tv   Lockup Fairfax Extended Stay  MSNBC  April 23, 2016 11:00pm-12:01am PDT

11:00 pm
due to mature subject matter, viewer discretion is advised. turn around, face away from me. i need you down on the ground. put your hands behind your back, do it now. >> the emergency response team is deployed when a mentally ill inmate soils his cell and refuses orders. >> do not resist! >> do not resist! >> i fall on the ground and he stomps me right in the face. >> vicious assault sends another inmate to the hospital. >> that dude [ bleep ] me up bad.
11:01 pm
>> definitely a girly girl when it comes to dressing up. >> a fresh face joins the female unit. >> do you think you belong in here? >> no. >> and she soon finds herself in the middle of an investigation. >> has anyone offered you medication? >> no. >> i heard you still do the splits. >> and an old-timer proves that she's still got the moves. >> she'll just drop it like it's hot. >> i was like, oh, my goodness. >> ooh! about 15 miles west of the washington monument is fairfax county, virginia, where george washington himself built his estate, mt. vernon. some 270 years after the county formed, another bit of history
11:02 pm
was made with the election of its first female sheriff. >> being the first female sheriff is special, because i have the opportunity to not only be a role model for young women, but also to move an agency forward that i've had the opportunity to work with for many, many years. >> sheriff kincaid's largest responsibility is overseeing the jail facility, where she began her career as a corrections deputy 26 years earlier. the fairfax county adult detention center houses 1,200 men and women, most of whom are only charged with crimes. they're awaiting trial at the resolution of their cases. but the majority of them have been here more than once. nationally, the bureau of justice statistics estimates that about two-thirds of released inmates are incarcerated again within three years. the new sheriff says she wants to change that. >> these are our neighbors. these are, you know, folks that we live around.
11:03 pm
so what i'm hoping to accomplish is to establish some type of case management system, post release, that once they do get out, there are resources provided to them and someone that can be there to provide any other opportunities to help them once they get out. >> brenda brewer has been in and out of the jail for more than 30 years with seemingly no exit from the revolving door. >> i see her. >> i've known brenda brewer since i have worked in the jail. i think we started coming here at the same time. you running the show in here? >> i try to keep them on their toes. >> i appreciate that. >> i guess this is her second family, if you will. and this is what has become her life. >> how many times would you say you've been arrested here in fairfax county? >> i'd say 100 -- about 160-some times. i have a real bad, bad record.
11:04 pm
that's all my whole record is. shoplifting, that's all. >> brewer is charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property with intent to sell. >> somebody cheating or something because i ain't got nothing. >> she says she plans to plead guilty and hope for the best. >> she's got a 4. >> hit. >> and though her record involves a variety of convictions, she still says shoplifting is the anchor of her criminal life. >> i wear a girdle, and i make my own skirts. the girdle come all the way down to my ankle and i would put stuff in there and i come out of store. you can't tell i've got nothing on me. sometimes i have 20 pair of jeans on me at one time. one time i stole 31 pair of gucci shoes. i had the gucci loafers, gucci sandals and the gucci tennis shoes. >> man, i'm hungry, golly.
11:05 pm
>> brewer says she usually sells the stolen items for money to feed a heroin and cocaine addiction she developed at age 22. 40 years of drug use has destroyed her teeth. >> i ain't got no teeth. this here is my gums. >> brewer says she also suffers from diabetes and had to start using a cane because of back problems. but when it comes to flexibility, she can still show up some inmates young enough to be her grandchildren. >> i heard you still do the splits. now -- >> hold this. >> i mean, i was kind of stunned at first when i first saw her do it. i was like, oh, my goodness. >> let me do it the other way too. >> she's an old lady, you know. she has a cane. i can't do the splits. and here she is, doing the splits. >> go! >> i'm more amazed she can get up from them. she'll just drop it like it's hot just like that. >> and then bounce on it and get
11:06 pm
up. and you wouldn't know that i had a bad back in doing all that. >> that's right. >> that's why i won't get well, because i'm hard-hitting. >> although she's got funny stories and she can be very entertaining, the fact that she has spent the majority of her life locked up is sad. >> okay. i'll see you. >> you take care. >> all right. >> you take care. >> being locked up is often more than just sad. caleb bumgardner recently discovered it can be life-threatening. >> i was assaulted up on the fourth floor. dude called me out, said i was snitching on him. never even talked to the dude. don't even know who the dude is. i've never had my ass whipped before. and that dude [ bleep ] me up bad. he hurt me.
