Interview with Todd

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Todd: It was an open dorm setting. There were concrete block dividers four feet tall and in each cubicle there were four bunks with a drawer underneath. And we were given a mattress and a thin sheet and blanket. There was a guard station in the center of the room. There were many of these cell blocks but I'm not sure how many.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Todd: They were numeric

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Todd: We were not separate by crimes but by violent versus non-violent. Where I was someone was in there for embezzlement, someone was in there for stealing equipment from an orange grove. Some for a DUI.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Todd: Believe it or not it was extremely clean. We were assigned clean up detail chores and we had to do that every day every meals. Place was always very clean. We changed linen twice a week. The worst was the food... it was horrible. It was fried mystery meat I could never identify and grits is not a breakfast.
