Sandy Fonzo

Her son, Ed Kenzakoski, was sentenced to 30 days in a juvenile boot camp by Judge Mark Ciavarella for a minor charge of having drug paraphernalia. Kenzakoski was 17 years old at the time and a star wrestler at his high school. Fonzo says her son’s sentence started him on a path to the adult court system that culminated in his suicide. She dramatically confronted Judge Ciavarella outside the courtroom when he was on trial for taking kickbacks.
