JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Clinton: Yes, they have a payphone there. But the way
it's set up you have to have an account that
someone on the outside sets up. You could call
regular collect when I first got there but I
think now you have to have that account set up
on the outside. Brooke: Yes. You could use the phone when you wanted for a
very large fee.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Clinton: I don't remember what the cost was. Brooke: 15 dollars for 5 mins. Most people had at least 1
call per week. But some had as many as 3 a day.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Clinton: They had cards you could buy off commissary. Brooke: Yes I believe you could purchase mins on commissary
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Clinton: Yeah, I'm pretty sure. Brooke: Yes. They are always recorded and reviewed.
