Ex-judge Ciavarella gets 28 years in children for cash case


SCRANTON – Mark A. Ciavarella Jr., whose hard-nosed zero-tolerance policy as a Luzerne County Juvenile Court judge fueled a kids-for-cash conspiracy that generated millions in kickbacks from a for-profit detention center, will is now on the other side of the bench.

The former judge is sentenced today Thursday  11 August 2011 to 28 years in federal prison for taking $1 million in bribes from the builder of a pair of juvenile detention centers in a case that became known as “kids for cash.”

The longtime northeastern Pennsylvania judge was ordered to spend nearly three decades in prison for his role in a massive juvenile justice bribery scandal that prompted the state’s high court to toss thousands of convictions.

Prosecutors alleged Ciavarella and another judge, Michael T. Conahan, conspired to close a county-owned detention center and direct juveniles to a newly built for-profit center in Pittston Township. The builder and co-owner of the center paid the two judges $2.8 million, according to a grand jury indictment.
