Synopsis >

Orange County, California has traditionally been known for its conservative values, spectacular coastlines and tourist attractions. Reality television has also contributed to the county’s image, but it’s far more complex than any of that. Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens says, It’s probably not 'The Real Housewives of Orange County', and she should know. Among other things, she runs Orange County’s other gated community: The Orange County Jail. The greatest challenge for many inmates in the Orange County Jail is uncertainty. Unlike prison inmates who have already been convicted and sentenced for crimes they’ve committed, most jail inmates stand charged with crimes and are still working their cases through the court system. The process can take years, so some try to make their jail cells home. In this episode, a convicted murderer awaits his sentence, another inmate turns up with a pair of black eyes, and we take you to the one place in the entire jail where drama is seldom in short supply, Mod Q, which houses a variety of protective custody inmates, including a high percentage of homosexuals.
