Role Description

Meredith Ledbetter: (Lead) As a young girl, Meredith has a troubled upbringing. From age 8-12 she is sexually abused by her stepfather. By her teens, she decides to take her power back by manipulating those around her. As a young adult, she calls protective services on her own family, claiming they were abusing an elderly uncle. In reality, she just wanted him moved in with her so she could mooch off his government checks.

In her early 20s, she begins dating Derek Hale. Derek grew up as a child of divorce, and despite his mother Joanie Parker’s best efforts to raise him, he became involved in drugs. Meredith and Derek both become addicted to meth. Eventually, Joanie moves her family to Lubbock, partially for a new job and partially to help Derek get away from Meredith. Before long, Meredith shows back up on their doorstep, begging for a place to stay. During that time, she pretends to have cancer and preys upon Joanie’s kindness. Joanie loans Meredith her car to drive to Dallas for treatment and money for medical bills. After a few months, Joanie realizes the hoax and makes Meredith leave. Meredith and Derek remain friends.

Meredith then meets Casey Ledbetter, 37. Casey is living in a halfway house in Lubbock as part of his probation agreement. Still desperate for money, Meredith calls Joanie and tells her that Derek is in trouble with his boss for stealing drug money.
