FRANKLY, THIS SEEMS LENIENT. BUT THEN, HE IS A JUDGE: Pennsylvania Judge Gets 28 Years In “Kids For Cash” Case. “A longtime northeastern Pennsylvania judge was ordered to spend nearly three decades in prison for his role in a massive juvenile justice bribery scandal that prompted the state’s high court to toss thousands of convictions.” Thanks to reader John Fast for the link.

UPDATE: Reader Anthony Howe thinks this wasn’t lenient at all, noting that with no parole this is worse than what many murderers get. Well, the crime was worse than many murders, but I suppose the statute doesn’t provide for the death penalty. And given the judge’s age this is probably tantamount to a life sentence, so yeah.
