If 'OITNB' Characters Were Real People, This Is How Much Time They'd Serve
🎶 You've got [a whole lot of] time 🎶
In the first season of "Orange Is The New Black," Piper Chapman was sentenced to 15 months in prison for drug smuggling. Four seasons later, many viewers are left wondering why more Litchfield ladies haven't seen a release date. Aside from Taystee's short-lived season 1 release, only one other character has left Litchfield in 4 years. What gives? This is a minimum security prison, how long could their sentences be?
The geniuses over at TruthFinder have answered our burning OITNB questions with real life facts. In the rap sheet below, they've laid out each character's criminal charges, based on backstory episodes and info from the show, along with the real-world prison sentences, according to New York and federal law. At this rate, we could be in for another 25 seasons—and we're not complaining.
These ladies aren't going anywhere.
Let's hope this chart will be updated as more of the characters' backstories are revealed in season 4.
