11Alive News is reporting that the death of Cointa Moody could jeopardize the Lewis/Pope school corruption trial.
DEKALB COUNTY, GA – A funeral at a Lilburn church marked the passing of Cointa Moody on Tuesday.
According to the medical examiner, the former school system employee died of natural causes.
Now there’s a question about whether her death could jeopardize one of DeKalb County’s biggest open corruption cases.
“I remember when I was a prosecutor, unfortunately there were cases that had to be dismissed because the state’s key witness was no longer available to provide testimony in the trial,” former DeKalb County District Attorney J. Tom Morgan told 11 Alive News.
Morgan now represents architect Tony Pope, who was indicted along with three others on bribery and corruption charges in 2010.
