Good Essays
Kids were put in juvenile for the most simplest minor offenses. Offenses such as arguing and disrespecting adults to getting into school fights. These little incidents were so minor and could had been resolved easily, yet teens got prison time for minor crimes. According to William Ecenbarger in his book Kids For Cash, he writes about the many different offenses that kids got into and how they were punished and treated for their minor offenses and put into juvenile, and how Judge Mark Ciavarella took advantage of this. Cases like a fifteen year old boy who gets charged for a misdemeanor for showing disrespect to his grandfather and being placed on probation.Even worse the kid was held there five days without a hearing.
