Down for armed robbery and assault, the only crimes they were able to prove, he has but one good quality: he loves his cousin Otis. When they end up imprisoned at the same jail, Jesse intentionally gets himself denied parole to make sure he's there to protect Otis, who isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. But that job gets much harder when the Crossed spread inside those escape-proof walls!
