Kids for Cash checks are "in the mail"

According to the, three years after filing suit, more than 1,600 juveniles and their parents who alleged the youths were wrongly incarcerated by former judge Mark Ciavarella have received their portion of a $17.75 million settlement reached with one of the defendants in the "kids for cash" lawsuits.

Attorney David Senoff, lead counsel for the plaintiffs, said checks totaling $11.6 million were mailed Monday to 1,067 juveniles eligible under an agreement reached in December 2011 with real estate developer Robert Mericle, the builder of PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care juvenile detention centers that were used by the county.

Checks totaling $606,925 also were mailed to parents of juveniles to reimburse them for costs they incurred for the incarceration of their children, Senoff said.
