Tiffany "Pennsatucky" D. Doggett, portrayed by Taryn Manning, is a main character and an inmate at Maximum Security. She serves as the main antagonist of Season One.

Personality Edit

At the beginning of the series, Tiffany has a severe dichotomous split in her personality. On one side, she is a bible thumping, evangelical Christian who rants and raves against any perceived sins. On the other side, she frequently curses and attacks (both physically and through manipulation of others) the "sinners", such as Vause and Chapman. Tiffany is oblivious to the irony and contrast between what she believes in and her actions. She is extremely judgmental, bossy, and overall ignorant, though her extended time in the Psych ward heavily changes her attitude (though this could also be attributed to her friendship with Big Boo).

Following these life-changing events, Tiffany has grown to become more sensible and rational in her treatment of others. She is notably less zealous in her faith, no longer harassing the inmates about the word of God. In many ways, Tiffany matured much as the show progresses, going to the point where she perceives the ignorance of her ways and those of her former followers, such as Leanne Taylor and Angie Rice.

Physical Appearance Edit

Doggett is small and slight in stature. In Season One she has long, dark brown hair and terrible teeth. During Season Two, she gets her hair cut short and the government pays for her to undergo oral surgery. As the seasons progress, her pixie cut slowly grows into a bob.

She also has several tattoos, including an owl tattoo on her left shoulder, a rainbow tattoo on her left wrist, and a unicorn on her left forearm. She wears the normal outfit of the inmates but normally her trousers hang down a bit.

Biography Edit

Before Litchfield Edit

For a list of episodes featuring Doggett's flashbacks, see here.

Doggett was born on the 24th of October 1981.

As a child, Doggett's mother, Debbie, used her daughter to get more money from the government by forcing her to drink a huge bottle of Mountain Dew before entering the welfare office. The resulting caffeine and sugar high made her bounce off the walls and appear as though she had ADHD ("Mother's Day").

When she had her first period at ten years old, she was told by her mother that sex just felt like a bee sting and that men would expect it of her ("A Tittin' and a Hairin'").

Doggett never understood that sex could be pleasurable for both men and women; she had low self esteem and would engage in transaction sex for a six-pack of Mountain Dew. One man, Abe, offered her Mountain Dew and began to have sex with her. This ended early when Doggett was bitten by an insect.

Doggett then met Nathan, who patched up her wound for her. He later become her first real boyfriend. Nathan was the first man Doggett was with that would actually give her pleasure during sex. He eventually had to move away with his family, but he promised that they would see each other again one day. The next time Doggett saw him, Abe asked if they could finish what they had started, but then raped her when she resisted him ("A Tittin' and a Hairin'").

Years later, Doggett is depicted as a sexually irresponsible methamphetamine addict who claims her reasoning for her fifth abortion was due to her cousin being arrested for having a baby whilst continuing to use drugs. Before she went to the abortion clinic, she was with a man called Arlen who had apparently impregnated her (he is not the same companion seen at the abortion clinic when Doggett gets her sixth abortion; this is a man named Trey whose relationship to Doggett is unknown). When an orderly made a snide comment about her many abortions, Doggett got a gun from her pick up and shot the orderly in broad daylight with many witnesses.

A coalition of pro-life supporters hailed Doggett as a hero, and fund a high-profile Christian lawyer to defend her in court, making it look like she killed the nurse for the purpose of defending unborn life. She did not appear to be religious whatsoever prior to her meeting the Christian lawyer. However, due to their continued praise and financial support, Doggett became a religious zealot ("Fool Me Once").

Season One Edit

Being now in prison, she still seems to have a fandom worshiping her as the "defender of the unborn". Her coworkers in the prison's laundry room also serve as her "followers", including Leanne Taylor and Angie Rice.

Doggett spends most of her time trying to preach God's Word and convert others to His ways. She regularly receives letters from her fans which she answers praying for "the unborn baby souls". She also tries to install a large, gaudy cross in the prison chapel, leading to the collapse of the roof in "The Chickening".

