Kids for Cash judge sent to jail

It's so rare to see justice served and especially sweet to see it dished out to this creepy judge who so unequivocally deserved the punishment.
SCRANTON, Pa. — A longtime northeastern Pennsylvania judge was ordered to spend nearly three decades in prison for his role in a massive juvenile justice bribery scandal that prompted the state’s high court to toss thousands of convictions.

Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was sentenced Thursday to 28 years in federal prison for taking $1 million in bribes from the builder of a pair of juvenile detention centers in a case that became known as “kids for cash.”
As you'll probably recall, those thousands of convictions were all children, wrongfully sent into hellhole, juvenile detention centers. I only wish they had also ordered him to give every cent he had to the kids as some small compensation for the injustice he perpetrated against them -- out of pure greed.
