Interview with Darrell

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Darrell: Unknown, but the jail was'nt very big. I guess no more than 5 or 6, including the womens side.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Darrell: Ad-Seg, Isolation, Dorm 1, Dorm 2, Dorm 3, etc, etc.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Darrell: Unknown, but they kept the violent prisoners separate, the women together, the trusties/kitchen crew had there own dorm, and the "short timers" where outside in a tent or a trailer.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Darrell: The nicest part was the food. I don't know who was doing the cooking, but he/she must have worked in a restaurant somewhere because it was pretty good (As jails go). The worst part was the isolation. No TV, books, or newspapers. I didn't get much mail either, and that didn't help. Plus I only got to the "yard" (It was a concrete slab about 20 by 20 feet.) when the gaurd wasn't too busy and "felt like" taking me.
