Interview with Allie and Jason

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?

Jason: yes we do except on Saturday night during movie tear

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?

Jason: some could easily spend 100 busck a week i only made 1 to 2 calls a week so 6 bucks
