Two Pennsylvania judges have admitted to their lack of judgment after accepting close to $3 million in bribes to make sure that hundreds of young people received longer sentences, according to Reuters. PA Childcare and Western PA Childcare managed the detention centers were the juveniles were sent and paid the judges so they would receive harsh sentences for small infractions and the company in turn would receive an increase in government funds for their stay. The two male judges could spend up to seven years in jail. -CJ
