Clera, reporting.

[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Bane] ...
[Bane] Phew
[Bane] Ok
[Bane] Earlier today I found a Frog hopping around in town
[Bane] And I decided to take him to Master Ma'Ta's where he would be safe
[Bane] So, in North Forest, I died and preceded to depart, the saftey of the Frog on my mind
[Bane] When I returned there was a small crowd gathered, somewhat protecting me from Ferals
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Bane] And then Haseo came and killed him
[Haengemie] Thank you, Bane
[Haengemie] Haseo, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Haseo] Sorry Bane
[Haseo] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Haseo
[Haengemie] Bane, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Bane] All of us older Exiles know that killing Frogs is a serious offense, as many deaths occur when they get revenge.
[Bane] I lost a friend, but the lives of everyone in Puddleby was at stake.
[Bane] I ask not for fines against Haseo
[Bane] If they are implemented, I will repay him
[Bane] I ask only for a small jail sentence, as a warning to other Would-Be Frog Killers
[Bane] I know Haseo is not evil, he is probably a very good exile.
[Bane] But these crimes against Frogs must not continue!
[Bane] Done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Bane
[Haengemie] Haseo, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Haseo] oh yes......
[Haseo] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Haseo
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 0
  Votes guilty: 1
  Votes frivolous: 5
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Bane this court has found your case frivolous.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Bane's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 60 min
  Total recommended fine: 1500c
  Total jurors: 6
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 10 min/250c

[Haengemie] Bane, you are hereby sentenced to spend 10 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 250 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (97c) as additional jail-time of 7 minutes.
