Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.

Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.

His "kids for cash" program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

And that's only the one who got caught! How many more judges are passing down harsh sentences to fill privately ran correctional facilities??

Some people have no conscience, and it's despicable.

Horrible things happen in detention facilities, even juvenile ones. How can you live with yourself, knowingly sending undeserving people there?!

Let the lawsuits roll in!

You'd be surprised.
But I agree. This was touched on a little  in the school to prison pipeline thread. And it makes me mad AF. I hope these people sue and hopefully they can bring media attention to the Prison Industrial Complex.
