“Kids for Cash” Movie Coming to Theaters

The Juvenile Law Center has announced the release of the “Kids for Cash” movie.  “Kids for Cash” chronicles the Luzerne County, Pennsylvania judicial corruption scandal, which the Juvenile Law Center uncovered in 2007 and continues to litigate. The film is produced and directed by Robert May, who also produced “The Station Agent” and the Oscar-winning film “The Fog of War.”  The movie is being released first in major markets, such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and Denver, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and New Orleans.

The film highlights issues facing youth today, including harsh zero-tolerance policies that needlessly push kids into the justice system, the right to counsel for youth, and the emotional and financial burden of unnecessary juvenile justice system involvement.  The Juvenile Law Center continues to focus on these issues in the blog series, Lessons from “Kids for Cash,” at www.jlc.org/blog.
