter plans to resentence three of the former educators who got the stiffest sentences on Thursday.
