Sytch on her prison stint in Pennsylvania: Well this this was totally different. I got a driving on a suspension (charge) and Im suspended from the old DUIs so its a mandatory six months in jail in New Jersey. I did my six months for that but that violated the probation. I was still on in Pennsylvania, so I had to max out that time and that was maxed out to May 21st. I did just over 10 months. Fun stuff. But Im all done with that probation in Pennsylvania now. They cant do anything else to me. That five years of them sending me back all the time for sneezing in the wrong direction is done. Thats over. My P.P in Pennsylvania was horrible. It doesnt matter what I would do. If I was a half an hour late for an appointment she would violate me and stick me in jail. It was just b——t. But Im done with them. Its all over. Im good here (in New Jersey). I just cant drive because if I do, when I get pulled over itll be another mandatory six months.
On what the experience was like for her: They make it out to be a lot worse on TV than it actually is. Its really not that bad. Its doable if you can make it through. You dont even have to wake up if you dont want to. But Im diabetic, so they would come and wake me up at 4: 30 every morning to do a sugar check and to give me insulin so at 4: 30 every morning. Its a medical thing so you have to do it. Then Id go back to sleep for a couple hours and then usually around 8 oclock is when they pop your door and you can go out and watch TV. And you know breakfast comes and all that stuff. I didnt eat a lot of their food though because the foods horrible. But yeah, all you basically do is watch TV, play cards (and) you know you can sleep all day if you want to. Theres a lot of girls who color, like those adult coloring books so theyre coloring.”
Sytch on how it was run: Where I was anyway, there was no strict format of things you have to do. You could be lazy or you could do something. I actually got a job there so I could have something to do. I got the best job in the jail because they trusted me and they knew I wasnt gonna like run. So I was cleaning the wardens office and the lobby and I got to take the garbage out by myself into the parking lot where all the cars are. They trusted me that I was gonna come back and not run down the street.