11:07 pm
>> bumgardner was on probation for attempted robbery when he was taken into custody for failing a drug test. he was here for only nine days when he says his assailant accused him of being a snitch. >> i was sitting in the cell with a bunch of people. we were just talking. he walks by and says somebody is snitching on him. and he was like, it's probably you. he's like, because you were gone yesterday for an hour. >> bumgardner says he left the unit not to snitch, but because he had a visit. >> tried talking to the dude and i was like, you need to think about what it is you're saying. like, when have i ever talked to you? i don't even know what the [ bleep ] you're here for. >> bumgardner says a short time later, the inmate attacked him in his cell out of view of staff. >> pushed from behind, slammed my face in the wall, hit right here, i fall on the ground. he stands up and he stomps me in the face. knocks me clean out. i woke up, i had people coming in the cell and i was fading in and out of consciousness.
11:08 pm
they rushed me immediately to the hospital. >> bumgardner wound up with a fractured rib and injuries to his eye and jaw. he spent a night in the hospital and is now in the jail's medical unit, as staff continues to investigate the assault. >> this was just like a random act of hatred. a lot of things are justified in life. but there was no justification in this. like, this was just that random. i couldn't even believe it when it was happening. i'm just like, what in the hell? >> coming up -- >> you don't know his name. what does he look like? >> black dude, dreads. >> officers gather what they can from caleb bumgardner. and -- >> the inmate took his fecal matter and wrote some threatening gestures about killing. >> staff must deal with a mentally unstable inmate.

11:12 pm
somebody once said that to come into a jail when your brain is working normally under the best of circumstances is really unpleasant. to be in jail when you are mentally ill or your brain is not working properly is often brutal. >> like most jails, the fairfax county adult detention center must cope with a growing population of mentally ill inmates, due to an ever-decreasing number of health facilities equipped to treat them. >> here in northern virginia, it's a population of about 3 million people, and we have one state hospital with 129 beds. in this facility, we're treating anywhere from 200 to 300 of them. that's a lot more than 129 beds. so this institution right here is de facto the mental health care safety net, if you will, of northern virginia. >> jails began to see more mentally ill inmates as far back as the 1970s.
11:13 pm
that's when many state hospitals and community mental health centers were closed due to funding cuts. along with court rulings that made it more difficult to involuntarily institutionalize or treat the mentally ill. >> oftentimes, people are arrested for behavior that they have done. oftentimes as a result of not taking care of their mental illness. for instance, not continuing on their meds. not following up with outpatient treatment. and as a result, they get arrested for various and sundry charges and end up as an inmate. >> and now one of those inmates is in an apparent state of crisis. >> the inmate took his fecal matter and smeared it throughout the cell, on the floor, on the cell window. he wrote some threatening gestures about killing and whatnot. that also gives us the idea that he may want to hurt himself.
11:14 pm
>> okay, stick your hands out, both of them. both, both. >> we were able to negotiate with him. the agreement was he would be escorted to the shower, given the opportunity to shower. his cell would be cleaned and sanitized, and he'd return to that cell. and he's agreed to cooperate and cease all the banging and unruly activity. >> okay. come on. >> the inmate is covered with a tear-proof gown known as a suicide smock and escorted to a nearby shower to clean off. >> alrighty. all right. we'll be back for you, okay? so you get a nice long shower. clean yourself up, all right? >> how often do you see stuff like this? >> down here, because of the nature of the housing, it's quite frequently. it's normal down here. the smell, the nature of the inmates being housed down here, this is all normal.
