Lamont Cathey, 17, has also cost them more than a million dollars in medical bills, after being arrested for allegedly playing a part in robbing a pizzeria and has been there 16 months after his $5,000 bail failed to get paid.

His lawyers claim he needs long term psychiatric treatment and it’s hard to disagree with them.
