JM: How long was your sentencing for? Hugh: I was sentenced to 12 months deferred
judgement. I had to go to drug classes and be
randomly drug tested. If you complete the
program they dismiss all your charges. Jennifer: 180 days in jail with half Time and 3 years of
formal probation. Johnny: Custody: 355 total days; 237 actual days, 118 conduct credits.
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? Hugh: I was in a holding cell. It is a room with a
pay phone and a list of all the bail bondsmen.
This gives you a chance to try to bail out and
contact family, etc. I was in there for 4-5
hours. There are about 9 different holding
cells. There are rubber rooms, drug tanks, and
different cells for male and female. Jennifer: Yes I spent at least 4 hours in the holding cell.
Which we call IRC. It was really cold and kinda
scary i cryed being in there everything hits you
hard knowing your not going to be with loved ones. Johnny: I did spend time in a holding cell after sentencing. It was traumatic.
I was either alone or with a small number of fellow inmates. We
were sometimes given food to eat if it we were being held during
lunchtime. The duration of my confinement in a holding cell(s)
post-sentencing ranged from 20 minutes to 35 minutes.
