JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Deidre: Unless someone was on investigative hold, the
pay phones always worked.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Deidre: I heard it was around $10.00 for twenty minutes,
I really don't know, I never used them, I do not
know anyone with a house phone.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Deidre: No, people notified their family how to purchase
time on their phones when we were allowed to use
the outside phone.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Deidre: I have no idea. Not, that I am aware of.
