Frank: Some of the blocks, I would witness inmates having to give up their food to avoid fights so watching others be treated that way made me feel bad for them. The blocks would echo and that would drive me crazy. The nicest parts of being in jail was the spiritual connection I made with my higher power.
Adam: holding cells were absolutely horribly disqusistin the mens upstairs dorm was really nice the upstairs female dorm wasn't bad.the worst thing about Jefferson county jail is that staph infections go untreated and medical care is not an option.they treat you very disrespectfully.some of them even turn your call box off.
