Interview with Sean

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Sean: Yes and no. After moving to max 1 we only had access once aday. At new facility it was available anytime.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Sean: You could get a phone card for $10.00. This would allow you to make ten ten minute calls. Most inmates could not afford them so it was a commodity.

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Sean: Yes, I usually bought one every two weeks.

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Sean: Not sure, but they probally did.
