Trial of Captain Sharizar Stormfrost Commenced on Yavin IV

January 27, 2013

A local Yavin IV Correspondent filed their report with GNN on the trial of Sharizar Stormfrost.

“As anticipated the now infamous pirate, Captain Sarizar Stormfrost’s trial on Yavin IV begun. The Captain and her crew were caught stealing artifacts from the KOJ archive’s. The Captain and one of her crew were apprehended though the crew member has since escaped from custody. The Captain is also wanted in conjunction with a museum theft that left one employee dead on Velmor. Since her arrest the Captain has confessed to her guilt and to several analysts and those in attendance were surprised that the KOJ went ahead with a full trial to prove her guilt, but better overkill than denying rights.

Captain Stormfrost agreed to have Jedi Atlantis represent her though a man by the name of Daelan Renoh took over the job, why the trial itself was overseen by a panel of three judges including strangely a Bakuran Princess Arcelia Kristan-Seda, and  Medraut. Master Jedi Iria Tuqiri acted as the prosecutor in the case laying out the facts.

Trial of Captain Stormfrost.

Master Tuqiri started out by telling how the incident occurred, with a ship landing near the archives, armed figures exiting, their looting of the archives, and finally their admittance that they were in fact the ones involved in the Velmor robbery. In the following shootout, Captain Stormfrost was taken into custody. Several pieces of evidence were introduced including video footage of the raid and incriminating statements that the Captain made. Curiously the prosecution only asked that the items stolen, which included a crystal and a small dagger,  be returned and monetary compensation be paid to cover the costs of the damage and the care for Captain Stormfrost.

Before the prosecution could provide more evidence, Judge Medraut lashed out at them for not informing the Republic of their prisoner and holding them in a substandard jail rather than in a tax paid Republic facility. He also seemed to be upset that Velmorean authorities were allowed to interview the prisoner. He and Arcelia then began questioning the archivist Zen about what exactly was stolen and what their worths were. To add even more oddness to the proceedings, Arcelia’s brother Prince Caesar interrupted the proceedings to give his sister a kiss and then demanded she return with him back to Bakura. When his demands were stopped by the Jedi, he became belligerent calling the trial invalid. Finally from threats that she would be disowned by the Monarchy, Arcelia gave up her seat.

After that interruption, the Bakurans left and the trial proceeded, curiously with the direct examination of the Jedi who was to act as Stormfrost’s lawyer, Atlantis. Her story matched that of Master Tuqiri. The defense continued with their questions even bringing forth Ayeka Kel who has been in close contact with Velmor and speaking on their behalf  to the stand to try to show bias against her client about being sent back to that system.

Finally the trial came to an end with both sides giving closings. The Jedi gave a short one with most of the evidence backing her while the defense mainly tried to downplay Stormfrost’s involvement without denying it with the main purpose it seems to weaken the case that will occur on Velmor.

In the end the Judge found her guilty and ordered her to return the items or pay their monetary value. This led to a discussion about the value of the artifacts and the apparent breakdown of the defendant due to mostly getting off for her crimes.

    Not to nitpick the article, but just wanted to say I’m definitely not a woman >.<

      Sorry, it was hard to understand the local correspondent that filed the raw report, a correction has been made. ((This article was written from logs and neither Daana nor I were at the actual trial. The logs were very unclear and someone misspoke calling you a her. Sorry about the confusion, I corrected it.))

    According to the museum CCTV footage, which I have reviewed at length, the case for murder must be commuted to self-defense. The museum worked attacked with a weapon first and the pirate reacted to this accordingly.

      You, sir, are a bloody idiot. If they hadn’t committed the damned crime to begin with, the wouldn’t have gotten it in her head to be heroic… now, stop defending criminals, lest you look like one yourself. Go grow yourself a conscience and a heart.

        A robbery (attempted or otherwise) does not give license for employees of the establishment being robbed to set about armed assaults. The fact remains that the girl attacked first and the pirate acted in a fashion most people would do when faced with an armed conflict: by defending oneself.

        Secondly I am not defending anybody, I am simply remaining objective and ensuring that the correct justice is meted out, rather than justice as the result of rampant emotions such as your own. The charge of armed robbery is valid, the charge of murder, however, is not.

        Furthermore, if the museum worker had succeeded in killing the pirate in her assault, by the laws of Velmor she would be on trial for murder at this juncture.

    Kasmiel, if you truely viewed the footage at length, you would know murder would have never occured if these criminals had not committed the crime in the first place. Holding up people by guns is a crime, shooting a womans head clean off isnt self defence. That is called murder.

    Regardless, you rob and kill someone during the crime, its still murder. A criminal cannot say they defend themselves as they care not for self preservation of others, only their selves. Which is why that person had a gun and the museum worker, only a knife.

    The 120 lb worker could have been easily disabled without such lethal action.
    You do the crime, you pay the time.

    Always a pleasure seeing citizens try to point out facts that are inaccurate.

    Join us on Velmor this SAT for the Velmor Trial of this criminal. And no ladies and gentlemen, Velmor wont be having volunteers or children play the role of a judicator or tribunal overseer. Velmor does not believe in subjecting a child to such an event unlike other worlds that look away at using unqualified people to volunteer as a judicator. Child labor laws on Velmor Prevent this from happening.

      The arguments of “this would not have happened if that would not have happened” do not make a charge valid. Unfortunate, yes, but not valid.

    Firstly I’m not a child. I really do wish people would begin to get that through their think skulls. Secondly the article misspelled my name I would like it fixed please. You claim child labor laws when you know nothing of my age or my background do you? why don’t you get off the holonet and come find me and converse with me before disrespecting me and the people of Yavin.

      Sorry for the typo.

    This is the last time I appear on GNN. The convolutions about my affiliations and my actions are nothing short of misleading and annoying.

    • February 1, 2013 at 2:40 AM

      What is wrong exactly?

      ((Understand we couldn’t attend at the event because the time it was plaid and it was written from raw logs. This is generally making it harder to understand who is talking about who, who was where, if a chat is part of the main event or is a background chitchat, etc. Hence, it needs more efforts to write an article which might be less accurate at the end. This was made however for people’s enjoyment. We can fix when a there is a mistake such as misspelling, wrong attribution or anything misleading without intend to do so.))

      Sorry about saying you were from Velmor, if that’s what you are upset about. Ill change it a bit, just got a bit confused, because last we talked you were on Velmor, was very outspoken about this Velmorean crime, talked about Velmorean justice, have placed out bounties on behalf of Velmor, and several people referred you to as being from Velmor in the recordings of the trial. I’ll correct it, though at the moment its a bit unclear what your exact title is, I was thinking ambassador to Velmor, but since I’m not sure, I’ll just refer to why the defense questioned you.

    ”Is one singular robbery all it takes now to be declared infamous? Curious as to what that makes others. Immortals, mayhaps?”
