Christine Angela Latham appeared from Episodes 003 - 338.
Chrissie Latham is first seen as part of Franky Doyle's gang sitting next to her at lunch. Chrissie was frequently inside for various prostitution and fraud offences. She was a would-be-nymphomaniac with no male prisoners around, but it didn't stop her making attempts on male staff, such as the well-liked Bill Jackson. In a fit of jealousy, Chrissie ended up stabbing Bill with a pair of scissors instead of stabbing his wife Meg Jackson. She was transferred to Fairlea Prison, but not before Bea Smith and her gang attempted to scalp Chrissie, giving her a massive cut in the process.
When Chrissie returned later in the year, it was discovered she was pregnant, the father being one of the male officers at Fairlea. Originally intending to abort the baby (with a DIY job), she decides to keep it, partly to avoid a bashing from Bea, and gives birth to a girl prematurely. She names her Elizabeth, after Lizzie Birdsworth.
Chrissie is given the privilege of regular visits to hospital to see her daughter until she is healthy and old enough to leave. She almost jeopardises this however with her lesbian relationship with drug pusher Sharon Gilmour. Chrissie attacks Sharon's long-term girlfriend, Judy Bryant, with a chair. When Chrissie realises she could lose her visiting rights to see Elizabeth, she breaks it off with Sharon and is moved to the maternity wing to be with her daughter.
She eventually gets released from Prison, and moves in with an old boyfriend Mick O'Brien, who wants to set up a home with Chrissie and Elizabeth, who is not yet in full custody, but this is short lived as Mick turns out to be an escaped prisoner called Mark Brendan.
Chrissie manages to get herself put back into Wentworth by committing fraud. She was discovered claiming welfare benefits under three different names. During this time, she managed an escape, caused a fire, and eventually got transferred to Barnhurst.
Chrissie was sexually abused as a child by her father. Her brother Derek knew of this and did nothing to stop it (for which he later felt guilty for.) It is revealed that she was born in England and moved to Australia as a child with her family in search of a better life. Chrissie spent a short time living with Derek and his wife.
