This public school counselor was convicted for soliciting sex from a minor, arrested again on a prostitution sting, and managed to keep his job the entire time
· Aug 22, 2022 ·

Well this appears to be nothing more than a colossal, catastrophic failure on the part of an inept school system:

A sex offender continued working for a major Virginia school district for months after he was convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution, state records show.

Fifty-year-old Darren Thornton began working for Glasgow Middle School in Virginia's Fairfax County in the fall of 2020 and continued working there not only after his arrest in November of that year for soliciting a minor for sex but even after his conviction for that crime in March of 2022.

Police in Chesterfield County, where the arrest took place, claimed that they notified the superintendent of the Fairfax school system at the time the arrest occurred.

You gotta love the police's understated reaction to Fairfax's utter incompetence:

Lewis told the news station that Thornton was actually arrested again in June in Chesterfield County "on a prostitution sting" and that police officers upon arresting him again were "surprised and a bit confused to learn Thornton was still working for Fairfax County Public Schools," as the network reported.

Police checking the school website and seeing this convicted sex offender still in the district's employ:

Well, at least the guy's been fired now...nearly two years after it all started.
