JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time? Lillie: there was school, church, and
television. In trustee dorm, all
there is is a television. So other
than work, or sleep, there wasn't
much else to do. They also offered
playing cards to the inmates that
wanted to use them, but most of the
cards were not a full deck.
JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details. Lillie: I had regular access to the
entertainment. Sometimes with the
television it was a struggle to be
able to watch what you want to watch.
You had to find a time when nobody
else was around it. Either that or
fight for what you want to watch on
it it wasn't fun.
JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail? Lillie: no. Actually I lost weight, and got
to gain muscle from working in the
trustee program and working very
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? Lillie: I got to be outside almost all day,
every day. We would be out on the
beach from sun-up til sunset every
day. That part wasn't bad at all.
JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held? Lillie: Yes, the jail offered church
services. I'm not sure about what
day it was held or what it was like
because I didn't go to it.
