Interview with Ricky

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Ricky: They were lettered, and I believe it went to N or M.

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Ricky: They were called "mods" and they were lettered. They also had special areas like segregation and protective custody.

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Ricky: You had general population, and that is where the majority of the inmates were housed- the you had protective custody, that's where the housed pedifiles and child molestors, and the. There was segregation, and that's where inmates who caused problems went.,

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Ricky: There rely were no "nice parts" about the blocks.. This was prison. It was designed to have "nice parts" some of the blocks were newer than others, and general population was almost always better than segregation- some kicks had better hesting or cooling, and some blocks had better views... But overall it was a rotten experience.
