    FOXNews.com - Baltimore Cracks Down on City Employees Getting Paid While in Jail

    And I'm sure the union is fighting this... Unbelievable.

    "Charged" with a crime? That's quite different than being convicted of a crime.

    I wonder if this quote is correct. I wonder if the executive order requires employees to report convictions, rather than merely being charged. A charge is nothing more than an accusation which may or may not be sustainable in a court of law. Cases are routinely overfiled by prosecutors, hoping for a quick disposition or compromise jury verdict which will get them what they wanted in the first place.

    I would hope the quote is incorrect, and that if they are required to report anything, it is limited to convictions.

    No because the paedophile should be dead and unable to speak or do anything and certainly not be working with anyone who has children.

    I agree with George, being charged with a crime and being convicted of a crime are two entirely different things.

    That wasn't the question.

    I don't know about the "dead" part, but I agree with you that no pedophile should ever be allowed to work with children (I think that's what you meant, right? I mean, what's the problem about a pedophile working with anyone who HAS children, so long as the pedophile isn't anywhere near the CHILD or CHILDREN?)

    But child molestation is a charge that is very easy to make and very hard to defend. A child says something his parents pick up on. The police are called in. The child is immediately questioned by a "skilled" child molestation detective, who makes up his/her mind before the actual conversation with the child ever begins, that the suspect is guilty. The rest is totally predictable - and the poor defendant could easily be totally innocent.

    No, I think this is PRECISELY "the question" in the scenario presented by the OP.

    They shouldn't be allowed to work with anyone with children unless they have informed co workers of their sexual perversions.Would you like to befriend a paedophile and introduce them to your children or discuss your family with a paedophile?Not working with children is a given.Dead is about right.

    Maybe a better answer would be.No you shouldn't tell your boss you are a paedophile unless it is true because it wouldn't be funny as a joke.

    Need to know means need to know.

    Also, usually, there is a requirement that persons convicted of crimes not be around kids anyway. So reporting back to work would be a probation violation.
