On the Season 2 finale of "Beyond Scared Straight" (Thu., 10 p.m. EST on A&E) 15 year-old Barry took a trip to Hampton Roads Regional Jail in Virginia.
Barry was in the program because of fighting and theft, and he was pretty confident that he'd easily be able to handle doing 10 years in jail.
However, after being cornered by convicted murderer Perry and his friends, Barry changed his mind. Challenged to a fight by the enormous convict, Barry found it hard to look him in the eye and quickly admitted that he was scared.
Then after being told his name was now "Betty," the teen broke down in tears. This just provoked even more abuse: "You crying already! We broke you down! And you could do ten years?"
So, was Barry "scared straight?" After his stay in jail he admitted, "I couldn't even do a day in here."
