About The Film

KIDS FOR CASH is a riveting look behind the notorious scandal that rocked the nation when it first came to light in 2009. Beginning in the wake of the shootings at Columbine, a small town in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania elected a charismatic judge who was hell-bent on keeping kids in line. Under his reign, over 3,000 children were ripped from their families and imprisoned for years for crimes as petty as creating a fake MySpace page.

      These kids and parent’s lives were ruined and banksters happily laundered millions of dollars. Disgusting

    • You are absolutely right, but the senior/disableds problems have been going on for decades and the problems are well known and well entrenched and that’s part of the problem.

      I hope you saw the part where after sentencing Ciavarella, the woman screamed at him about the death of her son and Ciavarella would not even look at her.

  1. For decades? and no one did anything? And now, as much as is reported, it is still going on. and so hard to stop? I feel like we are maybe missing something and I dont know what>

    • Ken knows more about probate court going back 50 years, we should ask him. I know I had a case going back 10 years and that case was not good, but I was able to fight it off. These cases are completely nuts. Forcing elders into nursing homes left and right and stealing assets and property and then narcotizing the senior to death when the money runs out.
