It is very positive development that Judges Ciavarella and Conahan of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania have entered their guilty pleas in regards to public corruption for tkaing kickbacks for sending youth into detention facilities. I am hopeful that many will continue to keep their eyes on these scoundrels and insure that they do not receive any special treatments as they violated the trust of the people and have impacted negatively the lives of countless children. This should be seen as a victory, but only the beginning. There is far more to uncover, and I am convinced that these issues of corruption will be found further within the judicial (and other systems) of Luzerne County, as well as the neighboring counties. Sadly, situations such as this are probably even more far reaching. In coordination with other advocates and activists, I personally remained committed to exploring the practices and possible corruption of others and seek to bring this to light so that true justice may arise. Whereas it is preliminary to make specific statements, many have brought to my attention questionable practices and unethical and harmful agendas by those in the judicial and child protective service systems within not only Luzerne County, but the neighboring counties. Hopefully individuals who are involved in disgraceful and harmful actions realize that particularly with the recent developments regarding Judges Ciavarella and Conahan, that the public is watching more closely and with greater scrutiny, and their actions will too be brought to light, they can no longer deceive the public and harm others.