11:15 pm
>> trustees are inmate maintenance workers like craig hopta. >> usually it's not a whole bunch of work. but the last week and a half, two weeks since the gentleman's been here, it's been quite a bit of work. this is the fifth or sixth time in two weeks that he's done this. that's nothing compared to what he's been doing. usually it's up on the ceiling, as high as he can get it. or he'll take globs of it and throw it in the vents or at the camera. that -- i'm not even mad at that. that's okay. i'm okay with that. jail's mental health staff will not comment on their treatment of individual inmates. but they say treating the mentally ill in jail is a growing and daunting challenge. >> a lot of times people come into the jail at the worst point in their life. and that's no different for the mentally ill. off medications.
11:16 pm
so once we've identified that there is a mental health issue, we need to work to keep them safe. but our primary goal when someone comes in is to stabilize them and to identify what they need and then to try to medicate and/or offer services that can help them. >> just another day in fairfax. this is all the excitement you'll get. >> two days earlier, caleb bumgardner experienced the wrong kind of excitement. he was assaulted by an inmate he says he didn't even know. >> dude called me out, said i was snitching on him. never even talked to the dude. don't even know who the dude is. >> you don't know his name. what does he look like? >> black dude, dreads. >> now in the report, it said that bumgardner couldn't identify the person who attacked him. just said that he was a black male with dreadlocks and he was on the upper tier. the deputy locked the block in and conducted an investigation. to do that investigation, he
11:17 pm
determined that it was inmate andre bell that had actually assaulted mr. bumgardner. >> andre bell, in jail on charges of robbery, malicious bodily injury and use of a firearm and felony to which he has pled not guilty, denies assaulting bumgardner. >> 100% not guilty. >> well then why are you down here if it wasn't you? >> because they found me guilty of it anyway. >> there was a witness that the deputy talked to. that witness identified bell by name that he was the one who assaulted inmate bumgardner. >> sergeant taggart gave bell 20 days of disciplinary segregation for the assault on bumgardner. that means bell will be confined to a single person cell and have his possessions taken, except for one religious book. his mattress will be removed from his cell during the day, and all his meals will consist of what's known as nutritional loaf, except on sundays. >> if you beat this guy up, would you tell me? >> no.
11:18 pm
>> why not? >> messing around in fairfax county, no telling what the [ bleep ] they would do. probably bring some [ bleep ] up, probably find way to get me in some extra [ bleep ]. i would rather not admit guilt to anything in fairfax county. >> bumgardner can still press criminal charges against bell, but says he probably won't. >> i'm not trying to be in this jail and press charges on somebody and then [ bleep ] just happens all over again a bunch more times. that's just how it is. >> coming up -- >> it sucks not having a selection and variety of clothes in front of you every day. and to wake up to the same jumper. >> a new arrival in the female unit quickly learns the many limitations of jail life. and -- >> he's creating a biohazardous situation in his cell. he's smearing fecal matter and throwing urine out from
11:19 pm
underneath the cell. >> the troubled inmate acts out again. but this time he refuses orders to exit his cell, prompting a stronger response. it's time to prove ourselves as men!
11:20 pm

11:22 pm
like those at jails across the nation, most inmates at the fairfax county adult detention center have been incarcerated more than once. sabrina monahan, however, is a first-timer who only arrived here a few days earlier. >> a nightmare. it's a living nightmare. it's horrible. definitely make you walk a super straight path. oh, my gosh. >> monahan says police stopped her for a traffic violation and asked to search her car. >> i said, sure, i have nothing to hide. not thinking i had anything in my car, but i did. >> monahan says the opiates found in her car weren't hers.
11:23 pm
but she pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance to avoid a possible felony conviction. if found guilty in trial. she was sentenced to three months. and because it's a misdemeanor, she'll only have to serve half of that. and while she says these drugs weren't hers, she does admit to recreational drug use. >> now that i'm here i can't, but before i was here, i did a little bit. oxycodone, xanax, trazodone, my favorite. >> monahan says she's been arrested two times in the past for drug possession, but the charges were dropped. and this is her first time in jail. >> it sucks not having a selection or variety of clothes in front of you every day and to wake up to the same jumper. i'm a fashionista. i like to have a lot of nice clothes. i do have a lot of nice clothes, shoes. definitely a girly-girl when it comes to dressing up. i literally haven't slept since i got here monday, five days.
