PENDLETON, Ind. -- Paul Henry Gingerich awoke on the morning of his 14th birthday to the sound of a voice -- his prison guard.

"Happy birthday," she said.

It was 6 o'clock. Paul would just as soon been given a few more minutes to sleep.

But in a place where he must ask permission to go to the bathroom, where he eats every meal under close surveillance and where birthdays aren't much different from any other day, it was a nice gesture for one of the state's most controversial inmates.

Paul Gingerich is believed to be the youngest person in Indiana ever sentenced to prison as an adult.
