Believe in the power of Povich!
Judge Wade McCree in Detroit, Michigan, does!
Judge McCree has begun sentencing men who have been charged with not paying child support to watch Maury Povich's talk show, Maury, at least once a month to stay out of the clinker!
“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,” explained Judge McCree.
So what does Maury think about his show being used as a learning tool for the deadbeat dads?
“That is being very creative, and sometimes you have to be creative when you have a lot of social issues,” Povich laughed to reporters.
Povich even filmed inside the Detroit courtroom for an upcoming episode of Maury!
Wonder what the success rate is???
