JM: How long was your sentencing for? Clinton: 210 days in Solano County Tyrone: 180 days for felony evasion.
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? Clinton: Yes. Horrible. You're in a dungeon like
setting with nothing but bail numbers on the
wall and a pay phone. It was crowded in there.
Men were sleeping on cots on the floor. I was in
there for about 8 hours. Once you are booked in
you are sent to classification where you are
observed for an unspecified amount of time.
It takes about 4 days to go through that
process. Tyrone: Yes, in booking. It was dirty, stressful. They
don't give you any information. I kept telling
them my wife was going to bail me out but they
only took me out when immigration came to talk
to me. My wife paid the bail but they wouldn't
let me out because I was on an INS hold. There
have been a couple times where I was arrested
and then have bailed out right away. My wife
paid my bail an hour after I was booked but they
wouldn't let me out.
