Clera, reporting.

[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Mefin] I said throw instead of throwing for a reason
[Mefin] typo
[Mefin] well
[Mefin] he threw a rock at the poor kittie
[Mefin] and someone has to defend the cat
[Mefin] he should be locked away for a little bit
[Mefin] for his crimes
[Mefin] I have a sketch
[Mefin] Mefin shows it
[Mefin] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Mefin
[Haengemie] Maz, you have 90 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Maz] I don't have much comments, I never heard fo that Mefin guy, but he seems to have a lot of imagination
[Maz] in any case, that cat is too loud anyway. So I guess he must receive his share of stones
[Maz] but the last stone I thru was aimed at Outcast
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Maz] Maybe Mefin has other motives, look at his reputation
[Maz] Done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Maz
[Haengemie] Mefin, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Mefin] Lier he has thrown a rock at Shadowpuss !
[Mefin] I will prove this later when I make a scroll with the picture I have
[Mefin] hes a cruel heartless person
[Mefin] he locked away my ic brother in jail!
[Mefin] and forgot about him
[Mefin] he should pay for his actions
[Mefin] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Mefin
[Haengemie] Maz, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Maz] Thats a bunch of snert, he and his "brother"
[Maz] maybe he could find a way to lose his time by anoyign someone else.
[Maz] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Maz
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 1
  Votes guilty: 0
  Votes frivolous: 7
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Mefin 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 Mefin's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 320 min
  Total recommended fine: 4700c
  Total jurors: 8
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 40 min/587c

[Haengemie] Mefin, you are hereby sentenced to spend 40 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 587 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (585c) as additional jail-time of 75 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 16:51 on 3 Winter, 539
