Michelle Janice Parks was a long distance runner who comes to Wentworth on remand for stealing money from her workplace vehemently protesting her innocence. Jim Fletcher takes a liking to her and accompanies her on her training circuits around the prison grounds. Fletcher's shows an undeniable interest romantically to the beautiful Parks but this never materializes because of her inmate status. She is eventually acquitted at her trial, thanks to evidence from Amelia Humber who had been paid to give her an alibi. Bea reveals later that Michelle had admitted that to her she was guilty and really did do the burglary.
