Headlines: Teen Charged in Wreck, Schools Hire Felons, Small Businesses Struggle and Bank Robber Arrested
Under the cloud of "personnel matters," Fairfax County school district officials have been trying to get rid of seven convicted felons on the payroll.

An article in The Washington Posthas led to the revelation that six other employees were also hired with felony convictions. The district has responded with a statement after the report.
