'60 Days In': Texas cop Ashley begins fight for justice as she risks exposing her true identity to the inmates
In this episode, Ashley, who is also a former military woman seems to gain a protector position among the women at the jail - something that could go against her, every easily.
This week on '60 Days In', undercover inmate and Texas cop Ashley returns from the verge of quitting after undergoing the humiliation of being left naked thanks to a guard's negligence - and stays, to bring her to justice.
"I am not going to let these other women fight alone," she tells the camera. She writes an official complaint and begs the official's help and the "angry" letter is sent to the Captain that eventually gets so much heat on the guard, Miss Williams, that she quits. In this episode, Ashley, who is also a former military woman seems to gain a protector position among the women at the jail - something that could go against her, every easily.
However, the entire debacle also gets other inmates suspicious of her and one of them is convinced she's on '60 Days In' - not a great thing for a police officer in a jail.
Previously, Ashley had made a DIY bra after she didn't get any underwear from the guards and was unable to shower for three days because she didn't have a change of clothes. Desperate, she decided to give the only pair of clothes she has away to the laundry when the corrections officer promised to be back with another one. But, Williams did not show up. It was her inmate Rita who rose to the occasion and helped her out with a shirt to cover her bottom.
Elsewhere in the women's pod, Shanese, the teacher for at-risk youth is still struggling with her gluten allergy and in the days she's been at The Etowah County Detention Center in Alabama, she's had salad and fruit once each. The hunger and lack of concern about her wellbeing by the authorities tears her spirit apart and she begs to quit the show. This means that Jennifer, a former stripper and born again Christian and Ashley are the only ones left to finish their time inside.
Meanwhile, in the men's pod, Matt, the former marine has already quit - leaving Alex and football star Dennis undercover. Alex, who is a political science major finds out in the worst way possible that jail isn't all that he thinks it is. Anxiety starts kicking in and he realizes what he's gotten himself into - from communal showers to real inmates, he's not quite sure how to deal with it all.
'60 Days In' airs at 9/8c on Thursdays on A&E.
