ATLANTA, Ga. (WSB-TV) -- Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard confirms former Atlanta Public Schools human resources chief Millicent Few has agreed to plead guilty to a reduced charge in the APS cheating case.

Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne broke the story on Channel 2 Action News at Noon.

He says Few, who was Beverly Hall’s director of human resources from the beginning of ex-superintendent Hall’s tenure and a member of her executive cabinet, has agreed to cooperate with the prosecution.

Howard says she now becomes the prosecution’s most significant witness because she is the first person who will testify that she personally observed Hall commit a crime ordering the destruction of the Deerwood Academy internal investigation.

He says Few will receive probation and she has been cooperating for weeks. He says the state has been busy corroborating her statements before entering into the plea agreement.

He indicates he had no discussions thus far about Few’s disclosures with defense team for Hall, who has pled not guilty and whose lawyers have been vociferous about her innocence.

Winne spoke to Hall's attorney David Bailey who said, "we continue to maintain Dr. Hall's innocence." Bailey said he has not seen any plea deal involving Few, nor has Howard shared any information about such a thing with the defense team.
