JM: How often could you receive visitors? Sparkie: 4 days a week Craig: A couple times a week. Allison: I believe 4 times a week for 20 minutes each visits.
Visits were short and went by quickly.
JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you? Sparkie: yes it took them 2 hours to see me for 20 min Craig: From what people who visited me said, it wasn't
that bad. My wife said it took about thirty
minutes, another visitor said about ten minutes. Allison: They told me it was not too bad, although sometimes
weekends were tough due to volume. I think after
one's initial visit the process was easier.
JM: What was the visiting environment like? Sparkie: glass and you could hardly hear your visitor and
they could hardly hear you Craig: A room with about 15-20 windows with glass
inbetween you and your visitor. It was a little
hard to hear. Allison: Little 1/2 stalls with thick glass between me and
my family. Very close to other inmates and
visitors and often very difficult to hear. There
were little speakers (somewhat difficult to reach)
and often clogged with wrapppers and garbage.
often the area smeeled very baddly, making me
naseous-people were vomiting next to me.
