Sue "Boomer" Jenkins
Played by Katrina Milosevic
Inmate number: 383497
Charge: Intentionally causing serious injury and possession of drugs while incarcerated
Sentence: 12 years
Served: 5 years
Boomer has a physically imposing presence.
Having moved around a lot as a kid, Boomer never stayed in one place long enough to learn a great deal and her size made her the target for bullies. Boomer may not have an education but she does have a natural wit and laconic sense of humour, which endears her to inmates and officers.
However she has a ferocious temper and definitely not someone you want to upset.
Boomer is unforgiving after copping an additional seven years to her sentence when she is caught up in Liz’s lagging in season 2.
With her biological clock ticking and the prospect on early release unlikely, Boomer goes to extreme lengths in season 4 to fulfil her dream of motherhood.
