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?
Jerry: After court I was immediately taken back to my housing area. because this jail is so small it is rare to be sitting in any holding cell for a period of over 30 minutes in between moving about the jail.
Pat: Yes I was in a holding cell for probably close to 2 1/2 hours after sentencing,It was awful to have to sit in that nasty stinky area crowded with other inmates realizing your future was over it would have ben easier to go straight back to my cell to deal with what I was going threw.
