Interview with

If you have run into legal problems in Clermont County, you may be facing some time in the county jail. If this is your first time, you may be wondering what to expect. The following information was gathered through interviews of former inmates of the Clermont County Jail. To the left are links to the actual interviews, sharing with you valuable information about what life inside this jail is really like.

Phone Calls
Inmates in Clermont County Jail have regular access to phones. Collect calls can only be made to landlines that have set up a service on their phone allowing them to accept the collect call. In addition, inmates can purchase phone cards through commissary.

The phone cards cost $6 and can be used for three phone calls, up to 30 minutes each. The unfortunate thing about these phone cards is that even if you only talk for 2 minutes, a call will count for one of the three allowed on the card.

Visitation
Inmates can receive visitors twice a week. The inmate is required to make a request in writing as to who they want to visit them prior to the day of the visit. After that individual is approved for the visit, the inmate must get a hold of their visitor to tell them they are on the schedule and when their visit is scheduled.

There is only 24 hours between the time the inmate finds out the visitation schedule and when the visit takes place, so it can be difficult for the inmate to get in touch with the visitor in time to let them know when to come. This is a common frustration among inmates in this jail. Visits are held with a glass wall separating the inmate and visitor.

Medical Services
If an inmate requests to be seen by a doctor, the inmate is charged $10 for the visit, and $5 for each prescription they receive as a result of the visit. Families can bring meds to their loved ones, and the jail will administer the meds to the inmate as long as it is non-narcotic.
