Interview with Ricky

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Ricky: Yes at allotted times we could access phones, unless you were in segregation.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Ricky: Phone calls were expensive, but never to the inmate- the charges were reversed, so it was the person being called that was billed.

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Ricky: No, the charges were reversed:

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Ricky: Yes. The calls were screened on a regular basis.
