The Trial and Sentence of Cortez Salvador Caído

25-11-2003, 07:12
A now despondent looking Cortez, a Hispanic man with wispy white hair and cybernetic implants across the right side of his face walked into a sparse courtroom. There was no audience, no ornate wooden decor, no way out except for through a dozen heavily armed men. Bulletproof glass and reinforced steel made up the small courtroom - no, bunker - and protected the judge and small group of officers.

Cortez was roughly sat down, despite his groaning in pain from his injuries. The judge peered down at him with a scornful hint to his otherwise totally impassive gaze. He cleared his throat and began.

"You, Cortez Salvador Caído, are here not for a hearing of your defense. You will not be appointed a defense lawyer, you will not have any say whatsoever. You are here to only observe the decision of your fate." The judge began.

"But-" Cortez interrupted.

"Shut up. You have no say whatsoever. Now, you have been charged with Attempted Genocide, Incitement to Rebellion, Extreme Use of Forced Labor, Incitement to Abuse of Selected Species, Extreme Oppression of The People, Possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Threat of Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Aggressive Takeover of The Government, Agressive Takeover of The Military, and twenty six counts of assassination or plotting of such. That's six atrocities and 29 counts of high crime. I sentence you to 29 life sentences, followed by six consecutive executions. You will be restored after each life sentence and each execution, so as to continue your punishment. Does the jury agree?" The judge said, reveling in Cortez's look of pure fear on his face.
