Judge Convicted of Selling Kids to the Prison System

            Mark Ciavarella Jr
There are some who are not entirely convinced of the evils that may  come out of the prison industrial complex.  This story might change your mind. 
A judge in Pennsylvania has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for literally exchanging young people for cash.  
Mark Ciavarella Jr. was convicted of accepting money in exchange for  choosing to incarcerate thousands of young people into the facility of a developer who was paying him under the table. 
Allgov.com  (see article below) details the “kids for cash” program, which revealed the  depth of corruption that has led to increased incarceration rates,  driven partly by the growth in private prisons seeking profits at all  cost. 
One company, the Corrections Corporation of America, even agreed  to buy the prisons from 48 states, as long as lawmakers guaranteed them 90% occupancy rates.
Robert Mericle,  builder of the PA and Western PA Child Care juvenile detention centers  is one of the other culprits. The judge was convicted of 12 counts,  including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion.   He is also being told to repay $1.2 million in restitution. 

Prosecutors reviewed all of the cases over which the judge presided,  from 2003 through 2008, concluding that he had denied the constitutional rights of as many as 5,000 juveniles, some as young as 10 years old.    One student was given three months in a detention center for mocking an  assistant principal on his Myspace page.          Cases like this make the  school-to-prison pipeline all too real.

Judge Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison for "Selling" Kids to Private Prisons

Accused of perpetrating a “profound evil,” former Pennsylvania  judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for  illegally accepting money from a juvenile-prison developer while he  spent years incarcerating thousands of young people.
 
Prosecutors said Ciavarella sent juveniles to jail as part of a  “kids for cash” scheme involving Robert Mericle, builder of the PA and  Western PA Child Care juvenile detention centers. The ex-judge was  convicted in February of 12 counts that included racketeering, money  laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion.
 
In addition to his prison sentence, Ciavarella was ordered to pay nearly $1.2 million in restitution.
 
At his sentencing, Ciavarella acknowledged his illegal acceptance  of money from Mericle. But he denied ever jailing a juvenile in exchange for money.
 
Once the case against Ciavarella surfaced, special investigative  panels began reviewing cases he handled from 2003 to 2008. The  Pennsylvania Supreme Court concluded that he denied about 5,000  juveniles, some as young as ten, their constitutional rights, leading to the vacating of their convictions.
 
Among the young people exploited by Ciavarella were 15-year-old  Hillary Transue, who was sentenced to three months at a juvenile  detention center for mocking an assistant principal on a MySpace page;  and 13-year-old Shane Bly, who was sent to a boot camp for two weekends  after being accused of trespassing in a vacant building.
 
Another judge, Michael T. Conahan, used his position to shut down  the county-run juvenile detention center and redirect juvenile detainees to the private prisons. He pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.
