JM: How often could you receive visitors? Tom: Legal visits are whenever. For family and friends
I want to say 2 days a week, maximum 90 minutes a
visit. Abe: Once per week in the pod that I was housed in at
Wayne County Jail.
JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you? Tom: An hour, 45 to 20 minutes if there wasn't a crowd
and the guards were in a good mood. Abe: I heard it was a pretty involved process not only on
visiting day but also trying to schedule the visits
in the very first place.
JM: What was the visiting environment like? Tom: Long stainless steel bench with and other side is
another bench. Face to face. Abe: It was a large room with tables and glass
partitions. It was dreary and looked very
outdated. The guards were constantly watching to
avoid the transmission of contraband between
inmates and visitors. The guards were also very
rude during visiting time not only to the inmates
but the visitors as well.
