"Upstate Girls"

17 of 40

"The Girls Outside the Courthouse" Three days after Jessica was released from jail she accompanied her friends to see their boyfriends, who were being brought from the jail to the courtroom for an audience with the judge. Visiting jail and 'showing up for court' when a boyfriend or girlfriend is locked up is a bigger part of the social life of a teenager in Troy than going to the movies. Jessica once told me that she wished that she could be locked up again so she would not be bored as she often is since her release. Jessica said that if you could decide when to get out that 'jail would not be that bad.'
