Each week, the parole officers of Indianapolis Parole District #3 are challenged with not only monitoring their parolee clients, but with protecting the public, as well. This week on TV One's Parole Diaries, anger issues, narcotics and ongoing parolee challenges face Agents Bennett, Jackson, and Carter.
Agent Justin Bennett faces the challenging task of dealing with the anger issues of Tionna Bland, a young, but experienced, criminal. Tionna is a 25-year-old mother of three who has been in trouble since she was a young teen. Now on parole for theft and receiving stolen property, in addition to having a long history of being in and out of prison, Tionna has anger issues adding to her difficulties. In an interesting twist, Agent Bennett supervises both Tionna and her mother, Kimberly Bridgeforth, and, in unique approach to the situation at hand, Agent Bennett decides to team up with mother Kimberly, hoping they will be able to help Tionna keep her temper in check.
Agent Denise Jackson has her hands full keeping man-eating parolee Dawn Awyler off of the narcotic pills she was once addicted to. Dawn is a 46-year-old divorcee and, interestingly, was once the vice-president of a bank. However, after becoming addicted to pain killers, Dawn was arrested for prescription fraud, and spent 11 months in prison. Now, Agent Jackson is struggling to keep her client, who is not only fighting an addiction to pain pills but an ongoing, constant need for men, from going back behind bars. However, when Dawn shows up with a prescription for narcotics, all bets are off.
Parole Agent Gerald Carter has supervised sex-offender Henry Franklin for three and a half years, and there’s no end in sight. Henry is 26 years old, and has been in prison for six years. His offenses have landed him not just on parole, but on lifetime parole, with a stipulation that he is not allowed to be around young children for the remainder of his life. And, since he has been on Agent Carter’s supervision list, Henry has done well. However, he has now informed Agent Carter that he wants to get married—and have children at the wedding.
Will Agent Bennett be able to help Tionna get her anger under control? Will Agent Jackson send Dawn back to prison? And, what will Agent Carter do about Henry’s request to have children attend his wedding?
Parole Diaries airs on TV One on Monday nights at 8/7c.
