Interview with Victor and Mike

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Victor: I was sentence to a "5-flat," which was 5 years in prison with a possibility to parole in 1 year. However, I maxed out my sentence.
Mike: I was sentenced to four years and three months.

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?
Victor: Yeah, I sat in the holding cell and waited for the next movement of prisoners back to the cell blocks. It was a relief, because I was given 5 years instead of 7 and could finally get the hell out of that jail.
Mike: There was time in a holding cell before and after sentencing. It just depended on when the guards wanted to bring you back and how many other inmates there were. The first appearance there were five of us and I just listened to the other guys talk. I wasn't too interested in speaking to them.
