Closing Advice

Interview with Jared, Bree, George, Sherry and Timothy

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Jared: be strong, and write as much as you can. nothing helps more then a letter from home
Bree: that everyone in there is backstabbers and snitches. dont trust no one in there. even the officers try setting you up. just stay to yourself and everything will be ok
George: Prepare for not getting enough to eat.Being able to purchase commissary will help a lot with that.I'd tell them not to hang around with the trouble makers because in jail you can be guilty by association.
Sherry: at least give them enogh money to buy a thermal and some socks may be even thermal pants or boxers. it gets very cold in there. and send letters as much as possible.
Timothy: This jail isn't bad, its not fun by any means but it could be worse, I never witnessed anything bad other than an occasional fight. Just keep your head out of peoples business and you will be just fine.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Jared: be yourself, dont try to impress anyone and dont believe anyone
Bree: my advise to them would be dont let the time do you, do the time. stay to yourself and dont piss of no officers. remember once your there you have no rights
George: It's not a good idea to run because florida will come get you.Keep there wits about them and be careful the inmates aren't the best class of people you want to be around.
Sherry: Do what your told. Mind your own. And if your going to go to the hole make it worth it. eat what they give you. try to come out of it a better person.
Timothy: You'll get through it. Its a rough time, but its just long as you mind your own business, you'll be good. More or less people don't mess with you if you don't mess with them. Keep your head up and before you know it you'll be out.
