Closing Advice

Interview with Jen, Karen and Will

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Jen: please remember that this is an awful experiance and no one should has to go though the shame and pain that these people inflick for no other reason then being mean
Karen: I want them to know that it is extremely cold and to wear a white thermal shirt, white socks, a white bra without underwire, so they could keep them. Keep money on their books so that they can purchase some snacks or personal hygiene products and if you can keep money on the phone so they can call you.
Will: As long as they have money on their books and get regular visits they can actually live prety well.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Jen: dont go to jail but if you do make the best of it, mind your business stay out of trouble
Karen: The most important thing is to stay to yourself, do not gossip!!!! and DO NOT loan your things because they will never be returned and then you are singled out as a weak person and you will get taken advantage of.
Will: Don't try to challenge the deputies there. Its a no win situation and they can make your life miserable. Its just not worth it. Mind you own busines and do your time.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Karen: Stark County Jail ORW (Ohio Reformatory for Women) Marysville, Ohio Trumbull Correctional Facility NorthEast PreRelease Center...Cleveland, Ohio
