Interview with Danny

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Danny: We had regular access to extremely expensive pay- per-call phones.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Danny: It cost $10 for 15 minutes of talk time. That cost was reduced to $7.50 per 15 minutes once my wife set up a phone account through Securis (which is the name of the company that owns the phone system in the jail.)

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Danny: You can use phone cards or the person you call can pay with a credit card or by setting up an inmate phone account.

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Danny: I would have no knowledge if they screened the calls or not, but I would assume they are at least recorded if nothing else.
