After going to court and convincing a judge to keep one teenager out of jail, Siegal realized there was a more important service he could provide.In 1977, Siegal launched a court advocacy program to keep young people out of jail, collaborating with Angel Rodriguez, a longtime Lower East Side resident and youth worker at the local Boys Club.
