To all who read these precepts, the following transcript of this trial is true and correct, to the best of my knowledge.
Clera, reporting.

[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Bison] Ther'anger tried to drag D'nah into the library
[Bison] when i said stop
[Bison] he didnt care
[Bison] so i got really upset
[Bison] then someone took a chain and dragged her away
[Bison] which was lucky
[Bison] plus
[Bison] D'nah was dead
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Bison] so that is not good
[Bison] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Bison
[Haengemie] Ther' Anger, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Ther' Anger] Any knowledgeable exile knows you can't put dead persons into the library. Its a common fact.
[Ther' Anger] Judging by Bisons' clothes and no profession one can tell he is new to Puddleby.
[Ther' Anger] I hope this forgiving jury may have mercy on his ignorance.
[Ther' Anger] If it is not possible to drag a person to al ibrary, why would I try?
[Ther' Anger] If it is not possible to drag a person to a library, why would I try?
[Ther' Anger] It makes no sense, and I can hope my witness can verify.
[Ther' Anger] witness: devil
[Haengemie] Thank you, Ther' Anger
[Haengemie] Devil, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Devil. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinent facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Devil, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Devil] he reset himself so he could be a mystic
[Devil] dragging someone who's fallen into the library is impossible as Ther said
[Devil] I know this, because I have tried it more than once
[Devil] so Bison is completely out of wack with his charges
[Devil] and Ther is innocent
[Devil] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Devil
[Haengemie] Bison, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Bison] im upset
[Bison] stating to Ther's karma, who would believe him?
[Bison] i would like to call a witness
[Bison] witness: d'nah
[Haengemie] Thank you, Bison
[Haengemie] D'nah, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Ther' Anger, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Ther' Anger] I understand that Bison is upset, and I am sorry for any distress I may have caused,
[Ther' Anger] but any anger he has undergone was needless
[Ther' Anger] and not my fault but the lack of information obtained by Bison
[Ther' Anger] which acquits me of any responsibility
[Ther' Anger] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Ther' Anger

[Haengemie] Ther' Anger this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] On Spring 170 of 534, Ther' Anger was found frivolous, having charged Daishi

   of Malicious intent towards the exiles of Puddleby..

[Haengemie] Jury, please note: 2 prior convictions in the past year.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Ther' Anger's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

Total recommended jail time: 360 min
Total recommended fine: 2800c
Total jurors: 6
Avg recommended jail/fine: 60 min/466c
[Haengemie] Because of outstanding fines still owed from previous convictions...
[Haengemie] I'm going add 209 minutes to the sentence.
[Haengemie] Ther' Anger, you are hereby sentenced to spend 269 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 466 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (463c) as additional jail-time of 59 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] In addition, Ther' Anger, I'm going to banish you from the city limits for 11 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.
