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?
Seth: after sentencing they take you back to your cell block where you go back to the routine until the day the marshals' come to get you in the middle of the night
Clark: I waited months in jail to arrive at my sentencing date (i.e. my bond was revoked due to catching the aforementioned misdemeanor OWI) so that when I was finally sentenced, and was authorized to serve it on probation, I was released fairly quickly afterwards. I would say it was about 3 hours after court the order came down to the cell block. I was taken from the block and put into a holding cell for processing. This part took an hour or two, and then I was released.
Lisa: I was in a holding cell with other women. I had accepted a plea so others were not happy. I was a little intimadated them and just stayed in the smaller cell
