Robert Mericle Reports to Prison

One of the highest profile defendants in Luzerne County’s “Kids for Cash” scandal reported to federal prison on Monday.

Businessman Robert Mericle will serve his time at a minimum security prison camp near Minersville in Schuylkill County where he reported on Monday afternoon.

Mericle was sentenced in April to one year behind bars and a quarter million dollar fine.  He admitted to knowing two Luzerne County judges took bribes to help keep open a juvenile detention center near Pittston.
