My bad. I was "in the jail", not to be taken as "in jail" as doing time or such
. So yeah I was in a holding cell. They hold you their until your arraignment, when you set a court date to be tried. So you can get bailed out or else you stay until the next time the court holds arraignments. I am not positive I am using it correct terms, but I think so.
I would go off on why it bothers me, but that is offtopic. Main point, that kid shouldn't have been in jail, let alone with a violent criminal. Also, the overcrowing situation is asinine.
