JM: Did you have regular access to telephones? Nathan: Yes, but that was during the one hour outside of
your cell. There were only 4 phones per 60
inmates. They would usually send half the unit
out of their cells at a time so that meant you
were competing with 30 other inmates to use the
phone during that time.
JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls? Nathan: The only way you can call is collect and I'm not
sure how much it cost.
JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out? Nathan: No, collect only.
JM: Did the jail screen your calls? Nathan: Yes, they tell you they do. I'm sure they did.
