Due to the heinous nature of the crimes committed by the mother of Hansel and Gretel, bail will be set at 40,000.
Once upon a time, during a time of famine, the mother of Hansel and Gretel had forced their father to abandon them in the woods. For weeks, the father and mother believed the two children were dead.
One day, Hansel and Gretel returned from the woods, taking with them the police. They went too arrest the mother, but she pretended to faint in surprise, thinking they wouldn't try to arrest her.
Unsurprisingly, the police did not fall for the trick, and she was taken into custody. Soon after, she was taken into court for her bail hearing.
The mother stayed in custody for a week or two, unable to pay the bail. Eventually, she was taken to court for arraignment, so that she might hear her indictment. She had also chosen to represent herself in court.
You are charged with criminal neglect and reckless disregard. This is a class 6 felony, and carries a maximum sentence of 5 years. How do you plea?
The trial proceeds in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court over the next few months. A verbal testimony is heard from the father, who received a plea deal in exchange. Two written testimonies from Hansel and Gretel are read.
As the trial finally winds down, it is time for the judge's verdict. The trial has been very one sided, and it is clear to everyone present that the mother is very guilty.
This court finds you guilty as charged. You are hereby sentenced to the maximum punishment of 5 years in a federal prison.
