Randolph County Jail
790 New Century Drive
Traci: Well, the times I was at Randolph I was just being ridden in to make my court appearance to deal with the court hearings on the child endagement charge. This was all happening while I was serving time at the state facility. So, there wasn't any kind of sentencing for Randolph, I was just brought back and forth.
Mama: Maximum sentence was 40 years, I had 15 days.
JM: Did you spend time in a holding cell after your sentencing? If so, what was that like? If you didn't where did they they take you instead?
Traci: It was all at Randolph.

Randolph County provides inmates with three meals per day. These meals are served on a typical jail schedule. Breakfast is at 6:30am, breakfast at 11:30am and dinner at 4:30pm. Unfortunately, the food does not rate very well.
The one meal that one inmate reported was the best was the cereal and boiled eggs. Inmates who have money on their books can order additional snack from the canteen once a week. This is highly recommended if possible. Having food choices other than what the jail serves can make serving your time a little bit easier.
Passing the Time
One challenge that comes with being incarcerated is fighting boredom and finding ways to stay busy while waiting for the time to pass. Randolph County allows inmates with money on their books to buy crosswords, word searches, coloring books and sketching pads.
Inmates can go "outside" on occasion, which is a cement room with a gate ceiling which allows you to see the sky. The jail has some books available for inmates to read, and they also provide regular church services.
Keeping in touch with family and friends on the outside is a high priority for most people who are serving time. Randolph County allows inmates to have visitors one time per week. Visitors need to check in about an hour and a half before visitation. Visits are held in a small room that has about five telephones, which inmates and visitors talk into.
