JM: How long was your sentencing for? Pat: % years probation with special condition of
treatment. Sam: Sentencing was brief. It took all of 15-20 to go
through the motions.
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? Pat: After sentencing I spent some more time in the
bullpen before the next trip and since I was housed
in the county and had an immigration hold, I was
transferred to the ICE pod. Sam: After being sentenced, I was transferred back down
to the holding cell. Then the waiting game began.
You sit down there and wait for the transport van
to "arrive", which means when they feel like
bringing you back to the county jail. Sometimes
they say they are waiting for more people to
transport, but I've seen them sitting around and
talking and laughing amongst themselves or eating
or whatever until they are ready to transport
whoever is there.
