Interview with Jessica and Cassie

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Jessica: 8 and the holding cell I am sure. I really don't know because I was only in a block, K dorm, and F block, but I am really not for sure how many blocks they have.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Jessica: I know of A, B, C, D, F, K and the holding.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Jessica: They really don't have a certain place for the different types of inmates, they just put them wherever there is room and then not then they put them wherever they want to put them.
Cassie: Im not giving all that infromation!

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Jessica: The nicest part about K dorm was it was one big room, maybe the size of a decent sized living room. You could take a shower whenever you wanted and there was a shower curtain so nobody could see you shower. The worst part of K dorm was it was right next to the back door so you got to see everyone leave. The good part of A block was there were no doors, they were all bars. The bad parts were there was no shower curtain, the shower came on 2 days a week and the water was cold because all the other showers were on and at night we went in a little room and the doors were locked. We had to get up at 6AM and sleep in the day room or stay up til 10PM. As far as F block there was nothing good about that, the water for the shower was cold (2 days/week). I was in F block during the winter - the heat didn't work and it was freezing in there. No privacy in A or F block.
Cassie: the jail alon is a peice of shit. and nasty. you only get the cleaning cart like twice a week in tri county jail you get the cleaning cart everyday after every meal.
