Interview with Dave

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Dave: I never really walked around, so I'm not sure how many blocks there were. There were 8 bunks in a room but they often cram 20 or more people in there and put some people on the floor. It's kind of like a big dorm room.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Dave: My cell was 17. I'm not sure otherwise.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Dave: The outside part of the jail is in an L shape, and they house the minimum security (that's where I was). On the inner part of the jail are the more serious crimes and people who haven't been sentenced yet. Solitary was on the inside part. The women were on the inside. We would walk by them for visitation.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Dave: I believe every cell is pretty much the same. When we went to therapy group, it looked like a high school cafeteria that was kind of a nicer room. There was a school in there that was a little more comfortable.
