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?
Charles: Yes. I was in Spartanburg 4 days, when a bench warrant showed up on my background for DUS 2nd, which added 30 more days to my sentence and I was shipped to Columbia on September 20, 2010.
Rich: yes, we were put in single cells for the full day. they moved us from the main jail to the courthouse in handcuffs and leg irons and put us in single cells until it was time to go to the courtroom, then back to a single cell. and our leg irons were left on us for approx. 8-9 hours even though we were still in a jail.
Kevin: Yes, it was in the old county jail. It was different than the new county jail, there were bars everywhere and it was much more unpleasant. I spent maybe an hour and was taken back to the new county jail.
Molly: No
Jeremy: Yes I did. There was a horrible roach infestation in the old county jail, which was condemned and deemed unfit for inmate housing.
Chad: waited in holding "area" until court was over, then back to the main jail
Laura: yes. the cell was small and cold for whatever reason i was unable to pull my little thin cover over me before 10pm while in my cell. it was quiet because i was in there by myself.