When she runs for WAC, she loses, as Piper gets the position without even running and she starts to dislike her. She later also starts to dislike Alex, breaking her glasses and locking her up in a dryer. When she begins to believe she can heal the pains of other inmates, Watson and Big Boo both convince Doggett that her "healing" was successful, although they were only acting like it was. The "healing" escalated when, during a "Scared Straight" program, she assaulted a disabled teenage girl in a wheelchair with the belief she could heal her, ending up in her being transferred to Psych, where she realizes that God does not help her. When she later gets re-transferred due to Piper's feelings of guilt and talks to her Christian lawyer, he consolidates her in her faith again, which causes her trying to convert Piper to Christianity, but as the refuses to be immersed, Tiffany interprets it as humiliation and comes to the conclusion that she has to kill her. She later threatens her with a razor blade hidden in a tooth brush in the prison's showers.

"Can't Fix Crazy", In the middle of the Christmas performance, Piper leaves the show. Tiffany follows her outside and threatens her with a sharpened wooden cross, but Piper finally knocks the stake out of Tiffany's hand and beats her until she falls unconscious.

At the end of the season she's been in prison for already more than two years, as she's also taken part in the last two Christmas pageants.

Season Two Edit

In the beginning of Season 2, Doggett gets new teeth as a result of Piper knocking most of them out. This resulted from Healy bribing her to promise that she "forgets" that he was present in the alleyway and didn't stop the fight between Piper and herself.

Her relationship with Leanne becomes strained after her experiences in the psych ward, and the two eventually become enemies. Doggett also starts a "friendship" with Healy, promoting his group therapy sessions "Safe Place". She also loses much by her religious fervor and becomes more easy going.

Season Three Edit

Pennsatucky becomes the new driver in Litchfield, as Morello is no longer trustworthy enough after Rosa's escape. This results in her striking up a friendship with new correctional officer Charlie Coates, who treats her to otherwise forbidden doughnuts and ice-cream. The two feed stale doughnuts to ducks, and eventually Coates begins to take advantage of Doggett.

Coates gets in trouble for being late for count while on a detour with Doggett. He's put on probation and rapes Doggett out of anger. An abusive relationship develops in which he repeatedly abuses her. Big Boo notices bruises on her wrists, and the two plot revenge against Coates. Their plan was to go "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" on him, raping Coates back with a broomstick while he's knocked out from Boo's tranquilizer pills.

Doggett and Big Boo go along with the plan but before raping him back, they fight over who should do it first. They quickly rush back to movie night, not going with their rape and pretending that nothing happened. Eventually, the duo come up with a plan which consists of Doggett faking a seizure to relieve herself from van duty. It's a success, but Ramos is the new van driver, hinting that Coates could abuse her next.

Doggett and Big Boo are seen later enjoying a friendly game with Angie and Leanne in the pond at the end of Season 3.

Season Four Edit

She becomes attached to Charlie Coates and is later raped by him. She later falls back in love with him again.

Season Five Edit

For much of the season, Tiffany had been quiet throughout most of the events unfolding within the prison. Most notably, she has managed to recoup with correctional officer Charlie, and the two eventually rekindled their love interest with each other. Their love runs so deep that Tiffany risked the wrath of her inmate fellows by allowing Charlie to escape the prison, which unfortunately resulted in Leanne losing her finger when the gun Tiffany took from her misfired by accident. This resulted in a lengthy witch-hunt style trial where the inmate community would decide her fate. Boo managed to convince the inmates to let her go on the condition that Tiffany would try to do good for the prison community. Needless to say, Leanne and Angie continued their grudge towards Tiffany, which resulted in Tiffany being condemned by the rest of the inmates. Fortunately, in the final episode, Tiffany managed not only to escape her abuse but also escape the prison itself during the SWAT break-in, wherein she entered the local correctional officer's hangout house where she and Charlie once more reunited. Thinking momentarily to perhaps make love, the two instead insist to simply lay down and watch TV together, the two lovers smiling in the end.

