Description

The Advocate reports on how federal grants have been recklessly spent by the East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Justice Court on high executive salaries. The stories reveal that the Straight and Narrow Drug Treatment Center, one of about 30 drug courts in the state, has failed to effectively supervise the drug-addicted children who graduated from the program. The investigation finds that the key players behind the faulty drug treatment programs - including two judges, an attorney and his roommate - are entangled in bizarre legal accusations of sexual harassment and racially motivated attacks.
