Lawsuit between Wulfric and Wiltshire

Wulfric was charged with commission of fraud.

The sentence has been passed
Statement of accusation
The defendant has been proved guilty of fraud.

Will the defendant rise!

For the charges of dealing iron in violation of the strategic goods law, I find you innocent.

I must discharge this case for lack of evidence. If complicity could be proved there would be a case here. Currently we do not know who bought the iron and whether or not the buyers were blacksmiths. If it could be shown that Wulfric had an accomplice, a non-blacksmith, with whom he conspired, I would find guilty. I have a reasonable doubt that this is the case.

The steel case will remain open for another two days in case additional evidence should turn up. It is not out of the ordinary for me to leave a case open in should I desire to do independent research or clarification, I have done it before.

This case is discharged. However, Wulfric is currently in Bridgewater and could be heading to Barnstaple. Since I consider him a flight risk and the 'arrest' button still does not work. I will use this screen to imprion Wulfric until the time of his other trials. The prison term from this case will count as 'time served' in the other matters before the court. Bail is denied. The defendant is to be accorded good treatment and full access to lawyers, books and other things necessary to preparing his defense.
The defendant has been sentenced to prison penalty 7 days.

Bill of indictment
This is the first of four charges to be set against Wulfric by the County of Wiltshire.

The defendant, Wulfric, Mayor of Salisbury, is hereby charged with violation of Wiltshire Law 006 - Fraud, Section 003 - Staregic goods. On Sunday, October the 22nd, Wulfric placed 18 ounces of Iron on the market for one pound each. At the same time he claimed responsibilty for his actions to the Wolves of Sherwood and selling the entire town inventory for one pound. This action would allow people who normally would not think of buying or having any reason to purchase and/or possess Iron to do so. In addition, he states that he is leaving, not to return. This action prevents the County from knowing who is in possession of the items. You may see the evidence of this action posted in Salisbury Hall here: http://www.acilion.com/englishforum/viewtopic.php?t=1476

First defence pleading
I shall break my defence down into clear sections:
1. Iron is routinely placed for sale on Town Hall all the time, not just by myself.
2. I did not purchase any of the iron myself and you have no evidence to the contrary.
3. I cannot control who purchases the iron from Town Hall, nor can anyone else. If crooked non-blacksmiths choose to by the iron and take advantage of the situation it is out of my control and you can't lay the blame on me for their greed.
4. I have violated NO section of this law as it is currently written.
You have no case here.

Prosecutor indictment
Your Honor,
I shall address each of Wulfric's defense statements herein:

1. Yes, Iron is routinely place for sale on the Town Hall, it is the Mayor's duty to do so for Blacksmiths who need it to ply their trade. No one else can sell Iron in towns, save someone who holds a grant containing it and they must sell it to the town hall.

2. Nothing was ever stated that Wulfric purchased the Iron for himself. This charge is for the reckless selling of Iron, not about if he purchased any.

3. By placing the Iron on the market, Wulfric has the ability to see who purchased the item in charge. As Mayor, he is duty bound to make sure that only blacksmiths or agents approved by Wiltshire county purchase the Iron. If someone other than a blacksmith or agent does purchase it, the mayor should report the crime (unless said mayor is illegally moving the Iron).

4. I feel that I have addressed his point #4 in my previous point by showing how he has violated this law.

Last defence pleading
Addressing the prosecutor's points:
1. How do you know I wasn't selling it for blacksmiths? You don't.
2. No need to address, he agrees with me.
3. Town Hall only lists the last 8 sales, none of which are blacksmiths getting iron. How do I recover these items or file charges when I don't even know who bought them? No mayor could do that. Add to this, I am overthrown so I don't even have access to the mayor's office.
4. No you really still have no case.
