Polk County, Florida -- Child abuse in the Polk County Jail -- that's what South Poverty Law Center alleges in a lawsuit.
Polk Sheriff Grady Judd says anyone who believes that claim needs a mental evaluation.
A trial is underway, and a judge will rule in a few weeks.
The lawsuit claims juveniles are living in harsh conditions.
Sheriff Judd says juvies and adults are separated by block walls, however, and the system saves $2 million a year.
