JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Allie: Yes, pretty much.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Allie: You have to set up the phone service with
somebody or accept the collect calls. I think
it was $4 for a call of 10 minutes.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Allie: No, they don't have phone cards. But that may
be changing. They had stuff posted saying that
they were changing their commissary system.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Allie: The recording said they did.