11:24 pm
because i'm forever starving. i don't eat the food. there's no salt. there's no flavor at all. the girls usually say they're ramen noodles, the packets. there's no salt on any of the food or vegetables. they'll use the packets and keep for salt. that's a good idea. >> ramen noodles and other snack foods can be purchased from the jail's commissary twice a week. >> luckily i have loving, caring parents. so the minute i got here i got moon on my books. $300 in my account. lemonade, hot chocolate. 15 coffees. got to have coffees. >> but monahan has discovered that abundance can also bring unwanted attention. >> it's just amazing how the people here, like, when they know you have two bags when no one else normally will get two full bags of stuff, athens when you make your friends. it's fake here. you can't expect a good friend here. inmates. you know what i mean?
11:25 pm
just got to watch your back, that's all. >> do you think you belong here? >> i don't know. no. >> what are you guys playing? >> spades. >> do i look down on anyone here? i try not to judge anyone. i don't want to be judged myself. what if i was being judged? >> have you had a chance to give her any advice since she's new? >> you have to ask. while monahan is considered the new girl on the cell block, brenda brewer says she's had well over 100 stays here. while her presence often brings smiles to others, she says her life has a dark and painful side that she dreams of sharing someday in a book. >> i do think there's something out here that god wants me to do and that's to publish that book. because there's some stuff in that book that will make the world cry that happened to me back in the day that i never
11:26 pm
said anything about. i was raped. and i was able to get up and walk away. i guess you don't get over it, but you just don't think about it. and i think that's why i stayed with drugs. because all of that blocked it all out. but i don't want to do this no more. i don't want to steal no more. >> how are you guys doing? okay? >> brewer acknowledges that in her younger days, she wasn't interested in programs offered by the jail to help inmates stay out. but now at age 62, she wants to take advantage of the ged program and get a certificate of high school equivalency. >> if i said find the difference of your age and my age, find the difference in our ages, what would we do? add, subtract, multiply or divide? >> subtract. >> subtract, right. >> she's probably the oldest
11:27 pm
woman i've had in this class. and she keeps coming back. so i'm assuming she really wants to get this. brenda's working at a lower level. she didn't go very far in school. >> ain't been in school since god knows when, so a lot of this stuff i'm not up on. >> okay, so it's a difference again. right? >> subtract. >> subtract, good. >> she says she's really motivated this time. she's got a lot of work to go, a lot of -- i mean, she can't be working at third and fourth grade level and be ready to pass a high school equivalency in a matter of months. but maybe down the road. >> coming up -- >> all the new people that are coming in here are flocking to me. i don't know why. hopefully it's not for my commissary. >> sabrina monahan learns that having support from the outside can be body an asset and a danger in jail. and -- the emergency response team is deployed to remove a troubled inmate from his cell. it's time to prove ourselves as men!
11:28 pm
11:29 pm
and as fans of awesome tv shows! because we are the couch-dwellers,
11:30 pm
the binge-watchers, the work-skippers! and we refuse to waste the greatest tv week this proud nation has ever known! but time is scarce my friends, so fetch your fancy voice remotes and join me! three, two, one... watchathon! big is back. xfinity watchathon week now until april 24. the greatest collection of shows free with xfinity on demand.
