I'm not sure why you asked this question. I can't see how any (valid) answer could be used to support your view.
Regardless, I assume the belief in a God provides some form of comfort and/or hope to the prisoner.
Unless, this "higher being", for some reason has a special place in his/her heart for criminals, and reveals him/herself in a way that can be independently verified, then there is no reason to believe this being exists based on the notion of inmates finding a higher power whilst in prison (if this is actually the case???).
