JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Leo: I got along with other inmates fine. I stayed
away from the things inmates fought eachother
over. I just remained qiuet and remained
respectful to everyone there. I read alot.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Leo: I stayed away from gambling and drugs. I read
alot and kept to myself. I read alot of books.
I wrote to family and friends often. I read my
case over and over. I would exercise everyday
to stay as fit as possible. I prayed alot and
reflected on my life often.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Leo: They intentionally celled us up with other
inmates that would create problems. The
detention officers enjoyed stirring up
problems. Not all of them but a few was enough
to create problems.
