The Pennsylvania Juvenile Justice system has undergone many changes since the late 2000's when the Commonwealth found itself in the middle of a national scandal knows as "Kids for Cash." In Luzerne County, two judges were found to be receiving kick-backs for sentencing juvenile offenders, most of whom were not represented, to extended amounts of time in privatized juvenile detention centers.
