Marcus: I waited for everybody else to get sentinced for an hour or two then was brought back to jail where i waited in another holding cell fo 7 hours to get an n.c.i.c. ran and was then released
Melissa: The holding cells that I was in were for Booking on the way into the jail and while being held for transfer. The "BullPen" holding cell for transfer was freezing but cleaner, had a private bathroom. I was here in my own clothes for approximately 12 hours awaiting transfer. The booking holding cells are filthy, filled with ants, there was old food from days before littered around, the toilet is in the open, and they were overcrowded to the point of 15 girls laying sideways on the floor on filthy mats, tripping over each other if anyone had to move. The "Mats" are not issued to each inmate, so imagine the germs on those. You get ONE blanket. If you are lucky, they'll toss you a "Brown Bag' meal of a roll, mystery meat, and an orange. No drink.
Andrea: The holding cells in Arapahoe are filthy, crawling with ants and overstuffed. I was held in "The Bullpen" from 9pm - 4:30am while awaiting release, then in a TINY holding cell at the release area from 4:30am-11am until processed for release. These cells are disgusting, unclean, unfit for humans.
