Fenmore was arrested after his bullying victim Jamie fell off a rooftop and was badly injured. Later, Jamie recanted that Fenmore had pushed him, but the damage was done — Fenmore turned to drugs.
Fenmore blasted his mother, Lauren (Tracey Bregman), for having an affair with Carmine Basco. After Carmine turned up dead, Fenmore was arrested, but just when it looked like he was going to the big house for good — Carmine turned up alive!
