Interview with Rhett and Stewart

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Rhett: I was only in the holding cell part of the jail. It was pretty packed. I think there were about five holding cells like the one I was in.
Stewart: Honestly I can't remember but the building was split between the female side and the male side, and they was at least 6 different levels above ground.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Rhett: They called it Block M... so I guess it was alphabet.
Stewart: They called them pod's and each pod was had a certain amount of cells so say for instances, on level 7 in the second pod in cell 12 it would be, POD 7B 12

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Rhett: Where I was it was pretty much whoever got arrested at that time.
Stewart: The building was separated by female and male but other than that it was mixed between the more harden and petty criminals and then the insane people at the very top level.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Rhett: I don't think there was a nice part. The worst was that it didn't seem like everybody was on the same page at the same time. One guard would tell me I was going to get my phone call and then another one would come along and say not now.
Stewart: The worst part was when I first came in and they told me I had to take the TB shot or I would have to stay in lock down during my whole sentence. Also while waiting on TB shot to clear they only allowed us out one hour a day. The best part was getting into general population and gaining some freedoms like watching TV sometimes and being allowed to read books.
