JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time? Dave: School, therapy, aa meetings, church, a library
(you could request specific books... if they had
it they would bring it to you)... the library
had a pretty good selection, TV. Puzzles (from
the library), you could buy chess sets
JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details. Dave: It wasn't hard to access the TV. The TV was on
until 11 pm.
JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail? Dave: No. Actually I lost a lot of weight in there
because the meals were so regimented. Some of
the other inmates said they keep you on 2000
calories a day. I also exercised in there.
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? Dave: Never. We were always in our cell unless we
were going to a meeting or a visit.
JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held? Dave: Yes they had church services, and AA meetings.
Church services were every Sunday. AA meetings
were also on Sunday.
