11-07-29 Kids for Cash in Pennsylvania and Rampart Scandal in Los Angeles // Los niños por dinero en efectivo en Pennsylvania y escándalo de Rampart en Los Angeles // 小孩在宾夕法尼亚州的现金,并在洛杉矶的壁垒丑闻


Kids for Cash resembles more and more the Rampart Scandal by the day...

In Kids for Cash, judges in Luzerne County received millions in bribes and falsely imprisoned thousands of juveniles.  Now only "over 100 victims" are identified?

In the Rampart Scandal (1998-2000), estimates of those who were falsely imprisoned in Los Angeles County were well above 10,000. Eventually only less than 200 were released...

The 2006 Blue Ribbon Review Panel concluded "innocent people remain in prison", and cited the judges objecting to the release of the victims, since it would cause "collapse of the justice system".

Supreme Court Approves Restitution to Luzerne County Victims

The state Supreme Court has approved about $65,000 in restitution for the victims of juveniles whose convictions were overturned following the Luzerne County "kids-for-cash" scandal.

The court posted three special master determinations that collectively listed the names of over 100 victims and the amounts each will be compensated from the Special Juvenile Victim Compensation Fund, which was established in 2010 "solely to provide compensation to victims of juvenile crime in a county of the third class."

The documents, signed by Berks County Senior Judge Arthur E. Grim, the special master appointed by the Supreme Court to review former Luzerne County Judge Mark A. Ciavarella Jr.'s cases, show the largest awards to be in the $1,200 to $1,500 range.

According to the documents, the amount to be paid to each victim is equal to what each would have been entitled to had a consent decree or adjudication of delinquency not been vacated in his or her case, minus any compensation that may have already been paid in connection with the alleged crime.

In February, a federal jury in Scranton found Ciavarella guilty of 12 of 39 counts of corruption filed against him, including racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, honest services mail fraud, money laundering conspiracy and a host of tax fraud charges. Ciavarella was cleared of extortion, bribery and honest services wire fraud charges, however.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Aug. 11.

In March 2010, the state Supreme Court issued an order approving the final steps to expunge the records of all juveniles who appeared before Ciavarella between 2003 and 2008.

On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
