Kid Criminals is sad and hard to watch, but not without hope.
‘I know right from wrong,’ explains Garrett Clutter, 15 [pictured]. ‘It’s just that I choose to do wrong.’
Garrett is in a unit for sex offenders at endleton Juvenile Correctional Facility in Indiana.
Among the staff at Pendleton is no-nonsense but gentle and insightful counsellor Tammi Prince, and watching her at work as this two-part documentary (first shown on C4 in 2015) begins is amazing.
We also meet William McConnell, 18, a repeat offender unhappy at facing another birthday inside, and Tavarius McNair, 14, who is on the verge of a breakthrough in his counselling sessions with Tammi.
Sad and hard to watch, but not without hope.
