Clera, reporting.

[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Cid] We all know Chum. He's our local ancient. But don't let the boyish exterior fool you, he's realy evil as I intend to prove.
[Cid] I think we've all had some dealings with this fellow, be them good or bad...
[Cid] ...but the ones we remember the most are the bad.
[Cid] Such bad things are intentional spawns...
[Cid] ancient abusive tools (muting, etc.)...
[Cid] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Cid
[Haengemie] Chum, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Chum] This is total BS.
[Chum] I'm sorry, but Cid's totally off the wall, here.
[Chum] (a) I'm not an ancient
[Chum] (b) I'm not evil
[Chum] (c) I never abused anything, ever
[Chum] I do my utmost to help all exiles and to be fair and evenhanded at all times.
[Chum] As far as I can tell, he's just dicking around with the court system...
[Chum] ...which is mildly ironic, given it's origins.
[Chum] I urge you to vote Frivolous, and give him max Jail time.
[Chum] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Chum
[Haengemie] Cid, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Cid] Hail, again.
[Cid] Yes, Chum is not an ancient, but he's a janitor to them, er something.
[Cid] Chum states he never abuses his powers.....
[Cid] :)
[Cid] I believe he's broken many a sunstone...
[Cid] ...a tool used by many edwards and valuade by most
[Cid] (i have some experiences with that)
[Cid] I'd like to call a witness to tell of his evil doings.
[Cid] witness: wrath
[Haengemie] Thank you, Cid
[Haengemie] Wrath, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Wrath. You have been calledto testify in this matter, please state the pertinant facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Wrath, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Wrath] Oh god...
[Wrath] Wrath clears his throat and prepares for some BS.
[Wrath] Ok I can only think of one evil thing from Chum.
[Wrath] One day a while back I was walking through the forest.
[Wrath] I was with little billy at the time.
[Wrath] We were picking fruit
[Wrath] When out came evil Chum!
[Wrath] he walked up to little billyt and started to pelt rocks and stikcs at him!
[Wrath] Little billy started to cry and i was helpless to do anyhitn
[Wrath] gChum is so um...intimadating?
[Wrath] Chum is so um...intimadating?
[Wrath] So I ask the Jury to plz fiund this monster guilty
[Wrath] Ha!rsh jail snetencing and a heavy fine
[Wrath] Harsh jail snetencing and a heavy fine!
[Wrath] Wrath cires for little billy.
[Wrath] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Wrath
[Wrath] lol
[Haengemie] Chum, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Chum] Heh.
[Chum] I guess I'll plead guilty to designing a courtroom where I can't see the witness, but I prommise restitution, soon :)
[Chum] Ok...
[Chum] So Cid BELIEVES I've broken a sunstone.
[Chum] yet I KNOW I neve rhave. Ever. For any reason.
[Chum] Cid BELIEVES I've made harmful spawns (or any spaawns)
[Chum] yet I *KNOW* I haven't. Ever. I don't spawn monsters.
[Chum] "no hints, no favours" and "no spawns".
[Chum] You've all hread me say it: "no. Go away"
[Chum] Again, I ruge frivolous and the maximum jail time.
[Chum] "urge"
[Chum] Cid is abusing the court system. You have the power to do something about it.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Chum] Vote frivolous.
[Chum] Vote jail time.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Chum
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 2
  Votes guilty: 1
  Votes frivolous: 6
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Cid this court has found your case frivolous.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] And, because I find the friviolity of this case to be contemptuous,...
[Haengemie] I'm going to double the maximum penalty (120 min/1000 c) , and suggest that the jury recommend a stiff sentence.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Cid's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 600 min
  Total recommended fine: 4250c
  Total jurors: 9
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 66 min/472c

[Haengemie] Cid, you are hereby sentenced to spend 66 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 472 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (247c) as additional jail-time of 16 minutes.

Court adjourned at 3:9 on 61 Winter, 534
