Luis: I received 30 days in jail and 3 years of probation.
Scott: 30 days but i had a hold for another state
JM: Did you spend time in a holding cell after your sentencing? If so, what was that like? If you didn't where did they they take you instead?
Luis: After sentencing I had about 18 days to turn myself into the jail. I spent a few hours in the holding tank and was transferred to the annex where I spent about 2 weeks on the un-sentenced side before they moved me to the sentenced side
Scott: we were put in a cage that held around 30 or so people but there were only about 6 or so and there was a tv on the wall outside the cage and you were alowed to watch it as long as you sat up and kept your feet on the floor but it was going on 48 or more hours and we kept trying to lay down and finally they took us and put us in a holding cell for another ten hours which was worse but we were able to lay down on the concrete floor and sleep
Going to jail can be a scary experience. However, with the right information, you can feel better prepared for the day to day experiences of jail. We provide you with information from actual ex-inmates. These individuals have given information to help smooth out the process of going to jail, from sentencing to visitors and clothing in jail. While we can't promise jail won't still be hard, we can hope that the information you find here will help you make the transition as easy as possible.Where Does Our Information Come From?
The information you find on this site comes from ex-inmates of the jail. We spend hours and hours scouring the web to find the most qualified sources of information for day to day life in jail, people who have actually been there. The inmates have been selected to get the most accurate information possible. We choose inmates who spent significant time in jail and have been out as little time as possible. This means we can get you the best and most up-to-date insight into jail life possible.
