Judge to serve 28 years after making $2 million for sending black children to jail


Judge Mark A. Ciavarella  and his partner in crime, Judge Michael Conahan who accepted private-prison bribes  from prison contractors to keep prisons full & send kids to jail (many of whom were Black) were sentenced to 28 years. They made over $2.6 million doing so. Ciavarella, once sent an African-American child to jail for three months for posting negative comments about her assistant principal on MySpace.Once Ciavarella was convicted, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed out 4,000 convictions issued by the judge.
