Interview with Darrin and Jessica

JM: What clothes could you have brought in to wear in the jail (underwear, socks, etc.)?
Darrin: you can have 3 t-shirts, 3 pair of socks, 3 pair of underwear; they must be all solid white and new in the package.
Jessica: You have 72hrs from the time your in jail you get 3 pairs of socks 3 pairs of underwear 3 shirts 3 bras (sports bras) and a set of long johns all have to be white. Now if you didn't have anyone to bring you any you could buy some on commissary. But if you had neither you had none.

JM: If you had a set uniform, what did it look like? Please be specific about each piece of clothing issued to you.
Darrin: for the most part they looked and felt like thick heavy duty scrubs. due to the age of most of them they have gotten thin faded and usually have had some sort of repair done to them.
Jessica: Yes we had green scrub uniforms. The pants came in m-5x same as shirts m-5x they where nothing fancy and sometimes you didn't get your size they wouldn't fit right. In this county that is all you get one uniform.

JM: Were there any assigned clothes in high demand that an inmate should look for when getting clothing assigned?
Darrin: only newer cloths. most people only get old worn out tore up cloths unless they know the laundry trustee.
Jessica: Well not really they only have the one kind. Unless your a trustee they wear orange scrub uniforms...pants and shirts.

JM: Was the clothing different between men and women?
Darrin: yes there were different cloths for men and women. women and trusties get orange while regular men get blue
Jessica: nope not all everyone wears the same except trustees men and women trustees wear orange.
