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?
Ray: After seeing the judge, I went back to the holding cell with the same lively characters plus a couple new additions that were on bond and monus a few for being innocent. All you can do is sit back and listen to the crazy stories that are generated.
Oscar: I spent all of my time pretty much in holding cells due to my irritable temper and personality, I was not supposed to be put in dorms any longer even though they violated that also.
Marshall: yes i did, it smelled and was very cold.. people were very rude i was thirsty and hungry, the sandwich was nasty and i just wanted to go back home.
