Juvenile Detention Scandal Lands 2.5 Million Dollar Settlement In Pa – Three juvenile detention companies- PA Child Care, Western PA Child Care and Mid-Atlantic Youth Services Corp.- have settled a $2.5 million civil suit as a result of what they are calling a ‘kids for cash’ operation they were running. The companies allegedly worked with two PA judges and provided payment in exchange for juvenile kids to be sent away to the facilities for lengthy sentences. Often the sentences were for petty minor offenses. All juveniles who were sent to facilities between 2003 and 2008 are eligible to receive money for damages and those sent to one of the three facilities directly involved are eligible for even more money. One judge was convicted of racketeering and conspiracy and sentenced to 28 years while the other pled guilty to racketeering and was sentenced to 17 years.

Violin Played On Titanic Sold For $1.6 Million – A violin believed to have been played on the Titanic before it sank was auctioned to an anonymous buyer for $1.6 million over the weekend in Britain, which is a world record for an artifact from the doomed ship. The violin, which is now unplayable because of damage from the ocean water, is thought to have belonged to bandmaster Wallace Hartley, who famously continued playing “Nearer, My God, To Thee” on the Titanic’s deck with his fellow musicians as the ship was sinking. The violin, which was a gift from Hartley’s fiancee and has his name on it, is believed to have been found at sea with his body more than a week after the Titanic sank.
