After a 5-year exceedingly complicated trial, Piper was sentenced to 15 months in a women’s penitentiary, which is where the journey truly begins. Throughout her time in prison, she gradually learns how to deal with, observe, and survive the prison system, while getting a trivial job, finding ways to maintain her rationality, and creating a few bonds with some of the female inmates along the way. She gained a plentiful amount of knowledge during her 13 months there (out of the 15-month sentence), such as keeping busy with a job and doing activities, while staying in the guard’s “good graces”, but, ultimately, she begins to realize that, like herself, the prisoners were caught up in this abnormal criminal system. As she begins to complete her sentence, she is brought back into the courtroom to testify another gang member that was involved in this debacle that landed her in prison in the first place.

When I think of the judicial system, I think of power and final decision making. In a sense, that concept can be scary. However, the judicial system by no means has as much power as one might think, and we can thank the Bill of Rights for that. Specifically, the 6th amendment is what protects us in a court of law.

Although his father wasn’t there, they continued to
