Closing Advice

Interview with Ryan, Alex, George, Diana and Maria

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Ryan: MIND YOU OWN BUSINESS WHILE IN JAIL
Alex: Understand that it takes a HUGE toll on someone and they may not be how they were before they went in.
George: DONT DO THE CRIME IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET CAUGHT
Diana: Keep money on your books so you can eat read lots of books to keep your mind right play cards to past time socialite if you want but that is up to you
Maria: To write letters, lots of letters. Mail is what keeps inmates going, something to hold onto, something permanent. Something that they can read over and over and over and over.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Ryan: SPEND YOUR TIME THINKING AND INPROVING YOURSELF
Alex: Going from freedom to the least possible form- feeling like an animal with NO privacy. having a guard watch over EVERYthing you do. Literally feeling guilty until proven innocent but nobody wants to prove you innocent. Feeling that your "attorney" appointed by the court only wants you to plea is such a frustrating thing. 24 hours of doing nothing but wondering what's happening to your family and what's GOING to happen takes a toll on you.
George: KEEP TO YOUR SELF DONT TAKE NO "GIFTS"
Diana: Just keep to yourself don't disrespect other peoples space keep your books fat so you won't go hungry and money and you phone account so you can talk to your family
Maria: I would tell them to stay clean; you know, make sure you shower every day. Whatever you do, DON"T STINK! You'll never live it down, friend. And make friends, where possible.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Diana: No
Maria: Purdy Correctional Center for Women.
