KIDS FOR CASH is a riveting look behind the notorious scandal that rocked the nation. It exposes a shocking American secret: We as a country continue to bring hundreds of thousands of youth into the juvenile justice system for minor offenses – even though arresting, detaining and incarcerating youth is expensive, ineffective, causes everlasting damage to children and their families and has little impact on public safety. Beyond the millions paid and the high stakes corruption it exposes, KIDS FOR CASH highlights the need for system reform and continued community engagement.
