Some of SCís most notorious convicts are studying music in maximum-security prison

"In the chapel, where the men were rehearsing their songs, the orange jumpsuits seemed jarringly out of place. They reminded any visitor that this was a room full of felons. Some of them had done terrible things.

But here, at Lee Correctional Institution, South Carolinaís largest maximum-security prison, these 37 men were singing of love and loneliness, family and regret.

A notorious murderer played an open-bodied electric guitar with the skill of a professional. Others clearly had mastered their instruments before getting locked up. But most had learned to play and sing in jail.

These men are residents of the ďcharacter-based unit,Ē a section of the prison meant for those who demonstrate nonviolence and an interest in cooperation and rehabilitation. Inmates must apply to win one of 256 beds."
