One inmate is attacked; another, who's known for violence, keeps the staff on alert; and a third awaits trial for first-degree murder. Also: the jail takes preventive measures to keep a group of youngsters from entering the system.
Authorities investigate a violent altercation between inmates; an inmate tries to send a message to his girlfriend, whom he allegedly shot by accident; two cellmates deal with drug addiction and motherhood.
An inmate who carried pre-jail grudges with him inside and two jailed brothers, one of whom is due for release, are the focus of the first episode of the series about life inside Boston's Suffolk County Jail.
