In this photo taken Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012 inmate William Johnson, 38, foreground, attends a college-level seminary course held at the California Rehabilitative Center in Norco, Calif. The program, called The Urban Ministry Institute, TUMI, started as an experiment in Norco's prison four years ago and is now expanding to 18 California prisons and nearly 900 inmates, including women, thanks to a $2.1 million gift from a wealthy Malibu real estate entrepreneur. The nonprofit group Prison Fellowship, which trains volunteers and runs the rigorous, three-year course behind prison walls, graduated its first class of 10 inmates last year and expects to graduate 14 more in 2013. It has also helped prisons in Michigan, Florida and Colorado start classes. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
