The Fat Lady isn’t even in the building yet

Please go to the following link and read this article about a Ciavarella trial (kids for cash) juror's comments before you read my Blog.

The Times Leader - Juror: Sentence 'excessive'

Excellent, informative, well written article!  This article clearly outlines the major flaws with both the prosecution and handling of this case.  No one should believe that any of these problems were created by accident or mistake.  The US Attorney in charge and the Judge in this case are two of the most experie...

“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...

Ciavarella sentencing - my predictions

Posted by Larry Hohol on Sunday, August 7, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
Smoke and mirrors.  Don’t look at what Judge Kosik says, look at what he does.  The end result is the real, name of the game.  Here is my prediction.  Judge Kosik will sentence Ciavarella to a moderate to heavy jail sentence.  That will make the general public, who doesn’t know how the game is played, very happy.  Here is where it gets interesting.  I predict that Judge Kosik will then assign the heaviest jail time to the charges that Ciavarella has on appeal and very little time to the c...

Though convicted, corrupt officials not yet behind bars

Posted by Larry Hohol on Tuesday, July 5, 2011, In : Current News 
And the band plays on. Way back when Judge Kosik rejected Ex-Judge Conahan and Ciavarella’s plea deal there was dancing in the streets.  At that time I publicly voiced my concerns. I said Judge Kosik wasn't doing anyone a favor except for Conahan and Ciavarella by rejecting their pleas.  Once again I will voice my concerns and make a prediction or two.  My concerns are “Justice Delayed is Justice Denied”.   There is nothing anyone can now do about the extremely slow turning of the wheel...

The Whole Ciavarella Prosecution Reeks of Damage Control

Posted by Larry Hohol on Wednesday, June 1, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
I honestly believe that if Ciavarella doesn't have certain demands met, he has threatened to spill the beans on the whole corrupt system all the way to Harrisburg.  The damage control started when the US Attorney's Office didn't present ANY evidence to support the actual "Kids for Cash" charges that were included in Ciavarella's Indictment.  "Not guilty" on 27 of the 39 charges is not a victory for the prosecution by anyone’s standards.  Before Ciavarella’s trial began I publicly predicte...

US Attorney’s Office needs to change policy

Posted by Larry Hohol on Saturday, May 7, 2011, In : Thoughts about Judicial Corruption 
I believe that every single person that is offered a plea deal in the Luzerne County corruption probe should spend time in prison.  If they chirp loudly and help expose other corruption I don't have a problem with a reduced sentence.  Single count plea deals for criminals that have exploited legitimate taxpayers dozens or hundreds of times for thousands or even millions of dollars just doesn’t cut it.  Hard working taxpayers are becoming as outraged by the leniency afforded these criminals ...

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.

ALL IS WELL! ALL IS WELL! Identical quotes from the Captain of HMS Titanic and US Attorney Peter Smith

Posted by Larry Hohol on Tuesday, February 22, 2011, In : Kids for Cash Scandal 
I want to hear US Attorney Peter Smith tell us what a great victory it is after Ciavarella reverses 8 of his 12 guilty charges on appeal.  His own office will be the direct reason for the reversal.  The US Attorney who handled Mericle’s case stated in open court during Mericle’s plea that Mericle paid Ciavarella a finder’s fee and not a bribe.  He further went on to say that a finder’s fee is totally legal.  The very same US Attorney’s Office went on to convict Ciavarella of taking ...
