Judges involved in juvenile court fraud
A couple of days ago I posted a note about a case in Michigan involving a judge and prosecutor who got caught in a scheme to allow perjured testimony (and there are a couple of new comments on it). Now comes news of what some authorities are calling the biggest legal scandal in Pennsylvania history. Two judges have pleaded guilty to tax evasion and wire fraud in a scheme that involved sending thousands of juveniles to two private detention centers in exchange for $2.6 million in kickbacks. Full story here.
