Closing Advice

Interview with Sparkie, Craig and Allison

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Sparkie: tell them to follow the rules and just do the time and if they can get a job
Craig: Set up a commissary account. You can set it up two way's. The first is to bring cash with you when you get sent to jail. They take out a $35.00 processing fee and the balance gets put into an account for you. That's the easist way to set up a commissary account. The second way is to have a family member come down to the jail and set up an account for you. Having a commissary account set up makes life in jail alot better. Also remember white thermals top and bottom.
Allison: There is no way to immediately call anyone (no working phone in booking). And when you do finally have access to pay phones it is difficult to figure out its use. If you are picked up on the streets, your family could wonder and worry about you for days.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Sparkie: where 2 pairs of underwear and have someone set up a commissary account right away
Craig: Set up a Commissary account, wear thermals, and stay out of trouble.
Allison: Money helps alot because commissary makes life inside alot easier. They should know there is a mandatory 50 dollar fee so you need to pay that before you have money for extras.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Sparkie: endeavor house
Craig: I've only spent one or two nights in a couple of other jails. Mostly for disorderly conduct. I was locked up at night and released in the morning. I spent a night in newark jail on Green street, Seabright, and up state NY. Like I said it was only for a night. It didn't compare to the time I spent in MCCI.
Allison: No other jails. I have been to drug rehab only
