Ex-Judge to Plead Guilty in Kids-for-Cash Scandal; Is He ‘Singing Like a Bird’?

Posted Apr 30, 2010 8:09 AM CDT
Former Luzerne County Judge Michael Conahan has agreed to plead guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy in the $2.8 million “kids for cash” scandal.
Conahan faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when he is sentenced, according to the Legal Intelligencer and the Associated Press. The agreement does not include a minimum sentence; instead it specifies the penalty will be “determined by the court.”
According to the Intelligencer, “The sentiment from several sources upon reviewing the plea deal was: ‘He must be singing like a bird.’ ” The sources said Conahan essentially ran the county and will be expected to name lawyers or others in the alleged conspiracy.
Conahan and another judge, Mark Ciavarella Jr., were accused of accepting kickbacks in exchange for jailing juveniles in a private detention facility. A federal judge rejected a plea deal last year that called for sentences of 87 months in prison, saying the defendants had not accepted responsibility for their wrongdoing.
Ciavarella’s lawyer, Al Flora Jr., told AP that his client maintains his innocence. ''He's going to trial,'' Flora said.

One must wonder why racketeering and false imprisonments in Luzerne County, PA, are prosecuted by Federal agencies, while similar conditions in Los Angeles County, California, are fully patronized by FBI and US Department of Justice.  Already during the Rampart corruption scandal (1998-2000), false imprisonments of thousands of Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) was documented.  They are almost exclusively blacks and Latinos, and by estimate about a third of them were still juveniles at the time of their framing.  However, Federal agencies permitted the Los Angeles County justice system to investigate, prosecute, and judge itself, with predictable outcome.
By 2006, the LAPD’s Blue Ribbon Review Panel concluded “Innocent people remain in prison”.  It also stated that the LA county justice system tolerated “a subcult of criminality in the ranks”, and called for an external investigation. 
No external investigation was ever instituted to this date.

[1] The Rampart FIPs - a Review

May 1, 2010 11:56 AM CDT
Mr McLeod failed to respond in on the matter itself in any way at all:
* The acclaimed PBS Frontline series - LAPD Blues - estimated in 2001 (and updated in 2008), the number of those falsely convicted and falsely sentenced to long terms by the corrupt justice system of Los Angeles County, California at 8,000 - 16,000, or more. [1]
* The official LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel concluded in 2006 that such persons remained in prison.  By estimate, only about 150-200 of the Rampart-FIPs were freed over the years through reversal of their false convictions. [2]
* Prof Erwin Chemerinsky, founding Dean of the University of California Irvine Law School, in reviewing the case in 20001 wrote:  “This is conduct associated with the most repressive dictators and police states… and judges must share responsibility when innocent people are convicted.” [3]
* Then Dean, Prof David Burcham and Prof Katherine Fisk, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, in reviewing the case in 2001 wrote: “…judges tried and sentenced a staggering number of people for crimes they did not commit.”  [4]
The obvious question remains unanswered:  Why did FBI and US Department of Justice permit, and continue to permit the large scale false imprisonments in Los Angeles County, California?
Any response on the matter would be greatly appreciated…

May 1, 2010 6:14 PM CDT
The opinions quoted above included those by the team of Public Broadcasting Service Frontline series, makers of the acclaimed series -  LAPD Blues - to this dates posted online, providing a living monument for the large scale false imprisonments in Los Angeles County, California. Other opinions were by a notable constitutional scholar and law school dean - Erwin Chemerinsky, and by another dean and law professor from yet another California law school.
The official Blue Ribbon Review Panel named prominent Los Angeles County attorneys among its members, it was commissioned in 2003 and published its official report in 2006 after a three year study.
A reasonable person would find it hard to dismiss all these weighty opinions with no counter argument or counter opinion on the matter itself at all.  In fact, the Blue Ribbon Review Panel directly addressed the issue of conspiracy theories in its 2006 report -  as quoted below, among other highlights from the report:
“Unanimously, criminal defense attorneys and civil plaintiffs’
attorneys believe ... innocent people remain in prison. “
Los Angeles Superior Court’s must be “examine[d for] its role in
accepting pleas from innocent defendants and failing to detect
police perjury or the conviction of the innocent.”
“...law enforcement, prosecutors and judges - inexorably chose
containment. It is not that individuals or entities conspired to
cover up corruption; it is that when a window on its true extent
opened, they simply closed it.”
“The response by police to the Blue Ribbon Panel report was of
interest in that it failed to ever mention past present or future
investigation into the Rampart scandal abuses that were the
reason the Panel was instituted, and were the subject of its report.
Obviously the LA Superior Court and the DA office, the two other
parts of the justice system that the Blue Panel Report
recommends must be investigated relative to the integrity of the
system, have not produced any response that we know of…”
