External Link: official websiteIn this brand new series for ITV, Sir Trevor McDonald ventures inside two of Indianaâ€™s most dangerous female prisons, and witnesses a world of seduction and manipulation as inmates prey on each other and those who guard them. Trevor gets unique access to Rockville Penitentiary, the largest female prison in Indiana. Here hundreds of women are processed each week, both murderers and continual re-offenders alike. Trevor also goes to Indiana Womenâ€™s Prison, housing the most extreme cases. He meets some of the most dangerous offenders and women who will spend the rest of their life behind bars. Across the two episodes, Trevor speaks to mothers who have killed their own children, one of Americaâ€™s Most Wanted women, and a fugitive who was on the run for over 30 years before she was caught. He witnesses inmates who are so dangerous they require to be shackled at all times, and hears how convicts come to terms with watching their children grow up while they are behind bars. Many look likes angels, but this belies an often volatile and complex offender population.