11:31 pm
due to mature subject matter, viewer discretion is advised. inside the fairfax county adult detention center, caleb bumgardner has spent the last week in the medical unit, recovering from a brutal assault that left him with a fractured rib and injuries to his eye and jaw. >> the doctor told me that i was healed up and ready to go. cleared for population. probably going to take a while
11:32 pm
for the red to go away in my eye. i mean, i feel lucky. from what they told me, the guy could have killed me. >> bumgardner is less concerned with himself than with his fiancee and the baby they're expecting in less than a month. >> she said, at any time i feel i could have the baby. she's probably not going to make it nine days until my court date. >> bumgardner is in jail on a probation violation. he could receive up to five years in prison, but hopes the judge will go easy on him. >> the birth of my son. that's a once in a lifetime thing. and that's going to be my whole argument when i go to court. but, you know. my lawyer told me that the judges don't really give a [ bleep ] about stuff like that. >> bumgardner will soon move back to a general population unit. but andre bell, the inmate jail officials say assaulted bumgardner, is still in disciplinary segregation. >> this [ bleep ] is like medieval days when they threw you in the [ bleep ] dungeon. this ain't no [ bleep ] cell. this is horrible. >> except for one religious book, inmates in disciplinary segregation are allowed no personal possessions or any
11:33 pm
other privileges. they even have their mattresses removed during the day. >> what is the purpose of taking your mattress? that's just torture. this is what little bit of stuff they leave you with. they take all your clothes and [ bleep ] leave you with two t-shirts, two pair of boxers. i got my toilet tissue wrapped up in here to use as a pillow. and i wrap that all up in my bag. use that as a pillow. >> the main goal is voluntary compliance or disciplinary segregation does gain compliance. they might think about it the next time before they break a rule in the jail. >> and bell admits that segregation has had an impact. >> i ain't doing [ bleep ] in jail. nothing. i'm staying in my lane. i'm not associating with nobody else in jail. i ain't having no conversations with anybody else in this [ bleep ] jail. i'm good. i'm chilling.
11:34 pm
>> it's been a different story for a mentally ill inmate who has been housed in an isolation cell. these cells are stripped down to prevent self-injury. and for this particular inmate, things seem to be deteriorating. >> the inmate took his fecal matter and he wrote some threatening gestures about killing. >> mental health staff does not comment on their treatment of individual inmates. they do say, however, that they frequently treat and provide medication to inmates in need. and now this particular one has alarmed staff again. >> he's creating a biohazardous situation in his cell. he's smearing fecal matter and throwing urine out from underneath the cell. we've been tasked by lieutenant clark to put him in the chair. >> since the inmate refuses orders to leave his cell, the sheriff's emergency response team has been deployed to extract him. >> a cert will be called out any time that there's a weapon or if
11:35 pm
the person is not compliant. the squad is supposed to sit there and go through all the steps. try to talk to him, try to reason with him. once cert shows up, all that's done, he's now under our control. if he's going to comply, he'll put his hands behind his back, the team will enter, cuff him up safely, move him. if he's not going to comply, we'll soften him up with electronic control devices, pepper spray, pepper-dispensing systems. pin him, cuff him and move him. any questions? all right, go word's whiskey. all right. >> we have the ability to overwhelm somebody by sheer numbers, by our training. and that's what we do. again, to keep everybody safe. >> i need you to turn around, face away from me, and lay down on the ground. put your hands behind your back. do it now. keep them there. do not move. you understand? >> whiskey.
11:36 pm
>> do not resist! >> do not resist! >> leg secure. >> leg secure. >> all secure? >> yep. >> one, two, three. coming out. >> the inmate will be placed in restraint chair where he will remain until his cell is cleaned up and he has calmed down. like county jails nationwide, fairfax faces ever-increasing demands to house mentally ill inmates who are unable to get help elsewhere. >> our priority is to stabilize persons who come in. we need to identify them and then work to keep them safe. that's our main goal here. sometimes that results in isolating them and then trying to get records from elsewhere to make sure we understand who this person is and put the pieces
11:37 pm
together to identify what this person really needs. and then trying to establish some kind of relationship with them so that we can continue getting them through the process. and that can be difficult for everybody. what i believe that mental illness is reaching epidemic proportions in our country. nobody wants to pay attention to it. but i think we're going to have to. and the clash between the criminal justice system and mental health is probably going to be the place where we eventually are going to say enough and try to come together and figure out a better system. >> while the mentally ill represent an increasingly high percentage of the population, most inmates wind up in jail due to their involvement with drugs. nicole boyce is one of the newest inmates in the female general population unit. >> i'm detoxing from heroin, mdma, suboxone and adderall. feel like a complete [ bleep ].
