Department of Juvenile Justice psychiatrists possess troubled pasts

In the latest installment of the series "Drugging Delinquents," by the Palm Beach Post, reporter Michael LaForgia reveals that several doctors who counsel and medicate minors in state custody have their own troubled pasts. Psychiatrists with various legal transgressions have been hired by Florida's Department of Juvenile Justice and work directly with jailed children. Dr. Gold Smith Dorval was hired in 2007 and had pleaded "no contest" to a felony theft charge in 2004. Another doctor, who worked for the DJJ from 2008-2011, was disciplined in 2002 for over-prescribing medication that eventually led to a patient's death.
