Interview with Krystal

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Krystal: For the women I think there were 3 blocks and also 3 for the men too.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Krystal: yes they are named after letters like a block and c block.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Krystal: felony, misdemeanor, and sentenced. Sometimes they were put together in the same cell block due to being full. So then felony inmates would be with the misdemeanors too in the same cell.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Krystal: The nicest part about the cell blocks is that they were clean. The worst part was it always was too hot in the summertime and cold in the winter. It would always be very dark in the hallway but very bright light in the cell. It would be hard to sleep sometimes because some of the lights stay on.
