Siblings Speak Out
Josh’s family weighs in. His brothers and sisters describe the Josh they know and how his encounters with the law have affected them. Could Kylee have played a larger role in the robberies than she claims?
Facing up to 20 years in prison, Kylee finally faces a judge for sentencing. Will the scales of justice tip in her favor? Follow her family to the conclusion of this emotional journey and find out.
Dr. Phil’s final thoughts: Parents, let me just make a word of caution here to you. Don’t assume that this kind of thing just happens to people that you read about in the newspaper or somebody on the other end of town. When drugs are involved, logic is suspended. Kids can make really bad decisions. You have to stay in tune to keep them from making those bad decisions. Stay tuned. We’ll continue to update this story.
