Second Chances for Peeping at students and Fraud

Montgomery County Public Schools and the Montgomery County Inspector General's office were all about second chances this week.

If you are convicted for peeping through an interior window at students in a locker room you can stay employed with Montgomery County Public Schools.
...Despite a troubled trajectory of deviant sexual misconduct, ABC 7 News has learned Greenberg is still employed by MCPS. Following his November 2013 arrest, administrators quietly moved the janitor to the Shady Grove school bus depot along the 16600 block of Crabbs Branch Way in Derwood. In fact, his name, job title and email address are posted on the school district's website...

And, if you are convicted of fraud you can get a job working for the Montgomery County Inspector General's office investigating potential fraud.

Ondrik, who declined to comment and referred questions to Blansitt, pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge and received a year’s probation, a $20,000 fine and 60 hours of community service. She has paid the fine and is in the process of completing the service hours.
But even as he issued the lighter sentence, Messitte was critical of prosecutors for reducing the scope of the time fraud charge.
“Is it serious that government officials who are responsible for integrity in government, including monitoring fraud themselves, commit fraud? Of course it is,” Messitte said in a court transcript. “When you are in fact someone who is charged with, as they say, monitoring the hen house, you can’t start abusing the chickens.”
As Montgomery County Council President George Leventhal said in The Washington Post article above:

 “We believe in second chances”
