JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Freddy: I did not find it difficult to get along with
other inmates. I have a very personable
disposition when approached, but otherwise kept to
myself and did not discuss my charges with other
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Freddy: I simply kept to myself. I read ALOT, and was
also provided with a college level algebra book
that I used to teach myself algebra again. I was
also made a trustee and spent a great deal of time
away from the general population and did not have
to spend alot of time with the other inmates.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Freddy: I was not able to choose my cellmate. We were in a
block that had three general housing rooms with 8
beds in each one, and I was moved once during my
stay. Close to the end of my stay I had myself
transferred to an empty block and spent the last
month on my incarceration alone.
