    Pennsylvania judge sentenced to 28 years in prison for selling teens to prisons


    Disgraced Pennsylvania judge Mark Ciavarella Jr has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for conspiring with private prisons to sentence juvenile offenders to maximum sentences for bribes and kickbacks which totaled millions of dollars. He was also ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution.

    In the private prison industry the more time an inmate spends in a facility, the more of a profit is reaped from the state. Ciavearella was a figurehead in a conspiracy in the state of Pennsylvania which saw thousands of young men and women unjustly punished and penalized in the name of corporate profit.

    According to allgov.com Ciavearella's cases from 2003 - 2008 were reviewed by a special investigative panel and later by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and it was found that upwards of 5,000 young men and women were denied their constitutional rights, and therefore all of their convictions were dismissed and were summarily released.

    During his sentencing Ciavarella was defiant, claiming he had broken no laws and claimed the money he received was a legitimate 'finder's fee.' Assistant U.S. Attorney Gordon Zubrod said comments such as these were typical of Ciavarella, according to the local reporting of citizensvoice.com:
    "I think that's his way of doing things. Never retreat. Always go on the attack. Always blame somebody else. Always get them to back off. He tried it with the judge. It didn't work."

    What an A-hole! I mean how long would that even take? 5 workdays/week ... If he sent up one per day, that's 1000 weeks ... divided by 50 wks/yr ... that's 20 years. So at 2/day it's still everyday for 10 years straight ... WTF?

    Private prisons are the way to go; just keep your money grubbing lefty judges (both judges in this scandal were democrats) from getting kickbacks for sending them inmates

    So a government judge was corrupt and you think this is a failure of not enough government?

    Does history back up this claim?

    you're asking me to provide you with instances of prisoner mistreatment in federal or state prisons? i don't believe you're serious right now.

    i want you to think about what you just said and try again.
