Looked fascinating by the trailer. Though I wish you review more documentaries.

I'm reminded of an episode of Law and Order: SVU which was likely inspired by this story. Basically this judge was giving harsh sentences to minors and sending them to this detention center run by her cousin or something in exchange for kickbacks.

Your actually think of the tv series Cold Case which did something similar.

No this was definitely an episode of SVU but it wouldn't surprise me if Cold Case tackled similar material. I've watched some of that show but I'm as big on it as some are.

I'd believe both series did it. I've never seen CC, but I remember the SVU episode (my wife loves that show) largely because Swoosie Kurtz played the judge.

I know about this case through an episode of The Good Wife.
