Interview with Allyson and Eric

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Allyson: 120 days (6 months)... I had already done 4 months at the time I was sentenced, and I was released on recognizance and I was able to stay in treatment and get a job.
Eric: One year and one day in Nebraska State Department of Corrections

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?
Allyson: Arrestees used to be held in Bedrock, the holding cell below the police station. It is dirty and they don't let you get clean or anything. Felons are put in a different section, and I was put in that section. The sewers backed up into the room while I was there. Bedrock was closed the year after I was there. The police had someone die in custody because of the health problems they weren't paying attention to. They moved holding over to the actual Douglas County Jail. Now you are processed and put into the main jail right away.
Eric: No, I returned to my original module for about three days then the transport came to get me I believe it was on a Saturday. Then I and about 6 other inmates sat in the holding cell for hours.
