SURPRISES IN SCHRENKO CASE
The much-publicized trial of Georgia school Superintendent Linda Schrenko took an unexpected turn when she accepted a plea deal. Her former Deputy Merle Temple, who allegedly aided with the misdirection of federal funds to Schrenko's failed campaign for governor and who had been cooperating with federal prosecutors against Schrenko and other co-defendants, was also surprised when he was arrested for obstruction of justice. Trial expert Ronald L. Carlson said, "The developments between Temple and Schrenko will continue to haunt the prosecutors through the end of this case."
