'Beyond Scared Straight': Treszura Watches Her Mother Plan Her Funeral (VIDEO)


First Posted: 01/06/12 07:34 AM ET Updated: 01/06/12 10:14 AM ET

Sometimes trying to scare sense into juvenile delinquents by taking them to prison isn't enough. On "Beyond Scared Straight" (Thu., 10 p.m. EST on A&E), Treszura got to see the next step in the intervention process. She didn't seem to be "getting it," which led the authorities and her mother to worry that she'd go back to the bad behaviors that got her into the system in the first place.

So Treszura was taken to a funeral home, where she was told to sit silently and watch her mother planned her funeral. The grim exercise was supposed to make her think about how her choices -- like abusing prescription drugs and alcohol, sleeping around and running away from home -- could easily turn this make-believe scenario into a reality for her poor mother.

By the end of her time in the Scared Straight program, authorities didn't feel Treszura had earned a certificate to help clear her legal record, but a check-up a couple of months later showed that she was displaying marked signs of improvement. Perhaps it simply took longer for reality to sink in.

"Beyond Scared Straight" airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. EST on A&E.
