After an epiphany in the courtroom a few months ago — where he shouted to a man with five kids from five women: “What the hell do you think this is, the Maury Povich show?” — Judge Wade McCree began ordering dads to watch the raucus show as a part of their probation.
For those who agree to make child support payments to stay out of jail, they now need to tune in at least once a month to the show, which features lots of wacky relationships, DNA testing and tears.
“Some of these men in my court watch the show and see how ridiculous
some of the deadbeats look, and then they realize it’s them,” McCree
Of course, Povich told the Detroit Free Press that he likes the judges creative solutions. Whatever boosts ratings, right Maury?
