Trial delayed in Greenville reading program case

Chicot Memorial

A Georgia businesswoman accused of bribing a former Greenville Superintendent has had her trial moved until the summer. Trial for 66-year-old Edna Goble was to begin next week, but a defense request for more time to prepare has been approved. The trial is now set for July 22nd. Goble is accused providing kickbacks to former Superintendent Harvey Franklin for signing Greenville schools up for a reading program that critics called overpriced and ineffective. Franklin allegedly received cashier’s checks from the reading program that were used on auto loans, home improvement and college tuition for his children. He pleaded guilty last year and has not yet been sentenced.
