Two Pennsylvania judges have pleaded guilty to taking 2.6 million dollars in payoffs for trials over which they presided. The deals for which they got paid off sent 2,000 children to juvenile detention facilities in Luzerne and Butler counties.
The owner of the privately run detention facilities, Pittsburgh businessman Greg Zappala, paid – and kept his facilities full and profitable!
He hasn’t been charged yet. His brother is the District Attorney for Allegheny County. His father is a former State Supreme Court justice!
