JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Clinton: Yes. Tyrone: We had access to the phones that you call
collect on. If you're in general population you
come out twice a day for an hour. That is when
you can access the phones.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Clinton: The other person had to activate their phone
using a credit card. The cost was
$50 for 4/20 min phone calls. Tyrone: $3 just to connect. They charged $2 to talk for
a few minutes. So altogehter $5 for 15
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Clinton: No. Tyrone: No, you can only call collect.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Clinton: Yes Tyrone: Yes they do.
