Martin: once aweek visits were through glass and you have to get there social security number

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Alan: Yes. My visitors had to wait up to two hours to see my and submit to a back ground check. The check-in process is why a lot of people didn't want to come see me.
Martin: i never had any visitors so i would not know about the visitor check in proceess so i am sorry i cannot awnswer you question

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Alan: The visiting environment was awful. had to talk on phone thru a big glass window. the phone was beat up and hard to hear on. the glass was all smeared up. other inmates were shouting and couldn't hear my visitors. the visit was depressing and were too short. so short that I stared declining my visits.
Martin: the visiting enviroment was two rooms split by glass i think that visitors had a very emotional time a lot of stress and alot of emotions running high i only saw the visiting rooms from my jail pod as i stated i never had any visitors so i cant answer that
