[Haengemie] Syd 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 (240 min/2000 c)
[Haengemie] I suggest that the jury recommend a stiff sentence.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Syd's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.

[Haengemie] Syd, you are hereby sentenced to spend 137 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 268 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (268c) as additional jail-time of 55 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
