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

  Total recommended jail time: 660 min
  Total recommended fine: 2500c
  Total jurors: 10

[Haengemie] Samwise, you are hereby sentenced to spend 66 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 250 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (250c) as additional jail-time of 33 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] In addition, Samwise, I'm going to banish you from the city limits for 54 days.
[Haengemie] After you've served your jail-sentence, I suggest you sneak out of town quietly, and don't let the guards catch you.
[Haengemie] Judge Haengemie bangs his gavel
[Haengemie] This court is adjourned.
