JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Greg: The first deal the public defender offered me was 15yrs.Naturally I said no he came back minutes later and said 6yrs.I thought if he was gonna drop it that much something wasn't right so I refused.

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?
Greg: The time I was waiting for my court date I was locked up a man next to my block hung himself one night .during the day I was let go from 6am till 5pm for work-release.
