A Crime Flashback, also known as a Prisoner Flashback, is a brief flashback sequence which depicts how certain prisoners ended up in Oz. The flashbacks usually only last about a minute or thirty seconds and are sometimes shown in different colors.

Crime flashbacks only occurred on the more important characters such as Tobias Beecher or Vernon Schillinger, but as the series went on and more story arcs were opened, less important characters such as Louis Bevilaqua or Alexander Vogel began receiving crime flashbacks despite the fact that they were only important for a short period of time.

Also, starting with Season 5 in 2002, the crime flashbacks are shot with digital cameras.
