Judge gets 28 Years For Kids for Cash Scam

Former Pennsylvania Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr was sentenced yesterday to 28 years in federal prison, according to the SF Chronicle, for taking a $1 million bribe from the builder of juvenile detention centers in a case known as "kids for cash." The scandal has forced the state's high court to toss out four thousand juvenile convictions. The sentence is essentially a life sentence for Ciaverella, who is 61 (assuming he serves the entire term).
