What the Penn State and Kids for Cash scandals have in common

Posted by Larry Hohol on Wednesday, November 23, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
From the November 11, 2011 The Legal Intelligencer, written by Hank Grezlak. My comment follows the article.

It's Open Season on Children in Pennsylvania

In light of the Penn State sex abuse scandal, Pennsylvania really needs to change its nickname from the Keystone State to the Child Abuser State.
The shameful moniker fits. After a decade that has already included the Archdiocese of Philadelphia priest sex abuse scandal and the Luzerne County judicial scandal featuring "kids-for-cash," how c...

Prison Bound Felon Judge Conahan Tells the Biggest Lie of His Life

Posted by Larry Hohol on Sunday, October 2, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
Ex-Judge Conahan told the biggest lie of his entire life when he stated that the system was not corrupt. The system all the way through failed to stop both of these judges.  The Judicial Conduct Board knew the bulk of the issues that these two corrupt judges were eventually charged with.  Instead of investigating as the board is "REQUIRED" to do, the board tabled a detailed anonymous complaint against these very judges and instead went after the Judge suspected of being the author.  This same...

“Kids for cash” cover-up, federal style?

Posted by Larry Hohol on Wednesday, August 10, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
I am convinced that there is a cover up of the entire "Kids for Cash" scandal taking place before our very eyes.  Think about it.  The US Attorney's Office “shocked the world” when they rested their case against Ciavarella without presenting a single exhibit or witness to support the "kids for cash" charges in the indictment.  NOTHING on the record, NOTHING! US Attorney Peter Smith then stated after the trial that 12 guilty verdicts out of 39 charges was a great victory and that Federal C...

WILK FM Radio's The Sue Henry Show interviews Larry Hohol

Posted by Larry Hohol on Thursday, August 4, 2011, In : Larry's News 
 My interview by Sue Henry, host of "The Sue Henry Show" on WILK-FM, 103.1 in Wilkes-Barre on June 16, 2011 as a part of the "Barnes and Noble Author Event" was a very successful and enjoyable experience.  The scheduled 20 minute appearance was extended to two hours after the switchboard lit up solid with phone calls from listeners.  The call-in listeners were great!  We had some very interesting and revealing conversations.  The video is in six parts.

Judicial Conduct Board corruption needs to be exposed again!

Posted by Larry Hohol on Saturday, July 30, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
The proper thing would have been to offer new trials to all juveniles who requested one and let stand the convictions and guilty pleas of all who did not request a new trial. By doing so taxpayer money would NOT have been required for restitution.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court was in such a hurry to cover up the inexcusable activity of the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board that justice or fairness never entered into the equation.  It was all about making this nightmare (exposure) go away ...

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Denies Judge Lokuta’s Motion for Sinister Reasons

Posted by Larry Hohol on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
I don’t want to live in a country that cuts off both arms of convicted pickpockets.  There is NO DOUBT that Judge Lokuta deserves some sort of discipline for her Judge Judy style of justice in her courtroom.  That being said, I am extremely uncomfortable with the highest profile witnesses against her being Felon Ex-Judges Conahan and Ciavarella.  Combine this with the Chairman of the Judicial Conduct Board being business partners with Conahan and the Chief Prosecutor against Judge Lokuta be...

US Attorney Peter Smith’s decision will harm victims of the “Kids for Cash” scandal

Posted by Larry Hohol on Monday, March 7, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
US Attorney Peter Smith knew exactly what he was doing when he did not put a single piece of evidence into the trial of Ciavarella that created any official record of "Kids for Cash".  Tax Evasion, Racketeering, and Conspiracy YES. Kids for Cash"......NO!  I for one don't buy Smith’s explanation as to why he did what he did or in this case, what he didn’t do.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Castille Should Step Down

Posted by Larry Hohol on Thursday, March 3, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
The Luzerne "Kids For Cash" Scandal.

What a pitiful charade.  Most people in Luzerne County know that if the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board did its job as required by its own rules Conahan and Ciavarella would have been stopped in their tracks 3 years and thousands of children before the FBI finally came into town and arrested the two judges.

Most also know if the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania did its job when an emergency “Kings Bench" petition was filed by a Philadelphia based Juvenile...

Ciavarella, “Kids for Cash” Trial Fixed?

