Man charged in rape of Montgomery girl

Montgomery County police have charged a 20-year-old Virginia man who they say befriended a 12-year-old on the Internet, picked her up at her house on Christmas night and sexually assaulted her in a parking lot, according to court records.

Jose P. Claros of Herndon was charged with second-degree rape and second-degree sex offense, court papers say.

Family Services faces budget shortfall

The D.C. Child and Family Services Agency is facing a budget shortfall of as much as $10 million after it failed to meet a Jan. 1 deadline to resume billing Medicaid for many of the services that the agency delivers, according to people familiar with the agency's problems.

CFSA had stopped seeking Medicaid reimbursements because the agency was mishandling millions of dollars in claims, but CFSA managers were supposed to have solved the problems by the end of last year and reopened a critical pipeline of federal money.

In an e-mail Friday afternoon to CFSA staff, Director Roque Gerald said new guidelines from the federal government had delayed the agency's timetable for resuming claims to Medicaid.
