OK, its just one push back against an unholy tide of shit. But that is something? Right?QuoteThe Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.
That's one judge, and at least 4000 kids lives ruined. Restitution of $1.2 million.
That's $ 300/ Kid, split equally. I assume the logic here is that is a lot of money to a ten year old so it's appropriate.
Another angle is that this gives an indication of the scale of the horror. Assume 1 judge with similar sentencing attitudes per state. Be generous and assume there's no corruption.
That's a scary number, and that's being totally optimistic.
<sigh> Yeah that was pretty much my reaction too.
