JM: How many different blocks were there? Karina: I don't know for the whole jail... for the women
there were 3. One for regular population, one
for trustees and one for max. Taylor: there were 8 cells n my pod. but there was a
glass separating our pod from another pod which
had the sentenced inmates. If someone had a bench
warrant they would be over there serving their
JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they? Karina: Regular, Trustee, and Max. Taylor: no they didn't have names
JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks? Karina: See above. Taylor: i had a simple little charge but became friend
with someone that was in there for homicide and
another that was in there for simple possession
and another in there for possession for herion..
it was all different.
JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks? Karina: The difference was mostly between trustee and
regular pods. Trustees could come out of their
rooms earlier, got to stay out of rooms later,
had more freedom to go out of their rooms and
pods and speak to the officers personally, could
watch TV longer (even when they were in their
rooms). You are always supposed to stay in
uniform out of room but trustees didn't have
to. In max you have nothing but a toilet, a
sink and a shower. Most of the people are in
there are murderers or those who attempt
suicide. They can't have paper, pencils,
anything. They have to wear a paper suit.
Their food is all together. They can't have
spoons or anything like that. The food is like
astronaut food, all cooked into a blob. Taylor: the nicest part was the flat screen tvs, real
mirrors, carpet, long showers.. worst part was
not being able to leave.
