    ~のために
    ~のため both mean "for (the benefit of) ~."
    E.g., 安全のため、シートベルトを締めてください。Please fasten your seat belt for security.
    あなたのために、祈ります。I am praying for you.

    What you wrote in Japanese 囚人のガールフレンド(の)名前はマリア
    means: The prisoner's girlfriend's name is Maria. If you want to say "the name of the girlfriend's prisoner is Maria," you will have to say ガールフレンドの囚人の名前はマリア
