Leisure Time

Interview with Freddy

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Freddy: We were allowed to go into the library/snack room once a day for a period of 15 minutes. There was also church services three times a week and an aa service once a week. There was a rec yard, but we were only given access to it 3 times the entire year i was there.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Freddy: We had regular access to the television. If competition for channel selection became heated, then the corrections officers would simply turn the television off to avoid confrontation. Our main form of entertainment was friendly games of dominoes as cards were no longer allowed to be played there because of gambling issues.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Freddy: As I was a trustee, I was working a minimum of four hours a day and did not have a hard time staying actively fit.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Freddy: I was allowed to go outside everyday because of my trustee position, however there was one gentleman there who was only allowed to go outside one time the entire time he was incarcerated because of his security status.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Freddy: there were church services three times a week, on Thursday Saturday and Sunday. they were a half hour long based on gender unless there were no females and then we would recieve the entire hour.
