JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Ron: this was a nine month flat parole violation, for a, d.u.i..i got the nine flat becuase i have a no drinking condition known as a (5b)..i ended up later getting sentenced to 6mnths run concurant with the nine month violation,so really it was pretty fair,a lot of others were gettig alot more time then that .I got saved while I was in fresno co. awaiting court,& i think the lord had something to do with it..
Hugh: I was sentenced to six months jail time, five years felony probation, and a few other rehabilitation conditions.
Stevan: Six months but I only served 3 days

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?
Ron: yes !! it is very degrading no room to sit down unless you will sit on the dirty floor.. stainless steel sink/toilet combo that stinks and is very dirty hardly no water running out of the tap with no soap to wash up with & the overall attitude of the jail staff allready is that your a criminal lower life status you really feel lost lonely and that you,ve lost contact with your freedom..
Tiffany: The holding areas I saw were not suitable for any human. Writing on the walls as far back as 2008. I was there June 2010. stainless steel, combination toilet/sink was full of urine. Sometimes no toilet paper and dried feces on the walls.
Hugh: Yes, I was placed back in the holding cell. It was awful, there is no sense of time(no clocks) and you just want to be done. I just wanted to do my time and go home.
Stevan: Man hell ya I did It was a room with four walls one toilet a sink a fountain for drinking. With about 10 other dudes in their with me yuup
