FYI - 01.30.14 - - "Prosecutors: 'Kids for cash' figure breaches deal."

Prosecutors name is US Attorney Peter Smith.  I wonder why Mr. Smith and other prosecutors won't help the HOA, etc., victims in north eastern Pennsylvania? The abuses are horrific and innocent people are homeless due to a "select few," just like in this horrible, unthinkable criminality!

"Prosecutors: ’Kids for cash’ figure breaches deal

January 30, 2014
SCRANTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors said Thursday they are seeking a hearing to determine whether a developer at the center of one of the biggest judicial scandals in U.S. history violated the terms of his plea agreement and committed new crimes while awaiting sentencing.
Robert K. Mericle has failed to live up to his obligations under a plea deal, the U.S. attorney’s office said in court papers filed in Scranton. Prosecutors asked a judge to hold a hearing on the matter.
Federal prosecutors accused two Luzerne County judges of taking more than $2 million in kickbacks from Mericle, the builder of a pair of for-profit youth detention centers. Former Judges Mark Ciavarella Jr. and Michael Conahan are serving lengthy prison sentences for their roles in the “kids for cash” scandal.
Mericle, who pleaded guilty to failing to report a felony, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 26. ....
