Kid Criminals
Channel 4

In this exceptional series we meet the teenagers behind bars in Indiana’s girls' and boys' prisons. In Indiana, children as young as 12 years old are locked up, but by taking a revolutionary approach and prioritising treatment over punishment, teens can get out in months, even after serious crimes such as murder.

We meet America’s youngest criminals: the two best friends who are both sex offenders, the teen who says he’s addicted to violence, and the girl who committed arson that killed three children.

An intimate and moving portrayal of the teenagers, their families and the prison staff who are all hoping to turn the juveniles’ young lives around.
