Closing Advice

Interview with Charles and Nick

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Charles: Often times if a person is in jail it doesn't mean they are guilty. My adivce: back them 100%. Support them how ever you can and get them good solid legal representation.
Nick: This is not a vacation and regardless of what has happened in the past there reactions could make a difference in the outcome after release.If someone is destined to be a criminal maybe there is no hope for change.Today the statistic's prove that 80 % of our local jail populations are either drug or alcohol related.I can tell you incarceration is not meant for rehabilitation.What family and friends do could make a difference in the final outcome.Although there are groups like anger management,commitment to change, and GED classes they have a purpose but often I believe the facilitators are there for a paycheck

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Charles: Don't do a crime that you know they you can't do the time. Focus on constructive things like studying the law. Often times a person gets arrested for certain crimes and they don't even know their legal rights.
Nick: Do the time don't let it do you, mentally pre-pare yourself for what is about come. Someone is going to be dictating your every more.Find the clicks and stay away from them.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Charles: Clinton Dannemora
Nick: NY State prison Gawanda
