Re: Still "be able to" attend court?

Depends on how much experience with the courts they have. Regular visitors would tend to put in a "plea of mitigation" to the human judges where you suggest the sentence that your given as well in exchange for acting out a convincing sob story.

Frankly, I think that as a general rule making a plea of mitigation in anything but exceptional circumstances ought to attract punitive sentencing, but I know I'm in a minority.
