• Boston principal under criminal investigation


    BOSTON (AP) - The acting principal of a Boston high school has been placed on administrative leave after school officials found he's under investigation for his alleged role in a multi-state credit fraud ring.

    A spokesman for Boston public schools tells The Boston Globe (http://b.globe.com/TOQsH8) that Queon Jackson was placed on leave from his position Madison Park Vocational Technical High School on Wednesday.

    School officials placed the 39-year-old Jackson on leave as soon as they learned he has been under investigation by the U.S. Secret Service in allegedly fraudulently obtaining credit and then not paying the bills.

    Jackson could not be reached for comment.
