Governor Corbett Signs Juvenile Justice Reform in Luzerne County
 
Governor Tom Corbett today took part in a signing of a new juvenile justice reform package designed to protect children within Pennsylvania's criminal court system. Senate Bills 815 and 818 were created in response to the 2008 Cash for Kids scandal that resulted in the wrongful incarceration of numerous juveniles and, ultimately, the imprisonment of two former Luzerne County judges. Four years ago, Pennsylvanians witnessed a scandal that shocked the conscience. Now, we are taking action to prevent future injustice against our children, Corbett said.
