URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/bar_and_bat_mitzvahs/article/inmates_celebrate_bnot_mitzvah_20090909

Two women, identified as Carol and Pamela — not their real names — became b’not mitzvah on Saturday, Sept. 5. Both are inmates at the California Institution for Women (CIW) in Corona, located about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles. The event is believed to be the first bat mitzvah to take place inside prison walls in the United States.
