Judy Lorah-Fisher is Lou’s second of three guests for this broadcast. Judy describes her key role in bringing the Kids for Cash scandal to light. After her niece Amanda was placed in a juvenile detention center she discovered that hundreds of other children were being placed absent criminal offenses. Judy approached then-state representative John Yudichak in 2007 with a list of 153 Nanticoke youths from her hometown who had been stripped from their families, just as Amanda had been. Judy’s starting the whole process over again concerning Custody for Cash, visiting now-Senator Yudichak’s Harrisburg office on Monday with a few others to inform him of the injustices occurring in the realm of Family Court and child custody.
