Kids for cash: two judges, thousands of children, and a $2.8 million kickback scheme.

Matthew, Angelia, and Charlie are just three children among the thousands who appeared in Judge Mark A. Ciavarella's courtroom between 2003 and 2008 and were sent away to a detention facility in which, it later came to light, Ciavarella had a personal financial stake. The author shows how this miscarriage of justice underscores a multitude of problems with our juvenile justice system.
