Erich Jaenke: :: Turns to see the officers enter ::
Kansas Kenickie: Court Officer> all raise for your honorable Judge Watson
BrenFaliver: ::startles o see Gila and Annika by him, having come in late and snuck to the back as well:: They have to have a sham trial first.

Callista Tyrel: Bolian in back> :: seated ::
Judge Watson: :: Heavily Eyeing ::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> I am production for the federation.. we are trying Commander Kansas Kenickie with 13 counts of murder.
Judge Watson: : no order in the court looking to slam down:
Cmdr JFarrington: :::glares aside at Bren, her glare telling him to be still:::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::neutral expression:::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> May I begin with my opening statement your Honor?
BrenFaliver: ::Doesn't see Farrington glaring as he and another spectator near-silently debate the merits of bringing back the gallows::
Annika Sorenson: (w)Hypospray hopefully.
Annika Sorenson: ::watches the trial::
Judge Watson: You may.
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> we are here to send this murder of 13 or more people to her rightful death.
Judge Watson: Go on.
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> she has taken lives with no remorse and we need to stop her now.... before she kills again.
Judge Watson: You have terrible report.
Callista Tyrel: :: Did not think the Death Penalty existed in the Federation...she'll have to read up on New Las Vegas Government. ::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> I beg your forgiveness ma’am
Annika Sorenson: :::didn't think so either::
Annika Sorenson: ::rubs chin::
Judge Watson: May the prosecutor bring exhibit A, or do i have to do your job for you
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> I am going to begin with Ms Kenickie...
Erich Jaenke: :: Listens ::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> ::Brings up photos of Kansas in different disguises... this woman goes from planet to planet and kills whoever she pleases.
BrenFaliver: ::tnip:: That last one is Dame Edna....
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> We have flight logs that show her going to these planets and then photos of her dressed up..... then shockingly a person is dead all in the same manner.
Judge Watson: sext
BrenFaliver: ::blink::
Erich Jaenke: :: Thinks of the flight logs ::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> Ms Kenickie is known for cutting throats.... these people have all been killed with the weapon a knife.
Judge Watson: ::judge notes eyes meeting each other, fever in the room:
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> I call Ms Kenickie to the stand
Judge Watson: You may take the stand.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Looks at Erich:: here we go.
BrenFaliver: ::whispers to Annika and Callista:: since when does Kansas fall into predictable patterns? Only one weapon? Tsh.
Callista Tyrel: :: wonders if the guy who brought Kansas to trial is in the courtroom ::
Kansas Kenickie: ::Stands up still in chains and walks to the chair next to the judge::
Kansas Kenickie: ::Sits::
Judge Watson: defense you may ask your questions.
Annika Sorenson: ::Nods in agreement to Bren::
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> Kansas... ::walks up to the bench:: we have you on tape.... your flight logs.. just tell everyone the truth.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::not impressed with their methods:::
Kansas Kenickie: I was on vacation... I can't help that crazy people are in the universe
Callista Tyrel: :: Bren has a point....ponders if this evidence is real ::
Kansas Kenickie: Plus those pics look nothing like me ::all of them are her::
Judge Watson: Order in court.
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> your are calling everyone in court stupid?
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> holds up pics of dead people.... you killed all of these people.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Squints:: I don’t know them.
Erich Jaenke: Objection, we are here to prove she killed those people, not to presume beforehand.
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> ::Looks at Bren:::: you may prove your case.. I know you can Not!
Cmdr JFarrington: :::wonders why Erich does not interrupt because the opposition is badgering the witness... in fact he is not even asking questions, he's pointing fingers.... mental note to report that the SF Command:::
Judge Watson: mam do you have sight issues we should have been aware of previously.
Judge Watson: this will not stand order in the court
Kansas Kenickie: I can see just fine, I know none of those people.. before, during or after their lives.
Judge Watson: how can you verify your alibi
Callista Tyrel: ( is this guy using a screen presentation....or charts? )
Erich Jaenke: Objection. The prosecution is not asking questions of the accused. This is clear badgering.
Cmdr JFarrington: ::a strange question for the judge to ask:::
Kansas Kenickie: I was with my partner, Captain McFly for 6 of those dates
Callista Tyrel: :: notes slit throats in images....lots of blood ::
Judge Watson: The photos which have the throats slit have families.
Judge Watson: Were you a harlot?
Kansas Kenickie: no ma,am, I am innocent
Erich Jaenke: Objection, the families of the victims are not relevant to presumed innocence.
Callista Tyrel: Bolian in back> :: crosses his arms while listening ::
Judge Watson: Mr Jaenke...
Erich Jaenke: Objection your honor. You are badgering the witness with the term harlot.
Kansas Kenickie: Nellen> please... tell your lies
Judge Watson: if you can repeat yourself
Judge Watson: " The families of victims are not relevant.."
Judge Watson: Then sleep at night
Kansas Kenickie: ::Looks at Erich:::
Erich Jaenke: Correct, unless there is a family of the victims that saw their loved ones killed in front of them their mere existence is not the purview of this proceeding.
Annika Sorenson: ::Doesn't really care for where this trial is heading::
Callista Tyrel: :: is worried..this judge is not what she expected..::
Judge Watson: Please Mr Jaenke.
Kansas Kenickie: :::works on her cuffs...:::
Cmdr JFarrington: ::would like to see this judge and prosecutor's credentials:::
Judge Watson: did you ever lose a loved one?
Cmdr JFarrington: :::blink::
Erich Jaenke: Again, not relevant. Fact is, your honor, the witnesses prosecution should be bringing in are ones that saw the murders happen, saw her exit or enter the flights from the logs, can verify they saw the alleged murderer.
