Interview with Roxie and Jaime

JM: How many different blocks were there?
Roxie: I believe there were three cell blocks for women; plus a dorm-type setting.
Jaime: 7 normal pods, medical, suicide watch, the hole

JM: Did they have names? If so, what were they?
Roxie: I don't recall the names, I believe I was in 'T' cell block.
Jaime: A pod B pod C pod D pod E pod F pod G pod Not sure the names of medical pod And adseg (administrative segregation-"the hole")

JM: Which types of inmates were housed in the different blocks?
Roxie: One was for Felony Charges; One was for Misdemeanors; One was for Protective Custody. For example, there was a young lady accused of murdering her child upon birth. She was in PC. There were also some single and double cells.
Jaime: A,B,C,D,E,F&G pods are normal pods where most male and female inmates are housed. The medical pod is for severely ill and mentally ill inmates. Suicide watch people are in a big openroom with cots, they get paper nightgowns to wear and are constantly monitered. Adseg is the hole, its where people who are in trouble go

JM: What do you remember being the nicest and worst parts about the different blocks?
Roxie: They were all so open. No real privacy between the different cells. The PC was particularly open for all to see into. The dorm setting allowed for more movement, yet very little privacy. I had no problem with my 12-person cell nor the ladies I was housed with. It was set up conveniently.
Jaime: I cant really recall anything nice about that jail except maybe theres not much fear of it burning down since its mostly cement. I remember the guard wasnt in the guard tower for quite awhile and some guy a couple pods over from me had a heart attack and it took banging on the walls and yelling from everyone in 3 pods for several minutes before they even came to investigate. It was super cold in the winter, dirty and overcrowded.
