Robert May says he felt compelled to do a documentary on the Kids For Cash scandal in Luzerne County. The award winning film maker spent the last four years researching and putting together a documentary he says everyone should see. May, from Luzerne County, told Eyewitness News, "This story impacts every community in the way we treat our kids. This became a scandal when money became involved because every community treats their kids in pretty much the same way. There is complacency in every community for allowing this to happen." Former Luzerne County Judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan are serving long prison terms for conspiring to send kinds to a private detention center in which they had a financial interest. They accepted millions of dollars in kickbacks in exchange for making sure kids were sent to the detention center. May is producer and director of the film entitled "Kids for Cash" and says it changed his life forever. He said, "I know have a different perspective in how I judge people and look at them when it comes to punishment." Terrie Morgan-Besecker a reporter for the Scranton Times Tribune newspaper worked as a consultant with May since she covered and broke many of the new details of the scandal as it unfolded in 2009. She said, "I think this is a documentary every parent must see. "
