Update: Pennsylvania's Juvenile Detention Center Case

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

The Takeaway follows up on a story the show covered in February: the tale of hundreds of children and teenagers sentenced to juvenile detention centers in Pennsylvania. Local judges were participating in a multimillion-dollar kickback scheme for sending teens to privately run youth detention centers. One of those children is 17-year-old Hillary Transue. Her mother Laurene Transue joined The Takeaway in February and is on the show again to talk about the latest events in the case.

What was that all about? What latest events? Who prepared this report? This was totally uninformative.
