    The case against Lady Amandine has finally come to a head after her being in jail for two months. Dupre's charges against her are not in dispute, although the legal, moral and political implications are a matter of hot debate. This knights trial will be judged by a simple majority, NOT by unanimous vote.

    Trial Members:

    Judge: EM Tiberies

    Prosecutor #1: PLAYER
    Prosecutor #2: PLAYER
    Defender #1: PLAYER
    Defender #2: PLAYER
    Juror #1: PLAYER
    Juror #2: PLAYER
    Juror #3: PLAYER
    Juror #4: PLAYER
    Juror #5: PLAYER
    Juror #6: PLAYER
    Juror #7: PLAYER

    Lord Dupre will discuss the charges against the defendant before she is brought in.
    The Judge will address Lady Amandine.
    Prosecutor #1 will have 10 min to bring his/her case against the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Prosecutor #2 will have 10 min to bring his/her case against the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Defender #1 will then have 10 min to bring forth his/her defense for the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Defender #2 will then have 10 min to bring forth his/her defense for the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.

    Once the case has been fully defended/prosecuted, each of the Jurors will have the opportunity to ask 3 questions each. These questions can be directed at Lady Amandine, the Judge, the Prosecutors, or to the Defense.

    The Judge will then have a small period of Q&A.

    Lady Amandine will speak.

    The Judge will ask each of the jurors the following Questions/Charges:

    #1: Did Lady Amandine commit unlawful murder, or was it a just killing under the protection of Martial Law?
    #2: Were the actions of Lady Amandine immoral, and unbecoming of an officer of the Knights of the Crux Ansata?
    #3: Have the actions of Lady Amandine damaged her standing within the Crux Ansata and in Britannia as a whole?
    #4: Is Lady Amandine still fit to lead the Knights of the Crux Ansata?

    Upon a not guilty verdict, the defendant will be dismissed and free to go.

    Upon a guilty verdict on one (or more) of the four charges/questions the each of the jurors will be given the option of one of these four punishments.

    #1: Death, public execution, entire Amandine estate given to Reddish's two brothers.
    #2: Retirement, permanent retirement and removal from the Knights of the Crux Ansata, and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.
    #3: Censure, public condemnation of her actions by the Crux Ansata and possible demotion, and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.
    #4: Reprimand, public apology and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.
