[Tyking II] And even if Bigfat cursed me, Zaroff should not get away with those vulgarities!
[Tyking II] And if I was annoying you so much, why did you not tell me to stop?

[Haengemie] Zaroff this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] Jury, please note: one prior conviction in the past year.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Zaroff's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.

  Total recommended jail time: 250 min
  Total recommended fine: 4160c
  Total jurors: 10
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 25 min/416c

[Haengemie] Because of outstanding fines still owed from previous convictions...

[Haengemie] Zaroff, you are hereby sentenced to spend 137 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 416 coins.
