Plot Synopsis

Featuring first-person interviews with the convicted women, their victims and families, and the people who brought the crimes to justice, PRISON DIARIES reveals the stories of women who ended up in prison. Each 60-minute episode features two or three women who each describe their harrowing journey, giving a glimpse inside the female criminal mind. The series features women who acted out of jealousy, love or hate, including: Emilia Carr, one of the estimated 63 women on death row in the US, convicted for the brutal killing of her romantic rival; Patricia Ignacio, sentenced to 15 years for 2nd degree murder; Shaina Sepulvedo, who created an elaborate plot to have her stepfather killed; Heather Stone, who has a history of abusing her girlfriends when she's intoxicated; Tammy Wiggins, who convinces her boyfriend to kill her husband; Bernadette Eadey, who seduced men in motels and robbed them at gunpoint with her husband; Leilani Mills, who convinced her teenage son to kill her fourth husband and for her other children to destroy the evidence; Jennifer Harris, who used her car to run over one of her lovers after he was allegedly inappropriate with her daughter; Tammy Fox, who was a stripper working with her drug dealer to setup one of her sugar daddies; Melissa Ordonez, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for her role in the fatal shooting of a drug dealer; and other women like Marcia Kelly, Julie Sallies, Bridgette Jones, and Belynda Goff.
