[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Althea] members of the jury, thank you foryour time.
[Althea] tonight in town, zonk did appear
[Althea] after some exchanges
[Althea] zonk was looking for a volunteer for experiements
[Althea] Malkor volunteered Algernon
[Althea] and then did swear allegiance to Zonk
[Althea] Zonk took algie
[Althea] and tortured him
[Althea] repeatedly
[Althea] we saw him fall in the scrolls to various implements
[Althea] Malkor volunteered Algie
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Althea] malkor should apy fo rhis allegiance and hurting algie
[Althea] witness: binky
[Haengemie] Thank you, Althea
[Haengemie] Binky, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Binky. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinant facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Binky, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Binky] I did see Malkor push the nieve Algernon forward
[Binky] I did see Malkor push the nieve Algernon forward
[Binky] He did not want to go, but trusted in Malkor
[Binky] And that trust got him hurt, more then once
[Binky] He caused Algernon much undue pain, for his own amusement I imagine
[Binky] But Algernon never raised his hand, as Malkor has stated.
[Binky] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Binky
[Haengemie] Malkor, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Malkor] Malkor rubs his sore tongeu...
[Malkor] Algernon was sitting in town...
[Malkor] and Zonk came by and said something about a test
[Malkor] Well, Algernon was looking pretty eager to prove his worth...
[Malkor] so, yeah, I encouraged him...
[Malkor] he needs self-confidence...
[Malkor] anyways, when I realized it was a _pain_ test I tried to restrain him...
[Malkor] but I can't hold back a heavy halflin'
[Malkor] and he raised his hand to volunteer
[Malkor] Malkor shrugs.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Malkor] I messed up, but it was good intentions
[Malkor] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Malkor
[Haengemie] Althea, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Althea] Algernon never offered himself forward. Malkor did not restrain him but kept pointing him out to Zonk. And laughed when he was picked.
[Althea] laughed wen he was picked by zonk
[Althea] Malkor offered a child up to demon, if you will.
[Althea] And Algernon suffered for it
[Althea] Malkor must not be allowed to abuse Algernon this way
[Althea] and his allegiance to zonk
[Althea] must be protested. Strongly. Decisively
[Althea] thank you
[Althea] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Althea
[Haengemie] Malkor, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Malkor] You do discredit Algernon by letting me take all the credit for his volunteerance...
[Malkor] What he did was noble, and saved many of his friends from enduring the pain test
[Malkor] And he was worthy of the test, he didnt' scream
[Malkor] He managed to do what he set out to accomplish
[Malkor] I applaud him for his courage.
[Malkor] To...
[Malkor] To give me credit for his noble actions...
[Malkor] Is an evil act
[Malkor] and that is why you must be found frivolous.
[Malkor] Malkor growls.
[Malkor] Done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Malkor

[Haengemie] Malkor this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] On Spring 155 of 534, Malkor was found frivolous, having charged Chums Mother

  of impersonation and harassment.

[Haengemie] Jury, please note: 2 prior convictions in the past year.

[Haengemie] Malkor, you are hereby sentenced to spend 60 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 500 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (479c) as additional jail-time of 61 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] In addition, Malkor, I'm going to banish you from the city limits for 9 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.
