JM: How long was your sentencing for? Matthew: I was sentenced to 24 months of probation.
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? Matthew: I spent all my time in Kane County Jail after my
sentencing. Due to different circumstances I
violated my probation a ouple of times and
warrants were issued for me. In Kane County
Jail, you were only allowed in your cell to
sleep between 9pm and 5am. The rest of the time
you had to stay out in the 'dayroom' with all the
other inmates. There was not enough seats for
everybody and most of the men laid on the hard
tile floor all day. We were not allowed to bring
out blankets or pillows. I was beaten severly in
one of the dayrooms after trying to protect a
young man that was being beaten by 5 men.
