Take the money and run

Robert Powell, the owner of PA Child Care and good buddy of Luzerne County Judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan announced that his partner has bought out his interest in the Pittston Twp juvi jail. He also announced that he is out of the Hazleton Cargo Airport business that will probably never fly. The papers keep saying that PA Child Care has made "millions of dollars" off the county and now the FBI and IRS are on his ass along with a few of our esteemed jurists so it was probably a good business move to preserve his assets just in case the feds rake him over the coals.
