Interview with Eric

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Eric: There were 5 different blocks open.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Eric: There was 100 block, 200 block, 300 block, 400 block, and 600 block

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Eric: The 100 blocks were women's cells and max cells, the 200 blocks were mixed 6 person cells with women, men, sentenced and un-sentenced cells. The 300 blocks were one sentenced men and one women. The 400 cells were work release and work crew. The 600 block was one 26 person un-sentenced cell and some max security cells.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Eric: The nicest part of the 600 block is that it is mostly new. Being new it is clean and the temperature is pretty well regulated. The bad part is that there is 26 guys in one open room. The stealing and loudness is not good. The fighting over one tv was not good. If you liked tv you need to be in a 6 person cell in the 200 block or 100 if you were a woman.
