Interview with Hugh, Jennifer and Johnny

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. (9/18/10-5/12/11)

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.
