A federal judge has affirmed the 28-year prison sentence for former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella, convicted for his role in the “kids-for-cash” scandal.

Ciavarella, 70, was sentenced in 2011 to 28 years’ imprisonment for accepting $2.8 million in kickbacks, along with fellow Judge Michael Conahan, from the builder and former co-owner of a private juvenile detention facility. The sentencing followed a trial at which a jury convicted Ciavarella of 12 of 39 counts of corruption, including racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, honest services mail fraud, money laundering conspiracy and a host of tax fraud charges.
