[Haengemie] Madcat this court has found your case frivolous.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] On Spring 151 of 534, Madcat was found frivolous, having charged Syndrael

  of forcing me to depart.

[Haengemie] On Spring 159 of 534, Madcat was found frivolous, having charged Syd

of wasting everyone`s time.
[Haengemie] On Spring 168 of 534, Madcat was found frivolous, having charged Chum
of assisting in evilness.
[Haengemie] Due to the 4 priors in the past year,
[Haengemie] the maximum sentence is raised to 240 minutes in jail or a fine of 2000c,
[Haengemie] or, possibly, a combination of jail and fine, depending on the jury's recommendations.
[Haengemie] And, because I find the friviolity of this case to be contemptuous,...
[Haengemie] I'm going to double the maximum penalty (480 min/4000 c)
[Haengemie] I suggest that the jury recommend a stiff sentence.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Madcat's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.
Total recommended jail time: 2580 min
Total recommended fine: 16500c

Avg recommended jail/fine: 215 min/1375c
[Haengemie] Madcat, you are hereby sentenced to spend 215 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 1375 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (1355c) as additional jail-time of 171 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] Judge Haengemie bangs his gavel
