After a car accident left her mother paralyzed, 15-year-old Summer descended into a world of chaos that left her mother stunned. She was having sex with strangers, getting into fights and using drugs. In other words, she was a perfect candidate for "Beyond Scared Straight," before she found herself in more serious trouble.
For young Summer, one inmate really got through to her. Ice Mike was an intimidating man anyway for the diminutive teen, but it was his words that tore through her and brought out her tears.
"She paralyzed! And you doing the sh** you do?" he said, getting right in her face. "I ain’t got no mama! And you abusing yo mama! She paralyzed and you taking advantage of her!"
It was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for Summer. She got herself into counseling for drug abuse and stopped all of her wild behavior.
