  • Supreme Court vacates all Ciavarella juvenile

    http://www.thetimes-tribune.com/news...sEnabled=false

    **********

    The state Supreme Court issued an order today vacating all of former Luzerne County judge Mark A. Ciavarella's juvenile court rulings from 2003 through 2008.

    Ciavarella faces racketeering charges for allegedly accepting kickbacks from the former owner of a for-profit juvenile detention center. Prosecutors say he jailed juveniles on minor offenses, denied them counsel and overruled court officials who recommended penalties other than detention.

    Check back for more details.

    Well, now all these "innocent juveniles" can finally get their records cleaned and get into their "dream job" of being a cop.

      The problem is most of the juvies did mostly bs things, which in most counties would be considered summary offenses. The 2 judges took bribes to send these kids to these secure facilities to get state money. They actually did a version on the tv show cold case about a kid who died a few years ago in one. So the court viewed all cases as tainted and dismissed as did the district attorney and attorney general.

        Outrageous conduct by the judge. Not sure about the remedy.

          I've had cases in front of that judge, and always thought he was a decent judge. Juveniles didn't get away with crap in his court. Now........we know why.

              Sounds like MANY counts of False Imprisionment.
