Karen: I was in Summit county jail and then sentenced to Drug Court Program
Will: I got 3 years probation- I was in summit County jail for 6 months awaiting trial.

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?
Jen: I spent 12 hours in a holding cell wih 15 other women. they crowded all of together girls that hadnt been even booked with those of us who were senteced, they didnt care that there was no room even to sit, when night came they gave a mats tht were nose to nose with each other to move you had to step on the others girls mats to even use he bathroom
Karen: Yes I was in a holding cell. It was extremely cold and they only give you the jumpsuit to wear. It fits loosely so without an undershirt, I was freezing. Cinder block housing with a metal sink/toilet. The smell was bad.
Will: No I was taken back to my pod and once thy confirmed that I received probation they finally let me out of lockdown. After 6 months I was finally able to walk around the pod even though it was only for a couple hours prior to my release. When I first arrived in jail, I was placed alone in a holding cell with no mat or blanket, freezing on the concrete floors from 5pm-5am. That was almost as bad as being handcuffed to a bed for 40 days, 24hrs a day.
