Embracing Judaism in prison?

I’m a journalist for a small Jewish publication, and my editor wants me to do a feature related to Judaism in prisons (this is a throwaway account). My first thought was that since many inmates embrace religion while in prison, there would be cases of inmates who embrace or convert to Judaism.

I’ve had trouble finding any documented cases, though, aside from inmates informally converting so they can get better-quality kosher meals. Does anyone know of any cases of this happening? And if not, does anyone know of any Jewish organizations that work with inmates? Thanks in advance