Season Six Edit

Tiffany did not board a bus like the rest of the inmates, but instead escapes with Litchfield's previous officer Coates . The fact that she is missing goes unnotices because Linda Ferguson is counted as an inmate and sent in her place. Coates hides Tiffany in the boot of the car, planning a roadtrip with her. However, Dixon , who was supposed to be getting dropped off at his sister's, refuses to leave Coates alone for fear that he'll kill himself on what he describes as a solo roadtrip. Tiffany is forced to spend more time hiding, but grows bored of it during the night and knocks on the motel room door, revealing herself to Dixon. Linda has now been released and soon MCC realizes the count must have been wrong and her escape is discovered. Her photo appears on national news and they fear that her disguise is no longer good enough. Coates decides they will run away together to Canada, and although Tiffany seems unsure she eventually agrees. Dixon expresses concern for her continuing to see Coates. Coates and Tiffany begin their trip with a rocky start when Coates grows angry at being unable to start a fire. They have a long conversation and she tells him she fears he can't change. He insists that he can and the two go to sleep. During the night Tiffany wakes up, starts the fire that he wouldn't allow her to help with, and leaves him there in the woods. She walks to a police station where she turns herself in. While in Ad-Seg, Tiffany sees Linda, who agrees to transfer her to B-Block, to keep her quiet about what went on between her and Boo during the prison riot. In B-Block, she becomes friends with Suzanne Warren , and agrees to be her sidekick while interrogating inmates about Frieda. She also convinces Suzanne to join the kickball team. After Frieda admits that she was never Suzanne's friend, Tiffany comforts her.

  • Nathan (ex-boyfriend) - Nathan was Doggett’s boyfriend. They first met at a party where Doggett was hanging out with someone's friends. In the middle of having sex with Abe she is stung/bit by either a bee or a spider. Abe becomes angry, berating her for interrupting him but she runs off and Nathan finds her. He sees that she is in pain and comes over to try to help. He goes to his truck and returns with a first aid kit. Afterwards, he asks her on a date to go see a movie with him. He treats Doggett with respect and consideration and introduces her to the finer parts of a relationship compared to the rough treatment she's had from other boys interested in her. He is also the first person to introduce her to intimacy and sexual acts purely for her own pleasure. Eventually the pair have to break up because he must move to Wyoming with his parents.
  • Charlie Coates - In season five, Doggett helps Coates escape the prison riot by throwing him a gun, which resulted in blowing off Leanne's finger. Later, Doggett escapes the prison through a hole in the fence made by Maria Ruiz. They show her finding the houses that were renovated by the inmates during season 3 that the COs lived in. While she is laying in the bed in the house, she hears someone opening the door. Slowly grabbing a gun she found in one of the drawer's, she goes towards the front door only to find Coates.

Friends Edit

  • Sam Healy (former) - Mr. Healy becomes Doggett's personal counselor when he notices she is having anger management issues, which is something he relates to. They also relate over the fact that since the end of Season One, all Doggett's friends have turned on her, and the women no longer trust or like Healy due to his treatment of Piper. Doggett is shown to respect and trust Healy, taking interest in his counseling and expressing her desire to stop "being the bully". She was a keen enthusiast of his "Safe Place" meetings for the inmates, and encouraged others to take part. However, Healy's influence on Doggett is also negative since talking to him only strengthens her opposition to homosexuality and he convinces her that lesbians are trying to conquer the world. She drifts away from his influence when she becomes close friends with Big Boo.
  • Big Boo - After being rejected by Leanne and her old laundry crew, Doggett becomes friends with Big Boo. Despite her opposition to homosexuality, she becomes convinced from talking with Healy that lesbians are trying to conquer the world by eliminating men. Boo encouraged Penn to cut her long hair, at first making fun of her naivety of the lesbian way of life. During Season Three, the two become closer, sharing more jokes and making fun of each other less. Doggett reassures Boo that she's fine the way she is, during the episode "Finger in the Dyke", when Boo tries to appear straight for monetary gain. Boo also encourages Penn to brush her new teeth instead of letting them rot. The two become particularly close when Doggett is caught up in her abusive relationship with Charlie Coates. They plot revenge against him together, but in the end do not follow through on their original plan to "rape him back", and instead Boo helps Penn fake a seizure to get out of van duty. Boo comforts Penn and supports her through this rough time.
  • Nicky Nichols - Penn sees Nicky pacing through her cube after having withdrawals from drugs. She helps Nicky fight through her heroin withdrawal by encouraging conversation and helping her when she's "in denial" about her being sick.

