McLane ends spring as GSU's #1 quarterback

ATLANTA-As Georgia State concluded spring practice with a final scrimmage Friday morning, redshirt freshman Ben McLane emerged as the Panthers number one quarterback.

McLane, from Snellville, Ga., has been running with the first offense the last two weeks, moving in front of junior returnees Kelton Hill and Bo Schlechter. A former state championship winner at Brookwood High School, McLane overtook the two veterans, who combined to start nine of GSU's 11 games in 2011, with consistency and accuracy.

"Ben was the most consistent quarterback and the most accurate quarterback this spring," said offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach John Bond. "Day-in and day-out, he did a good job completing passes and managing the offense.

"In the offseason, he needs to continue to work hard on his game and he needs to continue to study the offense - all the things he's been doing that have allowed him to play beyond his years."

Charter schools dominate Ga. education debate

Charter schools dominate Ga. education debate

ATLANTA -- State lawmakers spent the legislative session focusing on a fraction of the students in Georgia -- those at a handful of charter schools created by a now-defunct commission.

The aim was to pass a constitutional amendment to address a nearly year-old ruling by the state Supreme Court that outlawed the Georgia Charter Schools Commission, which approved 16 schools before it was disbanded in May.

The proposal dominated much of the legislative session, stealing the spotlight from other priorities, including tax and criminal justice reform and the state budget.

Appeals court upholds ex-doctor's sex conviction

Appeals court upholds ex-doctor's sex conviction

ATLANTA -- A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction and prison sentence of a former emergency room physician who was sentenced to more than 26 years in prison on child pornography and sexual misconduct charges.

Dr. Adam Lebowitz's attorney argued that much of the evidence prosecutors used against him was tainted because his client was unaware that the victim was 15 years old.

But on Thursday the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the argument. The three-judge panel ruled that Lebowitz failed to demonstrate the sentence was "substantively unreasonable."

Lebowitz was arrested in 2006 after a woman reported that the doctor had sent messages with sexual content to her 15-year-old son, and authorities said he tried to take the boy to his home in Decatur.
