Yasmin Sundermeyer was 19 years old at the time of the filming of Jailbirds, a Netflix docu-series that covers the daily lives of female inmates in a prison in California. Though her court records confirm her last name, she’s only known as Yasmin throughout the show.

Yasmin entered the prison in the pilot episode; her experience getting used to prison life and navigating the legal system is depicted throughout season one of Jailbirds.

At 19 years old, Yasmin was a first-time offender at the beginning of season one. As Netflix notes, she was booked for a number of charges including car-jacking, assault with a deadly weapon, evading an officer, drugs, and alcohol. While on the show, Sundermeyer said she was driving “up to 130 [miles per hour]” while she was trying to outrun authorities.

According to Baller Alert, Yasmin tried to escape, and has since been brought back into custody, for charges of escape from custody. She has a scheduled court date of May 31.

During the first episode of Jailbirds, Sundermeyer revealed that she has a child, and said, “I’m not a bad person…I want to be a veterinarian. Like…I want to be back to how I was before.” She added, “I just want to stop, I just want to be happy. I always do this to myself.”

Per Yasmin’s court records, she’s 5’3 and 120 pounds. For those viewers who were wondering if she did, in fact, escape Sacramento County Jail, the answer is yes. Her court record reflects that she escaped for a brief period of time, and as a result her bail has been increased from $200,000 to $1.2 million.

Yasmin has no projected released date. But her next court date is May 31, 2019.
