Kids locked up for failing to meet with dad to get physicals

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -

Three siblings who spent two weeks in juvenile detention for refusing to meet with their estranged father must undergo physical exams to stay at the summer camp to which a judge sent them.

Oakland County Judge Lisa Gorcyca said Monday that a doctor should visit the camp or their mother will take them to their pediatrician, to meet camp requirements. A court-appointed guardian told Gorcyca the children can't stay without the exams.

Gorcyca last month found the children -- ages 15, 10 and 9 -- in contempt of her order to spend time with their father and sent them to the juvenile facility.

They were later released to the camp. The judge said that was preferable until custody in the 2009 divorce is determined. A hearing is set for Wednesday.
