Going Around in Circles
Former judge Mark Ciavarella will be sentenced tomorrow morning in federal court at Scranton.
In a pre sentence brief, one of his attornies asked for a reasonable sentence, saying Ciavarella's "unusual collateral employment circumstances" leave him susceptible to abuse while behind bars.
Let me get this straight. The guy is going to jail because he was a dirty judge. Yet, the defense asks for a break because the guy was a judge.
Mark Ciavarella is a lucky man. He has lawyers. Thousands of kids who went before him didn't.
