JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Krystal: Yes everyone did from morning til evening.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Krystal: The charges were expensive if you called collect. I
imagine if an inmate makes regular calls the bill
would be pretty high. In a week calling everyday I
would say at least $50 to $60 a week.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Krystal: no not that I am aware of.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Krystal: they screen all calls out of the cellblock.
