Closing Advice

Interview with Kandra and Paul

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Kandra: There is not much that can be given in terms of advice but the most important thing I think an inmate can have is money for commissary so that you can purchase some of the luxuries of the outside world. Otherwise, make the best of the time that you have while in jail by doing what most do, fraternize.
Paul: support support support, write even if its only a line or two, that means so much to get mail, you dont have to leave a bill alone just send 20 dollars for toiletrys and stuff

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Kandra: I do not know much about the upstairs of Atlanta City Jail. But the same advice applies that I listed above regarding commissary. Otherwise, seek experienced counsel to help you in your case if funds are available.
Paul: dont get too close to anyone, keep your personal business to yourself, DONT DROP THE SOAP, leave any friendships at the jail when you leave, get word to people you know will support you with commisary and letters

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Kandra: Besides Atlanta City Jail, I have served time at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta and Women's Detention Center in Miami, FL as well as Turner-Guilford Knight Correctional Facility in Miami, FL.
Paul: i did time in Allendale Federal prison Allegheny County Jail, Pittsburgh Pa 1970