Posted by Larry Hohol on Friday, February 18, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
There isn’t much that shocks me when it comes to case fixing in Luzerne County or anywhere else in Pennsylvania for that matter but what has happened in the Mark Ciavarella trial defies any “legitimate” explanation. Here is what I said in my Judicial Corruption Blog before this trial began:

"It appears that even the FBI and US Attorney’s Office did not want to open this can of worms."

A public trial of this magnitude has huge ramifications. It has the potential to not only expose massiv...

Corrupt Judges Are Nothing More.....

Posted by Larry Hohol on Tuesday, February 8, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
There is a part of me that would love to make former Judge Ciavarella wear his Judge’s Robe while on trial. Without the robe he looks like Mr. Rogers. With the robe I would dare to say he would show the jury his true contempt for these proceedings. Kind of like a punk with a gun, without the gun he is just a punk. Without their robes, corrupt judges are nothing more.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Will Never Reverse Judge Lokuta Decision - Doing So Would Implicate the Supreme Court Itself

Posted by Larry Hohol on Monday, January 31, 2011, In : Current News 
Upwards of 40 Complaints filed against Conahan and Ciavarella and all were dismissed by the Judicial Conduct Board when in fact C&C admitted they were committing unspeakable felonies while on the bench. Most of the witnesses who testified against Judge Lokuta have been arrested, removed from office, or worked directly for those who have. The Chairman of the Judicial Conduct Board was business partners with Conahan. Attorney Dick Sprague who spearheaded the removal of Judge Lokuta while sittin...

Editor-in-Chief of the Nation’s Oldest Law Journal Seems to Agree With Me About Judge Lokuta

Posted by Larry Hohol on Wednesday, January 26, 2011, In : Thoughts about Judicial Corruption 
Count me among those who used the terms, "Unbelievable, Shocking, and Disappointing.”  Add to that list “Totally Predictable.”  Many months ago I publicly predicted that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would NEVER rule in favor of a new trial for Judge Lokuta.  I also stated that their decision would have NOTHING to do with the facts of the case or the law of the land but rather more with their concerns surrounding a new trial and the exposure that the Judicial Conduct Board would then r...

I'm Not a Fan of Judge Lokuta, BUT....

Posted by Larry Hohol on Saturday, January 1, 2011, In : Current News 
My comments about Judge Lokuta have stirred some impassioned reactions from readers of my newspaper article comments and my blog.

Let me make it clear.  I am not a fan of Judge Lokuta.  That being said, we know that a number of people who testified against Judge Lokuta were committing felonies at the same time they testified against her.  We also know that the Chairman of the Judicial Conduct Board was business partners in TWO businesses with one of those admitted felons (Conahan) thus creatin...

The Lynching of Judge Lokuta

Posted by Larry Hohol on Sunday, December 12, 2010, In : Current News 
Whether you love Judge Lokuta or you hate Judge Lokuta, what happened to her was a modern day lynching. I have no confidence that the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania will do the right thing here as they themselves are part of the problem. I believe the proceedings that removed her from the bench were tainted. No that's too politically correct. I believe that the proceedings that removed Judge Lokuta from the bench were fixed and fixed in a big, big way. I also believe that not only had Conahan ...

The Biggest Obstacle to Eliminating Judicial Corruption in Luzerne County

Posted by Larry Hohol on Saturday, December 11, 2010, In : Thoughts about Judicial Corruption 
In order to RESTORE faith in the Luzerne County Juvenile Justice System one would have to first assume that there was ever faith in the system to begin with.  That my friends, is a huge assumption.  As a vocal critic of the Luzerne County Judiciary for over 20 years I am here to tell you that the more I dug into the cesspool we call the Courthouse the more I came to realize that the system is corrupt all the way to Harrisburg.  Mere exposure of this corruption does absolutely nothing to chang...

Kids for Cash Scandal. No... Atrocity!

Posted by Larry Hohol on Thursday, November 25, 2010, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
Everyone PLEASE Google the phrase “Kids for Cash”. It is a huge ongoing scandal involving a privatized prison in Pennsylvania in which thousands of children were illegally incarcerated over a period of about the last 5 years. Two State Judges have been arrested by the FBI for taking bribes amounting to over 2.8 million dollars from the prison developers and the prison operators. The entire safety net system up to and including the Supreme Court of PA failed to halt these incarcerati...
