Powell says he was sqeezed

The lawyers for PA Child Care owner Robert Powell, who has been identified as Participant Number 1 in the bribery case of Luzerne County Judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella, contends that that he was a “victim of their demands for payment.”

From what I understand Powell has been singing to the Feds and even wore a wire to help bring them down. It sounds like like a classic case of someone getting pinched and turning informer.

What hubris. To think he believes the citizens of NEPA are so dumb that they would buy this. Is he going to try the insanity plea next!

You also have to question the timing - the day before the judges are to plead guilty.

I wonder if Mericle is going to try the same defense.
