Toby: not so bad since i was already used to jail.
J. Friday: I was already incarcerated when i went to court, so I just had to make the reverse trip back to my POD. It's about an 8 hour round trip to go to court from jail. You go through a whole series of holding cells on the way there, and on the way back. The whole process isnt pleasant at all, you move from one dank nasty cell to the next. With about 300 other inmates, all going to the same place. The closer you get to your courtroom, the less people there are in the cells with you. Finally, you're in a tiny cell right behind the courtroom, it's probebly 6 by 9, with 7-8 people. After court, it's the same thing in reverse.
Jeremy: Yes. Every inmate does. It was dark, nasty and stank like hell.
Keith: Unfair.
Lisa: Yes, it was long and cold. Too many inmates cramped into a small cell.
Jenny: Yes. Very boring. You're in a room with people you don't know, and it is always very cold there.
