IN THE CUSTODY OF STRANGERS 1982
U.S. TV film. Based on a true story, this made-for-TV movie examines how the U.S. criminal justice system screws over juvenile delinquent offenders. Although in this film the juvenile delinquent is a dopy jerk who kind of gets what he deserves.

Danny Caldwell (Emilio Estevez) is an angry, small-town California teenager whose father (Martin Sheen) has just been laid off and can't find a job. His mother Sandy (Jane Alexander) works in a convenient store to provide money for the family. One night Danny goes joy riding, gets drunk and smashes into a police car. The cops call his parents to pick him up at the police station but his dad thinks a night in jail will make his son realize the seriousness of his actions.

Due to a series of events during Danny's lockup, he gets charged with assault and is now looking at an extended jail term while a trial is scheduled and rescheduled. Meanwhile Danny's dad lands a job in Ohio and the family moves away with Danny in jail. The film then goes on to show how the messed-up juvenile justice system is overworked, understaffed and swamped with dead-end bureaucracy. But thems the rules! Filmed in Downey, CA.

Note: It appears director Robert Greenwald has a butt fetish! In one scene, the camera slowly pans the succulent tight-jeaned buttocks of girls browsing the LP bins in a record store. Martin Sheen, Jane Alexander, Emilio Estevez, Ramon Estevez, David Faustino, Kenneth McMillan, Ed Lauter, Matt Clark, Virginia Kiser, Jon Van Ness.
