Closing Advice

Interview with Pat and Sam

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Pat: Stay to yourself, get into reading and most importantly, spend as much time in the law library researching your case until you know it back to front. no one, even a lawyer and especially a public defender will care about your outcome like you will.
Sam: Be patient, and be understanding. Your loved one will deal with many things that you can't expect to understand. Just be there for them mentally and emotionally as best as you possibly can.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Pat: if you are a substance abuser, don't take any kind of supervision because you will never make it through. Finish your time and be done with it instead of dragging through the different parts of the system.
Sam: Make sure you have contact information for anyone you want to keep in contact with. Don't harass your loved ones and others you keep in contact with as they don't understand much of what you'll experience, and remember that they did not put you in there. Take responsibility for your actions that landed you in there, and be focused on bettering yourself for when you get out.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Pat: somerset, essex, mercer, craf, southern state, yardville, turning point plus some faciilites in other states.
Sam: Mountainview Youth Correctional Facility Albert C. Wagner Correctional Facility Garden State Correctional Facility Bayside State Prison
