Former Pennsyvlania Judge Michael Conahan used to hold meetings about twice a month with a reputed mob boss and a common friend -- also an admitted felon -- to discuss pending court cases, according to a supplement to a King's Bench petition filed with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Friday. Conahan and Mark Ciavarella Jr. have pleaded guilty to charges they accepted $2.6 million in kickbacks from the owner and builder of a juvenile detention center, to which they allegedly steered juveniles.
