JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail? Richard: No advice. I don't know what to say to them. Donna: I would tell them to put money on their books if
they can so they can get more food to eat. They do
not feed you enough to make you feel full. Also if
they are going to be there a long time visit or
write them if you can also. They crave that like
JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them? Richard: Don't wear blue because this is Northern
California and this is the red state. It's the
gang thing and the hard cores will hurt you if
you come in wearing blue. Donna: I would tell them just to be good and do not feed
into the drama that goes on in our jail. Its small
and you seem to always have people you know coming
in so a lot of drama happens. It will get you put
in the bubble if you fight and its not worth it.
And try and show the guards respect, they really
do treat you different if you treat them nice.
JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to. Richard: None. Donna: I was in two different rehabs in our town. I was in
Crossroads and the bonnie brown program.
