  • Summary:
    A&E's hit series "Beyond Scared Straight" profiles dramatic prison and jail deterrence programs aimed at keeping today's at-risk teens from becoming tomorrow's prisoners. Each one-hour episode focuses on a different existing "behind bars" program in the U.S. and follows four or five at-risk teens - before they attend the program, throughout their day behind bars, immediately afterwards - and then following up with them one-month later to see the lasting impact of the experience on their lives. A combination of confrontation, information and communication, these youthful offender programs put boys and girls of all ethnicities, ranging in age from 11-19, into intensive one-day "incarceration" sessions that show them the realities of life behind bars. This season, viewers will see things never seen before in this series: teens are kept in cells all night in a unique overnight program; a teen is thrown out for defiant, combative behavior; inmates are tasered and extracted from cells; and more. BEYOND SCARED STRAIGHT is about transforming the lives of young people through hope and second-chances. [+]more
