"There are four guards watching over the women inside the dorm but they are not armed. Our inmates have been charged with a variety of crimes and there is a special holding area for anyone who behaves violently but, so far, there have been no such incidents involving Miss Rodriguez."
Rodriguez's day begins at 6.30AM with an early morning call from the guards. A simple breakfast of eggs, cereal, meat, tea and coffee is then served to the prisoners in a communal dining area. After breakfast the women are allowed to share a communal shower to get washed.
They are allowed access to a communal recreational area where they can read, play board games (like chess or dominoes) and interact with one another. A television set is also provided, allowing Rodriguez to catch-up on the events in the outside world or perhaps happenings on the latest episode of 'Lost.'
Lunch is served at 12.30PM and consists of a variety of vegetables, fish, meat or chicken with fruit juices, milk or coffee.
After lunch, the inmates are allowed out for one hour of exercise in a large outdoor area where they can play games or mingle with one another before going back inside the correctional center, which was built in 1913.
Around 1,000 men are housed in adjacent buildings but at no time are they allowed to interact with the women. A simple dinner is served at 4:00PM consisting of dishes like meatloaf, chicken or pasta with potatoes and vegetables.
The inmates are then allowed back into the communal area where they can watch television or play board games before being led back to their dorm for lights-out at 9.30PM. Visits are restricted to Saturdays and Sundays at the facility. Rodriguez is expected to be released this weekend
