[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Eva] Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I am sorry to take ur time with affairs that probably don't interest you
[Eva] but you have to understand that my feelings were hurt, my reputation of...my perfect greenÂȘ was hurted too
[Eva] what will my husband Wrath think if he doubts about my perfect greenÂȘ
[Eva] this is very tragic
[Eva] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Eva
[Haengemie] Selucreh, you have 90 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Selucreh] I was joking.
[Selucreh] If I have offended anyone with my joking comments, then I truly apologize.
[Selucreh] I did say that her green was ugly...
[Selucreh] ...I admit.
[Selucreh] But it was a joke, nonetheless.
[Selucreh] Done.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Selucreh
[Haengemie] Eva, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Eva] Selucreh...
[Eva] I thought he was my friend..
[Eva] I am so disappointed
[Eva] witness: Tyking
[Haengemie] Thank you, Eva
[Haengemie] Tyking II, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Tyking II. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinent facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Tyking II, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Tyking II] I was there! I saw it all!
[Tyking II] I was there! I saw it all!
[Tyking II] Selucreh blatantly hurt Eva's feelings
[Tyking II] Without any remorse!
[Tyking II] He should be punished!
[Tyking II] It is a terrible thing to insult a lady
[Tyking II] And Selucreh, maybe it was a joke.
[Tyking II] But it was still offensive!
[Tyking II] Members of the jury, I urge you
[Tyking II] Please punish him, so that he can no longer insult fellow exiles!
[Tyking II] As a psychiatrist, I can see that Selucreh has a real problem
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Tyking II] But too big for anyone to treat
[Tyking II] Selucreh has been terrible
[Tyking II] Please punish him!
[Haengemie] Thank you, Tyking II
[Haengemie] Selucreh, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Selucreh] As we can see, this ordeal has been blown up to it's fullest extent.
[Selucreh] It was truly a joke, and I am sure that you all can understand that.
[Selucreh] I apologize for your time being wasted on this minor situation.
[Selucreh] If Eva truly felt that I was a friend, she would have understood the joking manner in my voice.
[Selucreh] If anyone has a problem, then perhaps it would be her lack of self confidence.
[Selucreh] I hope that none of you leave here with hard feelings for any of us in this situation.
[Selucreh] Once again, I apologize.
[Selucreh] Done.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Selucreh

[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 2
  Votes guilty: 0
  Votes frivolous: 5
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Eva this court has found your case frivolous.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] Jury, please note: one prior conviction in the past year.
[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 Eva's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 7 min
  Total recommended fine: 305c
  Total jurors: 7
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 1 min/43c

[Haengemie] Eva, you are hereby sentenced to spend 1 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 43 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (34c) as additional jail-time of 6 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] Judge Haengemie bangs his gavel
[Haengemie] This court is adjourned.
