Girl Scouts Meet in Prison, With Fathers
By DEBORAH HASTINGS , 06.17.2006, 12:22 PM

The convicts stand in a circle, three fingers pointed skyward, nine faces set in stone, their deep, male voices raised in slow recitation:

"On my honor, I will try,

"To serve God and my country,

"To help people at all times,

"And to live by the Girl Scout Law."

At their sides stand their daughters, their small fingers also raised in the Girl Scout salute. This is the regular monthly meeting of Troop 884 - not in a school, not in a church, but at the Allen Correctional Institution, a medium-security prison rising from the rolling farmlands of northwestern Ohio.
