JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Rhett: They had two phones down there but you had to be
taken to them. Stewart: Yes but they required calling cards. You were only
allowed one call per number for two minutes and
then abrupt disconnection.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Rhett: I don't think it cost anything because this was
your one free call kind of deal. Stewart: I think 30 min calling card cost 20 bucks but I
always spent my money on food.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Rhett: Didn't need those. Stewart: Yes it was the only way to contact the outside world.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Rhett: Yes, and there was a guard standing next to me
the whole time. Stewart: I'm not exactly sure to be honest.
