JM: How many different blocks were there? Tonya: In minimum where I was there were approximately
14 dorm type rooms.
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? Tonya: No names other than the Bldg itself which was the
Bernadette Bldg. The rooms had numbers.
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Tonya: More troublesome inmates were at one end of a
very long hallway and we were at the other end.
If anyone misbehaved however they would be taken
to segregation which was in the other bldg.
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Tonya: Minimum security was nicer than the other Min/Max
bldg. because there were windows that you could
actually see out of and open! Max windows have
permanent mesh over them which makes it difficult
to see anything outside. Getting to GO outside
was wonderful after 3 weeks in Max while being
processed. Also, in minimum you could have food
brought in at visits which was nice.
Worst part? Just the fact that it was jail.
