Interview with Collin, Robbie, Michelle and Lorrie

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Collin: Orange shirt, orange pants. I brought my own socks and underwear that I washed by hand every night. If you don't have white they take it way.
Robbie: you can have underwear socks and undershirts but they have to be white or they wont let you have them.
Michelle: That answer varies by which guards are working. Some let you bring in your white shirt, if any, that you have on when coming to jail. Some let you wear your bra and panties and some make you take them off and wear nothing especially if not white.
Lorrie: You could only bring your on underwear but they had to be white and your own socks white also
