Laura P. Shockley in Prison!?!

Okay...so I was researching my SHOCKLEY ancestors and I found that my ancestor, Laura P. Shockley was listed as an "inmate" in the 1920 census. The location was Sussex County, Delaware but there is no other way to tell she was actually in a prison from the writing on the census record. Can anyone help me figure out why she was listed as an inmate and if she was in prison, I would LOVE to know what for! She was 45 years old so I am not sure what she could have done.

Ky'a
