The 13th Fairy - Trial Report
Grimbleshanks is found 'Not Guilty' of the attempted murder of Princess Beauty.
Lawyers for both the prosecution and defence put forward strong arguments for their case, calling a multitude of witnesses and questioning them thoroughly.
All witnesses promised to tell the truth in front of the whole court.
The jury took their role very seriously and had a difficult time making their decision. The foreman took votes and returned their verdict of 'not guilty' to the shock of the court.
Grimbleshanks was delighted by the verdict and threw her hat in the air with joy.
Lawyers for the prosecution objected and informed the judge that they would be appealing against the jury's decision.