11:38 pm
you sweat a lot. you can't sleep. you take a shower to try and make the bugs stop crawling under your skin, but it doesn't help. the first couple days, i threw up a lot. >> boyce is serving a month and a half for a probation violation on an earlier grand larceny conviction. she's also charged with distribution of drugs to which she has pled not guilty. but boyce is considering entering a guilty plea in hopes it might get her into a drug treatment program instead of more time. >> i hope i get out and don't use, but i don't know yet. i've only been in here for ten days. i'd be lying if i said i didn't want to use. you know what i mean? it's scary. you know, people won't eat something with hair in it, but will go out on the streets and shoot up you something they don't know. >> you did that, right? >> uh-huh. yeah, i wouldn't eat food with hair in it, but i would go and shoot up heroin, yeah. it's crazy. because i was detoxing so badly, the doctor said we'll continue you on your medication, just have someone bring it in, and we'll eventually wean you off of it. and i was like, all right.
11:39 pm
>> according to sabrina monahan, who a week earlier was considered the new girl herself, boyce latched on to her right away. >> a lot of the girls are new here. i don't know, why but they like to talk to me. the first person they go for, for some reason. i guess i have that warming, welcoming way. even though i've never done time in my life. >> but inmate ginger lucas describes monahan another way. >> she's gullible. this is her first time around, you know. she's gullible. >> so what do you see happening to her? >> getting used. >> thank you. >> watch your -- >> yeah, thanks. >> all the new people coming in here are flocking to me. i don't know why. hopefully it's not for my commissary. but that's another thing, a danger you've got to watch out for. you get commissary, you're going to get a lot of enemies/friends. enemies meaning you tell them know, they're going to hate you. they're going to find ways to get you out of here.
11:40 pm
>> i have the chicken ramen noodles. >> that's cool. >> is that all you wanted? >> yeah, that's fine. >> you'll be surprised. some of the girls don't want to see a girl with commissary or the pretty girl or whoever -- the girl with the small amount of time here, because they are stuck here with a lot of time. so they'll do anything and everything to throw you under the bus, get you out of here. and it's just like -- >> i mean, she does bring a lot of commissary down. >> commissary girl. i guess i'm that one. >> they just ask her for stuff or, you know, give her attitude. majority of the girls here don't get commissary. and they try to find somebody weak to prey against to get commissary. >> who does that kind of thing here? >> i ain't putting no names on all that. >> coming up -- >> anything else you want to tell me? >> uh-uh. >> an inmate tips of staff, and sabrina monahan finds herself in the middle of a drug investigation. and -- >> some of those people in there have no morals.
11:41 pm
it's crazy. i just sit there and stress all day long. >> caleb bumgardner is placed in a new housing unit and it does little to allay his fears.
11:42 pm
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
inside the fairfax county adult detention center, caleb bumgardner was recently moved to a new general population unit for medical, where he was recovering from an assault. but he describes the vibe in the new unit as toxic. >> it's like hell. it's rough. they're just -- trying to cope with the people around you, i mean, most of those guys in there, you can't even have, like, a civil, decent conversation with them. some of those people in there are the type of people that have no morals. it's crazy.
11:45 pm
i just sit there and stress all day long. >> bumgardner says fear of being beaten up again isn't his only source of stress. now he has a new one. >> my son was born two weeks ago. i missed out on that. it sucked. i've got to deal with it, though. i get to meet my son saturday. visitation. visitation on the weekend. meet him for the first time through glass. it's going to suck. it's just how it is. >> and now it will be even longer before bumgardner holds his son. he recently went to court where a judge ruled on his probation violation on an earlier conviction of attempted robbery. >> he gave me a year for my violation. i only got like eight more months. i have to wait eight months to really meet him. >> and much of that eight months could be spent in the housing unit he now dreads. >> i mean, anything can happen in here. nothing you can do about it. that dude up on the fourth floor, he could have killed me
11:46 pm
in that cell and left me there. >> over in one of the female housing units, sabrina monahan, serving a month and a half for misdemeanor drug possession, has recently caught the attention of deputies. >> i noticed on tuesday that inmate monahan seemed a little out of it. like a little loopy or whatever. and i talked to her. she said that she had been drinking a lot of coffee. this morning my sergeant called me and told me that ms. brewer gave her information that inmate boyce is possibly giving medication to inmate monahan. >> brenda brewer, considered the housing unit's matriarch, says unlike most inmates, if she says something suspicious, she'll report it to deputies. >> the girls will say i'm a snitch, because i told them the truth. well then so be it. because if they ask me something i'm going to tell them the truth. i'm not going to lie. i'm not a person that just lie. lie, lie, lie. i don't have time for that. >> another inmate says she heard a similar story about monahan.
