Interview with castly and Sarah

JM: How long was your sentencing for?
castly: I was sentenced for a year to eighteen months for supposidly committing a felony. This sentence was to be carried out for the duration of the time frame involved. They told me that I was not to be released early as the sentence was firm in judgement. It was explained by me that if there were an early release that it would be decided by the court and was totally reliant of good conduct. They also explained that the facility was currently full to capacity and that a early release could be upheld due to over crowded conditions.
Sarah: i got sentenced to 4 years on probation

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?
castly: Yes. Immediately after sentencing was brought forward, I was confined for a period of three weeks within the holding compartments at Upshur county. This place was dump and the condition of all aspects of this place was similar to that of a pig pen. I mean the employees were rude and smelled of a foul oder almost all the time. There was one guard that would walk around with a fifth of vodka. He was drunk more than he was sober. The food was rotten and did not satisfy the appetite of no one. I literally feared for my life while I was there.
