    Locked Up Abroad on National Geographic Channel explores the consequence of being jailed in foreign countries in telling real life stores of being imprisoned abroad. In Locked Up Abroad: Toyko, Jackie Nichols is locked up in Toyko after being caught smuggling drugs. Locked Up Abroad: Toyko debuted on NGC on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

    Jackie Nichols feld to Japan to restart her life after her fiance died in a car accident. In Japan, Jackie met a charming drug mule and she began to smuggle hashish with him. After four drug-smuggling trips together, their friendship fizzled and Jackie decided to go back home to America … but not before smuggling one last time alone.

    Jackie got caught smuggling drugs and was sentenced to several years in a country known for having one of the world’s strictest prison systems. Jackie struggled to follow the incredibly severe rules — such as prohibitions on interacting with other prisoners and only being able to sit cross-legged or on her knees all day long — feeling like she was losing her mind . In the Toykp prison, Jackie changed completely, became a model prisoner and was released for good behavior after a year and half imprisonment.
