         WHEREAS, Tenant (or one of Tenant's affiliates) has concurrently
conveyed to Landlord the property described in Exhibit A hereto, and Landlord
and Tenant desire that Landlord lease such property back to Tenant; and

         WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant have entered into a Master Agreement to
Lease of even date herewith (the "Master Agreement") which sets forth certain
agreements of the parties with respect to the lease of various properties
including the property that is the subject of this Lease;

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of their
respective agreements and undertakings herein, Landlord and Tenant agree as
follows:

                                    ARTICLE I
                                PREMISES AND TERM

         1.1 Leased Property. Landlord hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant leases
from Landlord the Land located in the City of Mason, Tipton County, State of
Tennessee, described in Exhibit A hereto, and all Improvements, Fixtures, and
Personal Property thereon or thereto (each as defined in the Master Agreement,
and, together with said Land, the "Leased Property"); such Leased Property
collectively known and described at the date hereof as the West Tennessee
Detention Facility;

         SUBJECT, HOWEVER, to the lien of the mortgage debt described in Exhibit
B hereto, if any, and to all easements, liens, encumbrances, restrictions,
agreements, and other title matters existing as of the date hereof and listed in
Exhibit C hereto (collectively the "Permitted Exceptions").

         1.2 Term. The initial term (the "Fixed Term") of the Lease shall be for
a fixed term of ten (10) years commencing on July 18, 1997 (the "Commencement
Date") and expiring on July 17, 2007 (the "Expiration Date"). The Term of this
Lease may be renewed on the mutual agreement of Landlord and Tenant as follows:
(i) provided that Tenant gives Landlord notice on or before the date which is
six (6) months prior to the Expiration Date, upon the mutual agreement of
Landlord and Tenant, the Lease shall be renewed for one (1) additional five (5)

the Lease is conditioned on Landlord's prior approval of the Extended Term,
Second Extended Term, or Third Extended Term, as the case may be. The term

the Term hereof, at any time following the date which is five (5) years from the
date hereof, upon written notice to Tenant not less than eighteen (18) months
prior to the effective date of such termination.

                                   ARTICLE II

advance in consecutive monthly installments payable on the first day of each
month during the Term, the Extended Term, Second Extended Term and the Third
Extended Term, commencing on the Commencement Date, in accordance with the Base
Rent Schedule attached hereto as Exhibit D. If the Commencement Date or the

initial (or final, as appropriate) monthly installment of Base Rent payable
pursuant to the Lease shall be prorated for the number of days until, in the
case of this initial monthly installment, the first day of the calendar month
following the Commencement Date and, in the case of the final monthly
installment, the Expiration Date.

         2.2 Additional Rent.  The Base Rent shall be subject to such increases
over the Term as determined pursuant to Section 2.02 of the Master Agreement.
