    It doesn't matter which side of this issue you may be on. Federal Judge Caputo should not be hearing ANYTHING that has to do with "Kids for Cash" or Luzerne County. This Judge was a paid Public Defender who worked for Luzerne County before he became a Federal Judge. IF anyone has any question as to how he is going to rule simply go to a Federal Case he handled titled "Marinello vs Luzerne County".
