Closing Advice

Interview with Dale

JM: What else would you want a friend or family member to know if they have a loved one going to this jail?
Dale: It's not like what one sees on television. Mercer County might be abnormal in this regard, as I'm sure Riker's or Cook County would be a more difficult affair. If an inmate can keep his head about him and obey the rules, it should not be too horrific an experience.

JM: If somebody knows they will be serving time in this jail what is your advice to them?
Dale: Obey the rules to the letter, and make an effort to get along. I was told by a guard upon admission that so long as I treat them like gentlemen, they'd do the same for me. It was true. Do not by any means start trouble; this will only make your time there worse, and reflect poorly on you in the courts.

JM: Please list any other jail or rehab facilities you have been to.
Dale: I was released prior to sentencing so that I might attend court-ordered rehab at a facility called White Deer Run.
