Interview with Jenna, Diane, Norman and Andrea

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Jenna: too long - it seemed extra precautions because of 9/11 were not fully understood by the officers - so we spent extra time walking around & not knowing where we were to be held before court. ( 9/11 happened over 6 years before hand - i think thats plenty of time to figure out how to proceed with the job at hand )
Diane: I got time served after spending one week in Martin County.
Norman: 1 year 6months 9 days
Andrea: i was sentenced to 3 months in county jail

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?
Jenna: holding cell had obvious damage - & was recently painted or sprayed with made one of the pregnant girls sick - several times - about 2 1/2 - 3 hours later they removed us & informed us there was a problem up stairs - that they did not forget us - as for the pregnant woman that was sick - this is what you get when you decide to break the law - she should have thought of that then.
Diane: I did, and it was the worst part of all because I was put in a holding cell with convicted murderers and prostitutes.
Norman: yes i was held in the holding cell after i was sentenced for a few hours before they took me back to the main jail it was very crowded and was a horrible experience!!
Andrea: spent about 2 hours in a holding cell at the court house, we were eventually transferred to the actual jail, where we spent an addition 2-3 hours in a holding cell while they processed information
