Interview with Charles

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Charles: There were 8 units. Each one was a big open space that was divided by five foot high cinder block walls. Inside each of those cubicles was the space for the inmates.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Charles: Each unit had name like Gramble A or Gramble B or whatever they wanted to call it.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Charles: Everyone was intermixed.

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Charles: The nicest part of the unit was that after ten pm they had quiet time so people could get to sleep. The worst was seeing fights right in front of you.
