U.S. Judges Admit to Jailing Children for Money

Quote:Philadelphia, Pa. – Judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan of the Court of Common Pleas in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, plead guilty in open court that they sentenced children to juvenile detention because they were paid off to do it by the PA Childcare and a sister company, Western PA Childcare corporation that ran the private facilities.

Ciavarella wrote in a letter to the court,

“Your statement that I have disgraced my judgeship is true. My actions have destroyed everything I worked to accomplish and I have only myself to blame.”

The two judges face up to seven years in prison under a plea agreement made with the state.

The companies in question paid the two judges more than $2.6 million dollars to send children to detention. The companies receive a stipend from the government for each inmate they house. So as more children were sentenced to the detention center, PA Childcare and Western PA Childcare received more money from the government, prosecutors said.

"Teenagers were sentenced to detention for simple misdemeanors."

This nightmare scenario has long been the cry of those trying to end the practice of privatizing prisons in the United States.

Privatization in your grill, this shït takes corruption to the next level, how else can you permit officials to channel your tax money into private corporations?
What a scam.
They bribe the politicians and of course the greedy bastards are all over it.
Funny how privatizing always falls short of the projected cost savings that are promised, it's time to end this charade.

I see there was no mention of bringing charges against the company executives.
