Judge Sentenced To 28 Years For Selling ‘Kids For Cash’ To Prisons

A Pennsylvania judge in Pennsylvania was just sentenced to 28 years in prison for selling “kids-for-cash.”
The bribery scandal made headlines when Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was alleged to have taking $1 million in bribes from juvenile detention centers to fill their cells with children who came before him in court.
The Associated Press says the following:

Quote:The Pennsylvania Supreme Court tossed about 4,000 convictions issued by Ciavarella between 2003 and 2008, saying he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles, including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea.
Ciavarella, 61, was tried and convicted of racketeering charges earlier this year. His attorneys had asked for a “reasonable” sentence in court papers, saying, in effect, that he’s already been punished enough.
“The media attention to this matter has exceeded coverage given to many and almost all capital murders, and despite protestation, he will forever be unjustly branded as the ‘Kids for Cash’ judge,” their sentencing memo said.

Not at all trying to poo on your thread, Priest.  I fully believe that Kansas Dcfs regularly abuse or misuse their office and authority. 
That said, the guy in the video is hardly an innocent victim of Child Protective Services.

"In May of 2015, two months before the hearing in which the 15-year-old boy’s letter was entered into evidence, the Schwabs attended a court hearing in hopes of regaining custody of their children. Instead, their situation worsened.
A Riley County judge determined Raymond Schwab’s behavior in a hallway was that of a man under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to the Court of Appeals opinion. Both parents were ordered to undergo a drug test before the hearing could begin. They complied.
Amelia Schwab was clean, but Raymond Schwab tested positive for methamphetamine, amphetamine, hydrocodone and tramadol, an opioid, according to the Court of Appeals opinion. He left the courtroom before the hearing began, returned in the middle of the hearing and withdrew his motion for a new custody hearing.
Three weeks later, Raymond Schwab filed a motion to suppress the results of his drug test. A judge denied the motion and ordered another drug test. This time, he refused."

But that was just that one case.  I have witnessed over reach with protective services.  A friend had her kid taken into protective custody strictly based on  false accusation from a pissed off ex. Although none of the accusations were true, she was not allowed to see her child for an extended period of time while they investigated.  She basically had to prove her innocence instead of protective services proving any guilt.  Absolute horse caca as far as I am concerned.

I do want to stress that even though this guy (the case has been in the local news here off and on for a year or so) is clearly trying to garner public sympathy, much of what he says as far as Kansas and Missouri CPS is spot on.  So, regardless of the background of this particular guy, he does present some shadiness with Dcfs and CPS that has recently been receiving press locally.
This guy will have to decide if he wants his children, or wants his drugs. 

But yah, after using meth a while, it may be impossible to EVER stop using.  It makes permanent changes in the brain

Can people use meth responsibly? 

We were having a lot of meth freakouts and up to no good for a while, so we did a meth awareness month
and we haven't seen freakouts, meth psychosis, in years.  We believe those who sell it told their customers if they get out of line, they'll not be able to purchase meth any longer.  It seems the meth community moderated their intake
some, still it's a very damaging drug that eats a person alive and not slowly either. 

What can be done about this meth mess that's been created, partially due to so many depressing things happening in the world of today?
