Philadelphia Judges Face Ticket-Fixing Charges



HARRISBURG – The Philadelphia Traffic Court has been criticized for having two tracks of justice – one for the politically connected and one for the public.

Today, it appears one of those tracks might lead to federal prison.

News reports Thursday morning indicate that at least three and as many as 11 people connected to corrupt dealings at the Traffic Court face indictment.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that three former judges on the court have turned themselves into the FBI on Thursday and expect to be charged with fraud and corruption, likely in connection to a probe the feds began in 2011.
