   Abstaining: 0

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

[Haengemie] Telan, you are hereby sentenced to spend 49 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 961 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (957c) as additional jail-time of 121 minutes.
