Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan shut down a county-run juvenile detention center and accepted $2.8 million in illegal payments from the builder and co-owner of two for-profit lockups.




Two Pennsylvania judges who orchestrated a scheme to send children to for-profit jails in exchange for kickbacks were ordered to pay more than $200 million to hundreds who fell victim to their crimes.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Conner awarded $106 million in compensatory damages and $100 million in punitive damages to nearly 300 people in a long-running civil suit against the judges, writing the plaintiffs are “the tragic human casualties of a scandal of epic proportions.”

Mark Ciavarella and another judge, Michael Conahan, shut down a county-run juvenile detention center and accepted $2.8 million in illegal payments from the builder and co-owner of two for-profit lockups. Ciavarella, who presided over juvenile court, pushed a zero-tolerance policy that guaranteed large numbers of kids would be sent to PA Child Care and its sister facility, Western PA Child Care.
Unlike cons, when there are bad folks on our side, we expose and oppose!
I sigh in your general direction.

Very rare hardly. This judge destroyed so many lives he deserved to do a long stretch of hard time.

I remember these dirty little human traffickers.

That’s what they get for emulating conservatives white males. They deserve far worse.

D’s who behave like entitled white-conservative male Republican chiselers should get the entitled-white-conservative-male-Republican-chiseler treatment.

Lock them all up.

AND fine their grifting asses.
