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
