HomeTVMauryJudge Orders Men to Watch Maury Luke Kerr May 13, 2009 7 Comments One inventive judge is ordering men to watch Maury as part of their probation for late child support. While I have no sympathy for the men on probation being forced to watch the show, I do feel sorry for the probation officers who have to listen to their parolees discuss the talk show. Imagine how those conversations must go. A Michigan judge, inspired by watching the syndicated talk show Maury, has sentenced several dozen men so far this year to watch the show as part of their probation for overdue child support. The defendants must watch the show and discuss episodes with their probation officer. Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree says he took over the "deadbeat dads docket" in January after watching "too much of this terrible daytime TV" over the holidays. Watching episodes of Maury, he said Monday, "was an eye-opener for me," and inspired him to use the show to help defendants realize the error of their ways. "They see that people who laugh at that show are laughing at them," he said. "I’m trying to hold up a mirror." 7 Responses daisyclover1938 May 13, 2009 Judge Orders Men to Watch Maury Now THAT’S punishment! Log in to Reply dmfj May 13, 2009 Maury watching would probably be good for them. Half of them might get paternity tests and find out they aren’t even the father of the kids they aren’t paying for.

I REFUSE! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 May 13, 2009 That just nasty, LOL. I hope Sharon finds out her baby daddy on Maury, LOL. Log in to Reply TV Gord May 13, 2009 Whoa! Shouldn’t they have the option of going to death row instead? Cruel and unual punishment indeed! Log in to Reply eriklovessoaps May 13, 2009 Ridiculous.
