Judge Ruined Thousands of Lives for Cash from
Private Detention Center
Mr. Ciavarella was convicted and just sentenced to what is hoped to be a life sentence

District Judge Edwin Kosik's 28-year sentence will likely keep Mr. Ciavarella behind bars until he is 89. U.S.
William Ruzzo, Mr. Ciavarella's lawyer, called the sentence for his client "much too harsh," noting that it amounted to a life sentence. "This was a nonviolent offense. I've had people convicted of murder who received as little as a six-to-12-year sentence," he said, adding that he plans to appeal the conviction
Does anyone think this case is the only one of its kind? It may be the only one if its kind to be found out.
