A woman who posed as an FBI agent and recruited her neighbors to do jobs as her assistants pleaded guilty in Alexandria, Virginia. Brenna Reilly told neighbors she was the FBI's director of forensics and two neighbors agreed to work for her. They did small tasks, including writing condolence letters to family members of agents killed in the line of duty. She was a fraud and the neighbors never got paid. The U.S. Attorney's office says its still unclear why Reilly conducted the hoax but now faces up to three years in prison.
