Closing Advice

Interview with Richard and Donna

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 nobodies business.

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.
