New York Times has more on Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. partner-in-crime Michael T. Conahan pleading guilty to wire and income tax fraud. It's unclear from this article what happened with/to that previous sentence, it sounds like this sentence is a plea that will leave them with only 87 months in Federal Prison.

Bastards deserve way way longer.

They should put this bastard into the general population, post his resume on the cell door, then lave the room.

"The media attention to this matter has exceeded coverage given to many and almost all capital murders, and despite protestation, he will forever be unjustly branded as the 'kids for cash' judge," they said.

It's astounding that a judge who is charged with giving disproportionate sentences complain about the degree of his own sentence. He should have to face a sentence as dire and disproportionate as those of his "victims". Unfortunately, it's impossible to quantify just how disproportionate the sentences were that he doled out. He pretty much ruined the lives of thousands of children.
