MSNBC'S Lockup Extended Stay, OC Version, to Debut Saturday Night

Clarence Butterfield, Daughter Killer, Reality TV Star
We've been waiting for this a long time: "MSNBC's popular behind-bars reality show Lockup Extended Stay debuts tomorrow at 7 p.m. Pacific Time." In case the name of the program doesn't ring a bell, you've probably seen it while flipping the channels some evening, trying to find actual news, and instead watching a soft-spoken, bespectacled man in a prison uniform apologetically describe how he killed his parents and ate their brains for breakfast.

Yeah, that show.


The show's producers spent more than 50 days inside the OC Jail system, which houses roughly 7,000 inmates, making it one of the nation's mega-jails. They filmed enough material to produce six one-hour episodes, the first two of which were previewed last December. The remaining shows will premiere on four consecutive Saturdays beginning on March 19. Not surprisingly, the description of the six episodes sent out by the network read like something out of OC Weekly's Scariest People edition, or maybe just our Navel Gazing archives.

First, there's Clarence Butterfield, the straight-up wackjob who tortured and killed his daughter, and then stuffed her naked body into an ice chest in his trailer, where it remained for two years. According to MSNBC, Butterfield denies any wrongdoing and "claims to be a devout Christian and says he was hoping a miracle would bring her back to life." In episode two, we meet Daniel Wozniak, the student actor who went batshit loco and killed two friends, dismembering their bodies before tossing one of their torsos in a theater where he once performed, all in order to steal their money and "pay for his upcoming wedding and honeymoon."

The series doesn't just focus on nutjobs and accused murderers, however; it also includes  some sobering profiles of folks who are behind bars thanks to addiction, including 38-year-old alcoholic  Ryan Abbey, serving time for drinking on probation and resisting arrest. You can watch a clip of his interview here.  

And what would this show be without a peek at the folks involved in the bloodiest murder ever to take place behind bars in Orange County? On April 2, we'll meet Jared Petrovich and Stephen Carlstrom, two defendants in the October 2006 murder of John Chamberlain, whom they and other inmates believed was a child molester and who died at the hands of dozens of prisoners. You can read my stories based on exclusive interviews with them here and here. It'll be interesting to see if the words "Deputy Kevin Taylor" come up in that episode. Presumably, he wasn't available for an interview, since unlike the prisoners charged in the crime, Taylor, who allegedly outed Chamberlain as a suspected child molester, just lost his day job.

I just wish the Orange County courts would recognize addiction as the disease that it is, and reprimand these people to get the help they need, not further punishment. Stupid as hell.

I did time in OC they treated me good. I think though they could save a lot of money and just have correctional officers instead of peace officer working the jail. Maybe some older folks

Honest to god the OC Sheriffs dept and consequently the OC Jail is corrupt as all hell. If you think its filled with young deputies who are nothing but honest in their day to day shall we say care of inmates then this is your wake up call boys and girls.

These are young kid deputies for the most part and to say they abuse and mistreat inmates is a huge understatement. A very large percentage of these deputies commit daily crimes of civil rights violations and actual Penal Code Crimes for assault and battery amongst a host of crimes daily in the OCJ

Yes it would be right to say many deputies are actually criminals wearing the uniform. But since it goes unreported or even reported but they all have each others backs it goes on unchecked
