Kite Line- March 6, 2020: Setting Us Up For Failure- Stories of Electronic Monitoring

This post was originally published on this site

This week, we return to the Breakaway Recovery House to share a conversation between Micol Seigel and four of the women who lived there: Hillary, Janet, Britney, and Kelsey. All four women interviewed have been on electronic monitoring at some point. They tell stories about their experiences under e-carceration, and the problems they suffered. From high costs, to repeated malfunctions, to the stigma and the need for an adequate support system, these women all have issues with e-carceration as a form of punishment. We shared stories from other women from Breakaway last fall, and now we return, with Micol asking about the end of their time with electronic monitoring and the struggles they faced.
