JM: How long was your sentencing for? Dave: 11 months in jail but I only served 90 days. If
I had messed up probation I would have had to
serve the entire sentence. Technically I only
served 82 days because I did some classes that
took a few days off the 90.
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? Dave: I did spend time in a holding cell that is
connected to the court. I stayed there for
about 3 hours after I was sentenced. Right
after that, I got searched and then went right
to my cell at the jail.
I did spend time in holding when I was arrested
and put in for the weekend. There were a lot of
people in there for being drunk or whatever. It
wasn't too dangerous in there... I have heard
stories about being in there with rapists and
murderers while they waited to be transferred to
other places. It wasn't overly crowded. Its not
horrible but its not good... I couldn't shower
while I was in there. Miss: Yes, the holding cell is very gross. It
smelly, and dirty, and had a toilet which
is completely open for people to see.
They only give you toilet paper that's it.
And a blanket.. It's very uncomfortable.
