Now that Ciaverella has been locked up, that solves one problem, but raises an important question that few are asking: was this an isolated incident, or are there more just like him who have made similar deals with prisons across the United States.

was alleged to have taking $1 million in bribes from juvenile detention centers to fill their cells with children who came before him in court.

They should find out who these bribers are and go after them. Seize their assets and give it to the kids who's lives they ruined

His attorneys had asked for a “reasonable” sentence in court papers, saying, in effect, that he’s already been punished enough. "The media attention to this matter has exceeded coverage given to many and almost all capital murders, and despite protestation, he will forever be unjustly branded as the ‘Kids for Cash’ judge."

The dude destroyed lives for profit, he has not been punished enough. At the very least, he should be forever fucking branded as the "Kids for Cash" asshole.

I agree with you, but remember that it is the duty of defence lawyers to say whatever necessary to either get the best possible outcome for their clients. The fact that he had to resort to such a lousy plea shows how much of a shit this"Kids for Cash" asshole is and how little the defence lawyer had to work with.

And the fact that this shitty plea ended with a guy walking away with 28 years for over 4,000 unjust sentences shows how much of a shit our justice system is and how little they give a fuck. Murderers are put in prison for stealing the remainder of someones time spent alive, this judge has done the same thing in 4,000 smaller doses and should be given consecutive life sentences accordingly.

Does not make the defense attorney's comment ethical though. More like pathetic.

Maybe he will get to be in with the people that he put there unjustly.

That would be fun.

And this is the wonderful system that Bernie Sanders wants to get rid of, why would anyone want to get rid of this? This is what makes America special, no other country have this problem.

Luckily, at his age, 28 years is basically a life sentence, which is exactly what he deserves. Ideally he would be kept alive and in jail for however many centuries it takes to equal the time he stole from all those kids, and since that sort of life expectancy isn't possible yet, an effective life sentence will do.

I thought we had another thread with the same news from an article that was over a year old?

Try four years. For some reason somebody writes a new article about it like every 3 weeks.

We do, just not technically.

From Wikipedia's Kids for Cash"

On August 11, 2011, Ciavarella was sentenced to 28 years in federal prison as a result of his conviction.[36] He is currently being held at the Federal Correctional Institution, Pekin, a federal prison in Illinois which holds minimum and medium security inmates. He is scheduled for release in 2035, when he will be 85 years old.[37] Ciavarella appealed his conviction to the Third Circuit and it was rejected on July 25, 2013.[38]

WTF Mint Press?

This news is four years old. That said, why the fuck did the people he was selling them to not get prison as well?

Does anybody know what happened to the people who were bribing him? They deserve at least the same sentence. Which companies were doing it?

I wonder if he will run into any of those children during his incarceration? Bet that will be like a family reunion.

Aw, hell. If he's going to one of the jails run by his friends they could wind up making him a trustie. Wouldn't that be the icing on the cake.

My guess is that once he no longer could be bribed by them he lost all value. Something tells me that these kind of people are not too loyal.
