For the officers that handle the inmates on a daily basis at Last Vegas's Clark County Detention Center it can be hard to tell who is lying and who is telling the truth. Rosemary Vandecar has been accused of first-degree murder but claims she is innocent. Dubbed "Jail Mom", she extends her legal advice to other female inmates, making her influential in her unit. But when officers find something suspicious in her cell, she is stripped of her transportation job within the jail.
For the officers that handle the inmates on a daily basis at Last Vegas's Clark County Detention Center it can be hard to tell who is lying and who is telling the truth.
With new inmates constantly pouring in, one of the hardest jobs for officers is organizing, classifying, and keeping the inmates safe. Once inside, inmates divide themselves by things like race and gang affiliation, and a tense community of groups and cliques can be created. In this dangerous world, one of the most difficult ways to do time is to not fit in. In this episode, we spend time with three inmates who for one reason or another simply don't fit in, and who each must make difficult decisions and take different paths in order to survive their time in jail.
Las Vegas can be full of vices - both legal and illegal. Break the law and you're hauled into the Clark County Detention Center.
