Interview with Chandra

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Chandra: Oct 14 was my court date. I was thinking I was in felony court because I was charged as a felon. I walked up to the pd's desk to talk to them about my charges and I wasn't on the docket. Then I found out I was in misdemeanor court. The court doors were locked because at that point I was late. A public defender told me they were offering me 59 days served. I was released from Sumpter at that court hearing after 45 days served.

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?
Chandra: Yes I spent time in a holding cell. Sumpter County jail is fairly new so its not too bad as far as the facilities go. There weren't a lot of other people there. It was early in the morning and I was tired. They were rude. I asked them to get me a piece of paper and pencil so I could write a list of things to get taken care of. They wouldn't do that. I was in the holding cell from 3 am and 1 or 2 in the afternoon. This jail had a new girl coming every other day or so.
