Update: 7-Year-Old Car Thief to Appear on Judge Judy

The victim of a seven-year-old hit and run driver has broken his silence after learning the boy will soon be a guest on the "Judge Judy" show.

Latarian Milton was only seven when he stole his grandmother's car and went on a joyride through West Palm Beach, Florida.

He hit two cars along the way.

When he was interviewed he smiled and seemed unconcerned.

The story hit the news and led to a few snickers.

Donald peel isn't laughing.

He hasn't worked since Latarian broadsided his truck.

"It's hard, we're barely making it," he said.

He was fine with staying quiet until he saw Latarian on TV.

"It was upsetting. I was in the hospital. He said he didn't care about hurt or damage he had done," Peel said.

Peel's attorney is infuriated by the way the accident is being exploited for profit.

Jonathan Levy of the high powered personal injury law firm "Rosenthal, Levy and Simon" is trying to reach a settlement with two insurance companies, while watching a child who did a lot of damage, make money on it and crowd the local court system with what he says is a frivolous lawsuit.

"Here's an example of Judge Judy encouraging a suit to make it a real court case and get the kid on the show. This kid is being flown out to California on Judge Judy's dime," Levy said.

Donald Peel manages to be extremely forgiving given the fact he suffered back neck head and teeth injuries.

"He needs to know right from wrong not be glorified by the whole thing," said Peel.
