"The two judges, Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. and Michael T. Conahan, pleaded guilty in Federal District Court in Scranton, Pa., to wire fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States for taking more than $2.6 million in kickbacks to send teenagers to two privately run youth detention centers run by PA Child Care and a sister company, Western PA Child Care.
Their plea agreements call for sentences of more than seven years in prison.
As many as 5,000 juveniles are believed to have appeared before Judge Ciavarella while the kickback scheme was going on."
These assholes need to go to jail for a lot longer than 7 years. And how's our privatized prison system working out?
Mark A. Ciavarella Jr
Michael T. Conahan
Here they are. I wish they were here so I could pummel them with cans of soda in a pillowcase. Seriously, I'm not kidding.
