Christopher Murray first went behind the walls of the Washington State Penitentiary in July 1976, as an employee of the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. Everywhere he looked, men lounged about talking, laughing, playing music, and smoking. Clearly, the mixed aroma revealed it wasn't just tobacco. As he entered the big cell house, he immediately noticed a striking blonde in a mini-skirt on the tier two stories above. "You mean they let women in here?" he asked, wide-eyed. His escort replied nonchalantly. "That's not a woman." Initially, Murray assumed all prisons were like that. They weren't. In fact, there wasn't another on the planet quite like the one in Walla Walla, and the naive young architect knew he was witnessing something extraordinary - a story that should be told. UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT is that story.
