Death Row Inmate Gets Pregnant While In Solitary Confinement
Special thanks to cub reporter dolo amber for this 'scoop' :D

<snip>

HANOI (Reuters) - A death-row inmate held in solitary confinement in Vietnam for almost a year is pregnant and is seeking a pardon to give birth, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The Lao Dong (Labour) newspaper quoted a police doctor as saying tests in September confirmed that convicted heroin trafficker Nguyen Thi Oanh, 39, was then 11 weeks pregnant.

The report said it was the first time that a death-row prisoner had become pregnant in Vietnam and that police were investigating how it had happened.

Oanh's husband was serving a jail sentence at another prison in another province, the newspaper said.

Oanh was due to face a firing squad this year after losing her appeal against the death sentence she received last year for possession of a billion dong ($63,000) worth of heroin.

Trafficking more than 600 grams of heroin in Vietnam is punishable by death or life imprisonment.

10. Check the toilets
Don't ask me how I know about this but apparently there is a jail of some jurisdiction here in Va. in which the men and women are seperated only by one cinderblock wall. If you flush the toilet at the same time as someone on the other side you can talk for a few seconds.

I know third hand about one such relationship that continued outside the prison walls.

True story.
