[Sombre] Like I said before your honor. Since I got fired I've been out on the street with no place to live.
[Sombre] We moved into Gaia's temple because it was warm and dry.
[Sombre] All we were doing was trying to spruce up the place and keep people from tracking mud in.
[Sombre] It's home to us now.
[Sombre] And I know that Gaia herself would not turn us away.

[Haengemie] Sombre, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Sombre] You honor, most of this evidence has to do with my thick friend over there, Poor impulse.
[Sombre] I took him into my squatting residence because he needed a home and a friend.
[Sombre] Should I be judged on his behavior?
[Sombre] Mr. Pudding himself gave evidence that I was trying to control his behavior
[Sombre] But he can be a handful.
[Sombre] We were decorating the place.
[Sombre] Who is Mr. Pudding to judge what the decor of Gaia's temple should be?
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Sombre] Well I'm getting off the subject a bit.
[Sombre] Jurors, be kind.
[Sombre] Done.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sombre
[Haengemie] <standard jury verdict briefing>
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's verdict.

  Votes innocent: 0

  Votes frivolous: 0
  Abstaining: 0

[Haengemie] Sombre this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] On Spring 105 of 539, Sombre was found guilty, being charged with defiling the sanctity of Gaia's temple.
[Haengemie] Jury, please note: 2 prior convictions in the past year.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Sombre's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.
[Bellafae] Bellafae hands Haengemie the jury's sentencing recommendation.

  Total recommended jail time: 240 min
  Total recommended fine: 5000c
  Total jurors: 7
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 34 min/714c

[Haengemie] Because of outstanding fines still owed from previous convictions...
[Haengemie] I'm going add 35 minutes to the sentence.
[Haengemie] Sombre, you are hereby sentenced to spend 69 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 714 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (707c) as additional jail-time of 90 minutes.
[Haengemie] Also, Clera will help you arrange a payment plan.
[Haengemie] In addition, Sombre, 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.

Court adjourned at 22:31 on 19 Spring, 539
