While the recent years have shown some improvement in the economy, things are far from back to normal. As a result, many businesses are looking for ways to reduce basic costs in order to improve their bottom line.

Unfortunately, one company feels a man they hired to cut costs has cheated them out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. As a result, the Chicago area man has been accused of fraud.
Being a school bus driver has its challenges and stresses. In such a position, a single person has the responsibility of likely more than 30 students at a time on his or her shoulders. They must drive them home or to school safely while also monitoring and controlling their behavior on the bus -- oftentimes with no additional support personnel. However, one county in Illinois is claiming that one bus driver handled this stress in a unique, and illegal, manner. The driver now faces a DUI charge.
Prosecutors have a difficult job. When a crime happens, they are urged by a public demanding justice to bring about charges and secure a conviction.

After a shooting in Chicago, two men have now been charged with murder, along with other crimes.
