PARK PLACE YOUNG OFFENDERS INSTITUTE
From The Governor
To Warden Edwards
Cc Carrie Smith
Offence Having a bottle of Vodka in her bedroom
Sentence 36 strokes of the cane over thin cotton pyjamas
Execution Date 3pm on Tuesday 19 June 2018
Carrie Smith is to sit on her bed waiting in silence for her caning in well-fitted plain cotton pyjamas with her hair tied back in a pony tail.
Warden Edwards will set up the Punishment Room so that the beating will be recorded and then choose an appropriate cane, which he will take with him to Carrie Smith’s bedroom.
Carrie Smith must stand up smartly to attention when he enters. Warden Edwards will remind her of the sentence and show her the cane with which she is to be beaten. She will then be handcuffed with her hands in front of her. Warden Edwards will, feel that she has nothing under her pyjama trousers and then take her to the Punishment Room, carrying one of her pillows.
Carrie Smith is to kneel on the punishment bench so that her legs can be tightly strapped down. As she leans forward, the pillow will be placed under her tummy to avoid any discomfort in any area other than her bottom. Her handcuffed wrists are to be secured to the front of the bench. Her pyjama top will be lifted out of the way and her pyjama trousers pulled up tight.
Warden Smith will keep count by announcing each stroke before it is given, allowing between 30 and 60 seconds between each stroke so that Carrie Smith can fully absorb the pain. Each stroke must be delivered with sufficient strength to ensure that Carrie Smith really regrets her offence and is eventually prepared to reveal who gave her the bottle of vodka.
After each 6 strokes, Warden Edwards will lower Carrie Smith’s pyjama trousers to inspect the stripes and gently rub his hand over each cheek. He will check to ensure that, although the caning is to be very painful, he is not causing any damage that would be too much for a young offender.
After 36 strokes have been given, Warden Edwards will ask Carrie Smith to identify the person who gave her vodka and, if she refuse to tell him, he may continue the caning exactly as before until Carrie Smith decides that she has finally had enough and gives him the name of her supplier.
Once the punishment is complete, Carrie Smith is to be taken back to her bedroom where her handcuffs and pyjama trousers will be removed. Warden Edwards will apply cold cream to her bottom and in return Carrie Smith will help him deal with his inevitable excitement.