11:47 pm

11:54 pm
over the years. the latest to leave was sabrina monahan. having completed a short sentence for drug possession. before she left, monahan was subjected to a urine test. after brewer told staff she'd been trading commissary snacks for prescription drugs. while monahan passed the test and was exonerated, brewer admits to having dealt her own medication in the past. >> it all depends on the type of medicine they give me and if it make me high, i go out there and i see a white girl would like to get high and i sell my medicine to her. uh-huh. >> supporting her drug habit on the outside is what had led to brewer's 30-year-long revolving-door relationship with the jail. >> my pattern is to get out of here, go out there and steal, smoke crack dope. that's the first thing i look for. go get me a girl, put on a skirt and go shoplifting.
11:55 pm
that's my routine of getting out of prison to do. and i don't want to go back to that. >> but the odds are stacked against her. brewer recently dropped out of the jail's ged program. and she says she will soon enter a guilty plea on all the current charges. she could face up to six years in prison. and brewer says, in her case, that's not all bad. >> when i'm in prison i make a killing. always getting something. when i come -- like when i come back this time, they say [ bleep ]. brenda's back so we going to have us us some contraband. because that's what i'm used to going to prison. selling it to the girls down there. >> 22-year-old caleb bumgardner, serving one year for attempted robbery, is 40 years younger than brenda brewer.
11:56 pm
it's too soon to say if the revolving door is in his future or not. but after suffering a brutal assault from another inmate and missing the birth of his son, it's given him something to think about. >> my fiance, my brother, and my new son is coming to visit me. 1:00. >> have you seen your son? >> nope, not yet. he was born two weeks ago. >> have you seen the photograph? >> not yet. his baby pictures got taken i think this week. >> due to limited space and available security staff, visitation at the jail is limited and the policies are strictly enforced. >> inmates are allowed one 20-minute visit per week. visitor will preschedule that visit. visiting is held on saturdays and sundays. the inmate will come inside the door action they will find their visitor, sit across from them, and they each pick up a phone. they speak to each other. 20 minutes later the deputy who's working the post out there will end visiting.
11:57 pm
>> they live like an hour away from here, so it's a long drive. for a 20-minute visit, it's -- you know, it's crazy. so i just -- i'm like, you know, visit me like once a month. >> as bumgardner waits for his visit, the clock continues to tick. >> she said she's coming, she's coming. the only thing i could see is she hit traffic. they tell you when you set up the visit that if you're not here by a specific amount of time, that you can't have your visit. so she could have like hit traffic and then there's no point in driving the rest of the way up there. i guess now i have to wait longer to see my son. >> mr. bumgardner, we're going to have to cancel that visit. there's 25 people at least on every visiting list after this, so we're going to have to send you back upstairs. >> okay.
11:58 pm
>> come on out. >> about 15 minutes later, bumgardner's fiance amanda arrives with their newborn son and bumgardner's brother cameron. >> bumgardner? what time was your appointment? >> it was at 1:00. >> at 1:00? yeah, that -- that group's been closed and they're already upstairs. >> okay. >> so just try to be here about 30 minutes early, that way we can check you in and you won't run into the problem again, okay? >> thank you. >> all right, you're welcome. >> check-in time was 12:30 and we had run into traffic. i knew they wouldn't let us see him but figured i'd try anyways. >> i know -- chain in the car. she was probably driving really slow. >> he hasn't been able to see
11:59 pm
him yet. >> how hard was that for you? >> pretty hard. it's still really hard. >> it sucks. >> it is what it is. got to deal with it. it's just the same old -- same old crap every day.
