Calloway refused to make photocopies [of my letters] because they, he determined, are not law work. However, my letters ARE legal work, and deputies are allowed to photocopy it for me. Just now when I asked Calloway for two more copies, he came back and said, ‘not allowed – unless its being sent to a lawyer.’ So I showed him the list of lawyers I was sending it to – he even recognized names on the list (he also knows I don’t have a lawyer and I need one). Basically, they don’t want me to use their copy machine as a letter-sending machine gun against Jon Stout – but they must: I told him, “It’s like ACSO and I have each other by the throat.” He said, “Yeah.” I said, “Let me go and I’ll let you go and nobody gets hurt.” Funny, no?
I obtained my copies today, and I am mailing them to the list of layers that you gave me to ask for legal advice – and representation.
Big changes around here: Half the toilets have never worked in D dorm…yesterday we had a plumber here.
Mail delivery is being fixed: In the past only Sharon Price and one other person had access to the mailbox – so it had to pass by her, and it delayed delivery. Now, all deputies can get to the mailbox.
E-cigarettes are likely to be available soon
The jail has never provided “gain time” which allow prisoners flexibility within their sentence – other counties have such a program in place. However, Ashe County purchased this over-sized jail and has been working to keep it full. So, despite the recommendation of “sentencing credits” by NC state officials, it was never embraced in Ashe county because “a half full jail is just as expensive to run as a full jail.”
