JM: How many different blocks were there? KENNY: Two, look like a high rise maximum security prison. That's what
people say who have been to a maximum security prison. One
block upstairs and one block downstairs. A block for trustees and a
block for females in the old part of the jail.
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? KENNY: I don't know all their names but the one that I do remember is C.R.
because of the blood that I saw all over him.
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? KENNY: The officers said the really bad crimes were on the top block
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? KENNY: I spent only like 7 hours on the top block with one other inmate.
I was moved to the lower block at 9 at night. So I wasn't let out
of the cell to talk with any of the inmates until I was downstairs.
On Monday thru Friday 7 a.m. till 10 a.m. half of the inmates get
out for 3 hours the other half get out from 7 p.m. till 10 p.m.
alternating the sides each week. We were locked down at 10
a.m. Friday morning till 7 p.m. Monday evening 81 hours. The
other side was locked down at 7 p.m. Friday till 7 a.m. Monday
We changed uniforms once a week. There was no hot water in
there from May 13 till my release on May 31. I was not allowed
along with the other inmates to take a hot shower from the 13
of May till I got home on the 31 of May. I begged along with
others to be moved to a facility with hot water. Released to come
back and finish my sentence when the hot water was repaired.
To go downstairs where the trustees were held where there was
hot water. I even offered to help fix the hot water heater. Denied
that by all staff even the Sgt. himself. People took cold showers
and got sick. There were skin rashes, staff infection and profuse
odor. I myself have a something on my face that the facility
nurse gave me antibiotics for.
They tried to hold me for an extra day. There are 720 hours in a
30 day sentence. I had to threaten to call the media and tell
them that they were holding me against my will and kidnapping
me. I was held till 4 p.m. may 31 because the media was outside
at the court house covering the dedication to the monument of
the fallen comrades. I found this out from one of the officers as
to why I would not be released while the media was out there.
