[ix]   Warner, Dave, " Former judge sentenced to prison for "kids for cash" scheme,"   Reuters,   August 11, 2011, Judge Ciavarella sentenced to 28 years in prison for "kids for cash' scheme.   Ciavarella was convicted in February of 12 charges, including racketeering conspiracy and money laundering .   During the trial, Ciavarella testified that the money he received from Robert Mericle, the facility's developer, amounted to "finder fees" and had no connection to the fact that he was a sentencing judge. Conahan, formerly the president judge of the Luzerne County court, has pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and is awaiting sentencing. Prosecutors said Conahan closed the publicly owned Luzerne County Juvenile Detention Facility and helped arrange financing for the private facility.   Both former judges obstructed efforts to investigate the county's use of the private facility and also their financial relationships with Mericle and Robert Powell, the owner of the juvenile center, prosecutors said.
