JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail? Tom: Feed them as much as you can bfore going in. Its
not a rough jail, food is terrible. Most
important thing you can do is write letters.
Visita can be good but they can also be too
emotinal for some guys who bring that back into
the jail. Abe: They should become familiar with visitation schedule
and policies. They should also be aware of the
consequences for breaking the rules. Family should
also have a list for what IS and IS not acceptable
items for you to receive from the outside
JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them? Tom: Keep your mouth shut. Be respectful and don't
tell on anybody. Abe: Mind your own business and follow all rules,
regulations and directions from the deputies as well
as civilian jail staff. Reading and excercise is a
good practice for occupying time.
JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to. Tom: Monroe, Elmira, Lakeview Abe: Monroe County Jail, Livingston County Jail, Tompkins