Judge Watson: Bring on the prosecution.
Judge Watson: ORDER
Erich Jaenke: Objection your honor.
Judge Watson: to what thee object?
Erich Jaenke: I rule this outburst be stricken from the record and the prosecution reminded to stick to the facts.
Kansas Kenickie: I get order like everyone else..mine are just out of your class.
Callista Tyrel: :: looks to Gila...wondering if this in more inline with a trial from Cardassia..::
Judge Watson: Thinks to herself ::Keep your dog in a cage next time Jaenke::
Gila Orrak: :: whispers :: This sure feels like the sentencing phase, cause they sure think that B is guilty.
Erich Jaenke: To the judge: She is not my dog and I do not keep her in a cage.
Judge Watson: ( a lot of stake, been paid off)
Judge Watson: Recess. Please collect yourself.  We will be due back in an hour’s time.
Erich Jaenke: Objection your honor, your impartiality is suspect due to your heightened emotional state.
Judge Watson: HAH
Judge Watson: I find you in contempt.
Callista Tyrel: :: notes Erich getting fined hopefully will not spend the night in the jail ::
Erich Jaenke: What, did not like a Betazoid on defense?
Kansas Kenickie: Court officer> All rise!
Callista Tyrel: :: stands ::
Erich Jaenke: :: Doing that shuffling paper thing into his briefcase. Hey, were did that come from? ::
Erich Jaenke: :: already standing ::
Gila Orrak: :: Looks around and stands ::
Judge Watson: ::slams gavel::
Callista Tyrel: :: awaits Judge to ..go to his chamber ::
Kansas Kenickie: ::watches the urge leave the courtroom:::
Erich Jaenke: :: Did read the contempt part of his Defense Attorney for Engineers, 34th Edition ::
Kansas Kenickie: ::Leans forward, points at Erich:: you suck.
Erich Jaenke: :: points :: You drug yourself into this. Dug a hole without a shovel.
Kansas Kenickie: I am going to put you in that hole buddy.
Erich Jaenke: Not if I snap your mind in two first.
Callista Tyrel: :: with the gavel " bonked " Callista exits into the lobby ::
Erich Jaenke: :: Proceeds to exit the courtroom ::
Cmdr JFarrington: :::moves toward Erich and whispers:: they have no evidence whatsoever. This judge is definitely not Starfleet Command.
Kansas Kenickie: ::stands up and lunges at Erich::: son of a B*tch.
Gila Orrak: Well, I sure need to read up on legal proceedings.
Kansas Kenickie: ::Court officer> ::Grabs KK::: settle down there.
Erich Jaenke: I'd give you a headache, but you undoubtedly already have one.
Erich Jaenke: See you in an hour, Commander.
Judge Watson: I care about you all.
Kansas Kenickie: So I don’t have a say in my own case!!
Callista Tyrel: :: in lobby getting a drink from the nearby fountain and notes the New Las Vegas Courtroom interior ::
BrenFaliver: ::wonders how bad it could possibly be to phaser this judge and prosecutor. Terribly ironic, though::
Erich Jaenke: :: Exits the back of the court as they take Kansas back ::
Erich Jaenke: :: Meets up with the rest of the group :: Well, I am no attorney, that's for certain.
Kansas Kenickie: :::Pulled along out of court:: Jerk ::to Erich;;
Cmdr JFarrington: (w) I can take second chair.
Erich Jaenke: :: Projects some word into KK's mind ::
Kansas Kenickie: You little scum bag !!
Callista Tyrel: :: does a Picard Maneuver and walks over to Erich Jaenke :: Uhm...I think this particular trial's outcome has been predetermined. This is a local jurisdiction trial by the looks of it.
Annika Sorenson: ::orders a bag of chips from a vending machine::
Erich Jaenke: :: Looks to Farrington :: Yes. It does not help to have the defendant's hatred of her defense and the court already making up its mind.
Annika Sorenson: It does not look good.
BrenFaliver: ::Stares at the Bolian in the back, curious::
Gila Orrak: Inspiring to see a Cardassian court system on a Federation world.
Annika Sorenson: ::opens the bag of chips::
Cmdr JFarrington: (w to Erich) And we need to get her away from everyone so we can talk.
Cmdr JFarrington: :::closes in on KK::: Don't say another word.
Callista Tyrel: Bolian> :: departs courtroom for recess ::
Kansas Kenickie: ::Shuts up:::
Cmdr JFarrington: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\=
Cmdr JFarrington: =/\==/\=PAUSE SIM=/\==/\=

Cmdr JFarrington: It's all yours, Boss.
Kansas Kenickie: Good work everyone.. there were some freezes.
BrenFaliver: Look, people were icy, but 'freezes' seems a little--oh, the tech! nm
Kansas Kenickie: I will work on a log for this week, feel free to explore the court house
Cmdr JFarrington: I'll be doing a log as well.
BrenFaliver: Let's find the judge's chambers!
Cmdr JFarrington: Nothing like insane prosecutors.
Callista Tyrel: New Las Vegas Courthouse...> :: lots of pictures of previous Bubba Judges ::
Kansas Kenickie: For what Erich, a booty call?
Callista Tyrel: :: watches the Untouchables ::
Erich Jaenke: :: puts down his padd :: What? :: to the padd :: Call you back babe.
Cmdr JFarrington: Move on from here, Commander, or move forward?
Cmdr JFarrington: As in TBS?
Kansas Kenickie: next day
Cmdr JFarrington: Next day, morning... gotcha.
Kansas Kenickie: bright eyed and play like I am innocent.
Callista Tyrel: okay goodnight!
Kansas Kenickie: Good work everyone, thank my guest... if you didn’t scare her she will be here next week.
