Plot Synopsis

Using archival footage, re-enactments, and interviews with family members, friends, journalists, law enforcement, and the culprits, FORBIDDEN chronicles the stories of everyday men and women who got a taste of the good life and couldn't let it go. And once they arrived, a downward spiral of corruption sucked them under. Each 30-minute episode features the story of a different criminal, including: Los Angeles teen Jemeker Thompson, who was on her way to becoming a track star, but instead joined her drug-dealer boyfriend to build an illegal empire; Peggy Jo Tallas, who dressed up as Cowboy Bob, robbing banks all over Southern Texas; Nancy Siegal, who won senior Jack Watkins' heart and his money, possibly getting away with his murder, too; Dallas family man Todd Becker, who was a thief keeping it all in the family; Jocelyn and her boyfriend, who traveled to Paris and the Caribbean after stealing their friends' and neighbors' identities; Lisette Lee, a self-proclaimed Samsung heiress, who earned a new title from a federal judge after smuggling marijuana; and many more good girls or good boy gone very bad.
