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>
[Althea] I am sorry Friends to pull you away from your hunting
[Althea] Lilit tonight summoned rotted corpses in the cavern
[Althea] in response to me being there
[Althea] with every ritual lilit performs
[Althea] her dark goddess grows in strength
[Althea] witness the recent spawns of greater deaths
[Althea] and darshak liches
[Althea] she attempted to pull me into the dark cave
[Althea] but I drew the symbol of Falinea
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Althea] and called upon her strength
[Althea] and lilit fell
[Althea] she is a danger to the town
[Althea] and to the exiles
[Althea] find her guilty
[Haengemie] Thank you, Althea
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 90 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] I summoned nothing to the sanctuary.
[Lilit] I warned Althea that her actions would cause my children to rise in anger.
[Lilit] I told her repeatedly that her actions would cause great harm.
[Lilit] She remained, and she was overwhelmed by the undine.
[Lilit] Did I cause this?
[Lilit] I tried to stop it!
[Lilit] She refused to listen.
[Lilit] Nothing she says here is proof of any action on my part.
[Lilit] I simply told her what would result from HER actions.
[Lilit] When I am alone in the sanctuary, this does NOT happen.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Lilit] When people come in, and make a mockery of the rites, this happens.
[Lilit] I don't cause it.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] Althea, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Althea] Lilit and her goddess have no claim to the cavern.
[Althea] we may find our catipult through that very cavern
[Althea] we did not agree that she could ban us form it
[Althea] when lilit says she didn't cause this
[Althea] she foregets that its her dark summonings
[Althea] that bring the monsters forth
[Althea] we never saw this kind of activity
[Althea] prior to her performing her rites
[Althea] she is bent
[Althea] on some meglomaniacal notion
[Althea] of turnign the undine into a force
[Althea] and has told me
[Althea] she will kill any who stand in her way
[Althea] at least in that respect
[Althea] she's true to her word
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Althea] tonight she killed again.
[Althea] find her guilty.
[Althea] max penalty.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Althea
[Althea] stop her before her goddess grows in power
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] Do storms have a "claim" upon the sea?
[Lilit] I do not make a claim.
[Lilit] I simply see the undeniable signs of a holy place.
[Lilit] And you would think, after sign and sign and sign...
[Lilit] ...this would be understood!
[Lilit] What more must happen?
[Lilit] My rites are to free the undine from the Darshak.
[Lilit] Why anyone would want to interfere in this is beyond me.
[Lilit] I warn when the storms of wrath come, but fools like Althea...
[Lilit] ...stand on the shores, and laugh, and deny what is coming.
[Lilit] And then she runs to court to cry when after the storm hits her!
[Lilit] She wants to blame me, because I knew what would happen.
[Lilit] I do not cause. I -see-.
[Lilit] If you encourage her in this...
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Lilit] ...she will persist in using the courts this way.
[Lilit] Let this nonsense stop, please.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 1
  Votes guilty: 6
  Votes frivolous: 3
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Lilit this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] On Autumn 336 of 537, Lilit was found guilty, being charged with being an evil servant of the undine.
[Haengemie] On Winter 13 of 538, Lilit was found guilty, being charged with Pushing Troy into the Undine Cave.
[Haengemie] Due to the 3 priors in the past year,
[Haengemie] the maximum sentence is raised to 180 minutes in jail or a fine of 1500c,
[Haengemie] or, possibly, a combination of jail and fine, depending on the jury's recommendations.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Lilit's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 421 min
  Total recommended fine: 6001c
  Total jurors: 10
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 42 min/600c

[Haengemie] Because of outstanding fines still owed from previous convictions...
[Haengemie] I'm going add 21 minutes to the sentence.
[Haengemie] Lilit, you are hereby sentenced to spend 63 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 600 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (580c) as additional jail-time of 74 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] Judge Haengemie bangs his gavel
[Haengemie] This court is adjourned.

Court adjourned at 9:55 on 21 Winter, 538
