Former Judge Ciavarella Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison

This morning Federal Middle District Court Judge Edwin M. Kosik handed down the sentence against former Luzerne County Judge Mark A. Ciavarella sending him to prison for 28 years (336 months).  Ciavarella is 61 years old.  Judge Kosik also immediately remanded Ciavarella to prision as opposed to allowing him to go free on bail to put his affairs in order.

Currently, there are still no sentencing dates scheduled yet for other figures associated with this matter, including former Judge Michael Conahan and attorney Robert Powell.
