Regenia Bowman never thought anything would happen when she talked about spending 189 days in solitary confinement.
Awaiting trial on an alleged probation violation in 2014, Bowman spent 23 hours a day in a cell. She lived in the same portion of a Tennessee prison that houses the state's lone female death row offender.
She was sent to the state prison because she had MRSA, a skin infection.
For months in late 2017 and earlier this year, then-15-year-old Teriyona Winton spent almost every hour of every day alone in a small cell intended for adults.
