CROWN POINT | Lake Juvenile Judge Mary Beth Bonaventura's court will soon go back before the cameras.
The Indiana Supreme Court has given documentary filmmaker Karen Grau permission to shoot six one-hour documentaries on the topic of how juveniles become involved in serious crime and reoffend.
The documentaries are scheduled to air next year on MSNBC.
Judge Bonaventura and her court were last featured in February 2007 in "Juvies," an eight-part documentary series on MTV, for which Grau was creator and executive producer.
Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard said in a written press release, "The court is always evaluating how it can more effectively help children and families in trouble. With that in mind, it is important to keep citizens informed about the issues facing the juvenile justice system. A national broadcast produced by a respected journalist is one avenue to promote that understanding."
