Interview with John

JM: How many different blocks were there?
John: There are five main male felon pods, two trustee felon pods,two misdemeanor main pods and one trustee misdemeanor pod so I guess ten male pods or blocks and I believe two on the women side.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
John: M1-M4, upper and lower trustee, S1-S3, and kitchen trustees and then female side.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
John: They are only separated by felons and misdemeanors at the Craighead County Jail. Crime severity does not get separated on felons side. The only inmates that are separate are suicidal and the trustees.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
John: I liked the trustee blocks best because it was less people and they had to be respectful,mild mannered and there were perks like extra food and the television would stay on all night. The other blocks tend to be loud and you never know what kind of things will jump off at any given time, and that makes it hard to relax.
