Florida judge gives juvenile delinquents creativity hours

February 25, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
One Florida judge has an unusual approach to reforming juvenile offenders.

The Broward County judge brought college fraternity brothers into court to show delinquents that education doesn't have to be dull.

The judge also doled out some unusual punishments by giving offenders community service hours, including things like rapping and writing poetry.

She says the more time they spend doing stuff like this, the less time they spend on the streets getting into trouble.
