Lockup Extended Stay: Orange County Full Episode Guide

  • Every week about 1,200 men and women are arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail in southern California. It's the 7th largest in the U.S., and lies within two miles of America's most famous mouse. Some will be released within hours. Others could be here for years until their charges are resolved in court. In this hour: One inmate launches a near fatal attack after being in jail for less than an hour; a father accused of murdering his daughter admits to keeping her corpse with him for two years; and a female inmate keeps a grim secret from her two best friends.

  • Unlike prison, where all inmates have been convicted of a crime, the majority of jail inmates stand accused of criminal acts and are either on or awaiting trial. But the threat of violence is just as real in jail as it is in prison. Day to day management of the Orange County Jail in Southern California is up to Sheriff's deputies. Some work permanently at the jail while most others rotate through then return to street patrol. A select group of deputies comprise the Emergency Response Team -- a SWAT-like unit called in to action when inmates refuse orders or pose an imminent threat. They have their hands full with a sadistic murderer who transforms the jail, a roller derby queen who takes a hard fall, and one inmate who realizes that even a good day in jail can have a dark side.
