CRANTON, Pennsylvania (AP) — Two judges charged with taking millions of dollars in kickbacks to send teenagers to two privately run youth detention
centers are expected to plead guilty to fraud.
Prosecutors say the two judges took $2.6 million in payoffs to put juvenile offenders in lockups run by PA Child Care LLC and a sister company,
Western PA Child Care LLC. The judges were charged on Jan. 26 and removed from the bench by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court shortly afterward.
I hope this is just a start. Our judicial system, from my experience, is hopelessly corrupt and abusive. We need an additional bill of rights for
the modern age. We also need a great deal more judicial review. I suspect this is just a sample of what courts around the country are up to.
