Leisure Time

Interview with Todd

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Todd: They had a book cart that stayed in there with about 40 books you could look through; a wide variety of titles. You could get paper and pencil to write people. The exercise yard was concrete with a basketball court and enough space around the court to walk around and get exercise that way.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Todd: They had 4 televisions and the channels were chosen by the guards. During the day there was CNN. They would let us take a vote and see who wanted to watch what.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Todd: No.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Todd: Twice a day. They would unlock the doors in morning for three hours, in the afternoon for 3 hours and for 1 hour after dinner.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Todd: Yes, every Sunday someone would come in from the community and hold the services on the courtyard.
