"Kids for Cash" judge sentenced!

Pennsylvania: Judge Mark Ciaverella Jr. was sentenced on Thursday to 28 years in federal prison for sending kids as young as ten years old to juvenile detention centers without due process.
Federal prosecutors accused Ciavarella and a second judge, Michael Conahan, of taking more than $2 million in bribes from Robert Mericle, the builder of the PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care detention centers, and of extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from Robert Powell, co-owner of the facilities.
