Interview with Rachel

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Rachel: They had 4 phones but you have to wait in a line at the officers station to sign up and then the would call you for 15 minutes phonecall.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Rachel: I believe it was $30 a call when I called my mom back in Montana.

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Rachel: No. They didn't have any of that.

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Rachel: Not that I'm aware of but I guess that's why you had to sign in so they know who is calling and when.
