do a stint

< Previous | Next >
Hello,

I wonder if I have to translate "a stint" by "courte période" in the following sentence :

You just did a stint at Five Points Correctional, and within a week of your release you were breaking into someone's apartment.

A police woman interviewes a suspect.

    Je ne dirais pas "courte" période. Je dirais juste "Tu viens just de faire un séjour à la FPC, et en une semaine après ta libération tu cambriolait un appartement."
