[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Malkor] Thank you all for coming, and being open-minded in this case...
[Malkor] For many months it has been known to a select few apprentices that our beloved Chum...
[Malkor] has been cavorting with the undine and darshaks...
[Malkor] It was not until recently, however, that the extent of his crimes was realized.
[Malkor] It seems that Chum, the powerful sorcerer who can bend reality to a certain amount...
[Malkor] ... is the one who created the darkness that now hampers the defense of our town and allows darshaks and undine...
[Malkor] to invade our town hidden behind the cloak of darkness.
[Malkor] I now call Noah to testify about
[Malkor] the sorcery chum preformed on him
[Malkor] witness: noah
[Haengemie] Thank you, Malkor
[Haengemie] Noah, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Noah. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinant facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Noah, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Noah] I have witnessed Chum's Behaivor...
[Noah] I have witnessed Chum's Behaivor...
[Noah] He has set me on _fire_
[Noah] He is helping the darshak destroy this town.
[Noah] I believe he should be punished!
[Noah] He is a threat to this town!
[Noah] He is trying to kill us all
[Noah] I am afraid of him... darshak powers...
[Noah] I see only evil in his eyes
[Noah] Dark, cold, lifeless eyes...
[Noah] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Noah
[Haengemie] Chum, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Chum] Look, normally I try to be a pretty nice guy, but I'm really getting tired of BS court cases on me.
[Chum] I urge you guys to vote FRIVOLOUS and MAXIMUM JAIL TIME, and join me in putting an end to this crap.
[Chum] I'll not waste any more of your time, as Malk has.
[Chum] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Chum
[Haengemie] Malkor, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Malkor] Malkor frowns
[Malkor] Chum is a threat to our peaceful town as long as he is allowed to practice his dark magics at willl.
[Malkor] That is why I ask you, the good citizens of puddleby, to imprison him so that he can do no harm.
[Malkor] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Malkor
[Haengemie] Chum, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Chum] Look, Malk thinks it's funny to call Chum to court. Ha ha.
[Chum] You could be doing something else.
[Chum] Frivolous. Max Jail Time. I Urge you to stop the insanity.
[Chum] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Chum
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 3
  Votes guilty: 0
  Votes frivolous: 5
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Malkor this court has found your case frivolous.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] Jury, please note: one prior conviction in the past year.
[Haengemie] And, because I find the friviolity of this case to be contemptuous,...
[Haengemie] I'm going to double the maximum penalty (360 min/3000 c)
[Haengemie] I suggest that the jury recommend a stiff sentence.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Malkor's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 1080 min
  Total recommended fine: 6000c
  Total jurors: 8
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 135 min/750c

[Haengemie] Malkor, you are hereby sentenced to spend 135 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 750 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (745c) as additional jail-time of 151 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.

Court adjourned at 10:42 on 29 Spring, 534
