Leisure Time

Interview with Jessica and Cassie

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Jessica: Nothing - you had to find stuff in your cell to do. You either watched TV, played cards, wrote notes, read a book or slept.
Cassie: T.V and cards

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Jessica: Yes, we all agreed on what to watch on TV. There was really no competition, otherwise the TV was shut off for the rest of the day.
Cassie: all s girls always watched the same thang

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Jessica: Yes, there was nothing to do unless you walked back and forth in your cell and at times that was hard to do because there was so many other inmates there and they fed foods that were high in carbs.
Cassie: no im 4months pregnant my shap is going out the window lol

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Jessica: The only time that I got to go outside was when I went to court. They have a parking garage for the police cars. They park the car in there. I got in the car, they drove to the courthouse about 200 feet from the door and took me inside and when I left the courthouse they took me back to the jail and parked in the garage and took me back inside. This happened 2 times in the total of 75 days I was in jail.
Cassie: not at all because its geting cold out

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Jessica: No, they did not offer church service. If you wanted your personal minister to come to the jail they had to be on your visiting list, they could only come one day a week and that was also counted as your weekly visit so you had to choose between your family or your minister.
Cassie: I dont know I wasnt there for sunday, i got transfered to another jail
