Interview with Kevin

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Kevin: They had payphones in the pod. I think there was two.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Kevin: They were all collect calls. You could use quarters. I don't recall the specific charges but I sorta remember them being pretty steep.

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Kevin: You could only call collect. They didn't have any of that other stuff.

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Kevin: All the phone calls are recorded.
