Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.

they should have gone after the DA that brought the charges up. these kinds of things don't just happen by the hand of only one person.

Yep here we go - a story that epitomizes the corruption in the judicial system right now. Classic example of how money talks in this country. If any of these kids came from a family with money or wasa "friend of a friend" they wouldn't see a second of these punishments. A lot of businesses will prey on the young and naive if allowed the opportunity

this kind of corruption is the norm in almost all of our society ... yet people don't do anything about it.

If we could just start with the voter fraud. put these people in jail like they were dope smokers!

Then we could successfully change our corrupt system.
