This video from Debt Free Justice shares the experiences of young people who were introduced into the juvenile justice system due to court debts.

As Debt Free Justice explores in this video, when children are faced with unnecessary legal fees and fines, they are not given optimal justice system solutions. More times than not, the costs begin to pile up – leaving children hopeless, as seen in these stories from Tyler, Nykia, Adonijah, Dante, and Kristen.
