Pa. Judge Sentenced To 28 Years For Selling Black Teens To Prison

Maybe he should have been sold into slavery to another country so he can see how it feels to be powerless.

Pa. Judge Sentenced To 28 Years In Massive Juvenile Justice Bribery Scandal

A Pennsylvania judge was sentenced to 28 years in prison in connection to a bribery scandal that roiled the state’s juvenile justice system. Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was convicted of taking $1 million in bribes from developers of juvenile detention centers.

The judge then presided over cases that would send juveniles to those same centers. The case came to be known as “kids-for-cash.”

  1. A glimpse into Ciavarella’s past. Graduation day:

    “Well, young fellow, we’re so proud of you for going to law school so you can help the poor and oppressed, and correct some of the wrongs that the system is prone to.”

    “Actually, my plan is to make a fortune and ruin a bunch of lives.”

    The best part is where his mouthpiece says he’s already punished enough. Because of being UNJUSTLY BRANDED the cash-for-kids judge. Priceless comedy. You couldn’t make this shit up. Only the real-life untrammeled greed of real live soul-less assclowns could provide this caliber of humor.

    UNJUSTLY BRANDED. Ha ha ha ha. Ha!

    I remember this case from several years ago. I’m glad he got 28/yrs. Usually corrupt officials that frame black people when caught,get very lenient sentences. He deserves more but 28 yrs is good. Hopefully it won’t stop with this cretin. 4000 convictions had to be overturned. FOUR THOUSAND. FOUR THOUSAND LIVES THIS CRETIN RUINED. I believe there’s a documentary about this crime against humanity.

    • Hey Chuquest. Thanks for your comment. I have to do some research after hearing that a person who colluded with the judge was also charged but ended up being a state witness.
