Interview with Sarah, Drew and Paul

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
Sarah: Probation for 4 years for my felonies, and 6 months for my misdeamors. If I violate my probatiom I will go to prison for 4 years with no good time.
Drew: I was sentenced to a five year differed probation
Paul: five years

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?
Sarah: The holding cell was awful, one of the worst I have seen. It was cold, there were way too many people in each one. The jail only had two for the women. We were not given a blanket and they didn't feed us. I was there almost a full day with no shower, no toothbrush, no nothing.
Drew: After my sentencing I was put back in the holding cell were I waited till all court was finished we ate sack lunch talked shit about cases listened to people lie
Paul: i was held in delta, which in my county is the holding cells for people that are waiting to catch chain up to a tdcj prison. These cells surprisingly are single cells with in and outs every hour. If u get stuck in your cell then you have to wait the hour to be let out. It was very lonely and being secluded really makes you think about alot of things. Other inmates constantly screaming so the inmates in other cells far away can hear them. very loud and noisy.
