"Robert Rotten, you've been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of kidnapping." Judge Steiner started. "Do you understand what this means?"
"Yes, sir." The villain answered as he rose from his seat.
"A jury of your peers found you guilty on all three counts which carries a maximum of fifteen years along with a ten thousand dollar fine for the assault charges and ten years for the kidnapping charge." Steiner informed Robbie. The villain gulped and nodded.
"At this time I ask the victims to set forward and address the defendant before I deliver my decision." Stephanie slowly stood up from her seat and Sportacus followed. The sixteen year old walked through the gate that stood between the courtroom floor and the gallery section and faced Robbie. Her eyes were as cold as steel.
"Robbie, I know that you abhor Sportacus and what he stands for. Despite your best efforts in the past he has thwarted every attempt that you have set forward. This time was no different except I got in the way. I know that you didn't mean to hit me with that pipe; that was an accident. However, erasing my memory and kidnapping me in an attempt to get rid of Sportacus was not. In time my arm will heal and I will have put this behind me. It is my hope that you learn from your time in prison and that it changes you for the better." Stephanie told him. Robbie saw her brown eyes soften a little and then Sportacus stepped forward.
"I have only one thing to say to you Robbie. I am a firm believer that people can change and when you get out of jail, it is my hope that we can become friends." The above average hero smiled slightly and then led Stephanie back to her seat.
"Robert Rotten, in light of Stephanie and Sportacus' address and from the prosecutor's request, I sentence you to three years in the FunTown Correctional Facility. When you are released you will spend the next five years working at the LazyTown Mission for the homeless. Court is adjourned." Judge Steiner took his gavel and brought it down onto the top of the desk. The bailiff escorted Robbie from the room while the gallery cleared out. Sportacus took hold of Stephanie's hand and the two walked from the courtroom. Now all that was left to do was talk to the Mayor.
