A former judge in Pennsylvania who faces federal racketeering charges in a "kids for cash" scheme agreed to plead guilty.  Michael Conahan will admit his role in a $2.8 million scheme involving placing juvenile offenders in for-profit detention centers to keep them full and getting pay-offs in return. Former judge Mark Ciavarella is also charged in the case. Last year, the state threw out the convictions of thousands of juveniles who appeared before Ciavarella between 2003 and 2008.