The next day Penn sits with Nicky and Red's Family and Nicky refers to her as her helper.

Enemies Edit

  • Alex Vause (former; kissed) - Alex and Penn are enemies in Season One, thanks to her strict opposition to homosexuality.
  • Piper Chapman (former) - During Season One, Piper and Penn do not get along after misunderstandings about religion and its place in the prison. The Season ends with the two fighting. The two eventually bury the hatchet as Penn gets new teeth and realizes the gravity of her actions while in Solitary Confinement.
  • Abe - Abe is one of the men who forced himself upon Doggett when she was younger. He was abusive and raped her.
  • Charlie Coates (former) - Doggett first met Coates when he became a new correctional officer at Litchfield. They developed a close friendship after taking a few rides in the Litchfield van together. Coates began to show signs of aggression when he began yelling at Doggett to become a dog and fetch with her teeth. When she opposed to it he began to yell at her showing that he has aggressive tendencies. Eventually their relationship turned romantic when Coates began to kiss her on one of their trips to feed the ducks, the same trip where he began to become aggressive. It is shown that Doggett is not exactly infatuated with Coates as she does not kiss him back when he forces himself upon her. Sensing her opposition, he backs off and they return to Litchfield. On another van trip they stop for ice cream, Doggett insisting that they have time to. When they return to Litchfield Coates is yelled at by Caputo for being late and missing count, which causes him to become angry at Doggett. When Doggett and Coates are supposed to leave on another van trip, she asks if they can get ice cream again. Coates then yells at her. Doggett tries apologizing, but Coates becomes even angrier with her. He then yells and pushes Doggett into the van and begins to rape her, telling her he loves her. This is shown to continue on for awhile and she begins to receive gifts from Coates. Doggett shows Big Boo the bracelet and Boo notices the bruises on her wrists. She becomes enraged at the idea of Doggett being abused and raped by this man and demands she take the bracelet off. Doggett refuses to and says that it's her fault, that he was being forceful because she was the one who instigated it by flirting and "smiling too much". Big Boo then becomes angry and comes up to Doggett one day and demands sex for money since she's "for sale" hinting at her relationship with Coates. Eventually Doggett breaks down and the two come up with a plan to get back at Coates for what he's done to her.
  • Linda Ferguson - Posing as a prisoner, Linda uses Big Boo as protector from other inmates. This resulting in Big Boo not paying enough attention to Doggett.

TriviaEdit

  • The nickname "Pennsatucky" comes from a region in Appalachia where Doggett is from, called Pennsyltucky.


Pennsatucky, described in the memoir as “a young woman from western Pennsylvania who proudly called herself a redneck” and a crack addict, is Chapman’s enemy and Kerman’s friend. Kerman refers to Pennsatucky and her friends as “Eminemlettes,” which she defines as:

“Caucasian girls from the wrong side of the tracks with big mouths and big attitudes who weren’t taking shit from anyone (except the men in their lives). They had thinly plucked eyebrows, corn-rowed hair, hip-hop vocabularies, and baby daddies, and they thought Paris Hilton was the ne plus ultra of feminine beauty.”

Pennsatucky had lost custody of her kid, and Kerman considers her “perceptive and sensitive” while acknowledging that “[Pennsatucky] had great difficulty expressing herself in a way that was not off-putting to others, and she got loud and angry when she felt disrespected, which was often.” Like many incarcerated women, Kerman feels that nothing “would have prevented [Pennsatucky] from living a perfectly happy life, but her problems made her vulnerable to drugs and to the men who had them to offer.”
