Default Level 10 Courtrooms

Primarily used by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, the courtrooms on level 10 vary size capacity as well as the severity of the trials held within them.

In courtroom one, trials regarding blood status, minor misdemeanors, or smaller gatherings of Wizengamot members, in particular those who serve on some of the various subcommittees, tend to find themselves in here. With seating for approximately 20, it is one of the courtrooms with a (dare we say it?) homey vibes.

Moving up in the numbers, courtroom seven is one of the more sleekly designed. There is a fully equipped press box up in the back and the high dais, which usually seats the chief Warlock, the Minister of Magic, the Senior Undersecretary and the Head of Magical Law Enforcement as required, is very shiny and modern.

At the end of the long corridor is courtroom 10.The largest of the Ministry of Magic courtrooms, it is big enough to seat the entire Wizengamot. It is very grand with high ceilings and stadium-type seating. There is a lot of history in this room; some of the greatest trials of Wizarding History have happened in here. When the room isn't full, it echoes quite a bit. Some of the Wizengamot seats here have comfortable cushions, but there are less cushions than there are seats, so sometimes there is a bit of a rush to get one, especially if the trial is to be a long one.

Default Juror number 5 reporting for duty...
Swedishfish Girl! Madame Librarian! Jess's Soul Sister! Sweetest Swede!

Leo was dressed sharply in a dark navy suit and tie for the trail as he headed in to take a seat in his assigned jury box, labeled number 5 in courtroom 10. The middle aged man in his 50’s with curly dark hair had gone through the security checkpoint and wand weighing without problem, but it had put him a bit on edge. Leo was already nervous enough for being a member of a jury on a very high profile case, and this security stuff hadn’t eased his emotions. If only he could have talked this over with Cassie he thought for the thousandth time, but she was cut off from him still. At least she was safe at Hogwarts along with their children as far as he knew.

Taking a bite out of a pastry and a sip of coffee from his mug Leo looked around the room at the grand ceiling and stadium seating as he waited for the trial to commence. Maybe it couldn’t hurt to give the information booklet another once over?

Default Juror Number 1!
Baguette | there is no D in my name | TRAITORclaw | Queenie of Narnia

Rula hadn't yet been selected for jury duty until now, so when she had received her summons, she'd done a little bit of reading on it. She knew the basics of it and its purpose, of course, but she wanted to get a feel for what the experience might actually be like. And it had been an interesting read!

Still, she was a bit nervous even after that. This was a pretty serious duty, especially with the case that they had been debriefed on, and she didn't want to do something wrong.

Having already had a small breakfast with Max and Ash before she'd left home, she passed on the pastries and coffee and took only the information booklet with her to her seat in the jury box. She offered a small smile to her fellow juror, then opened the booklet, hoping that reading over it would help calm the nervousness in her stomach.

Default Juror #7
A Poop * k8 *

Ziggy Song was reporting for duty in a brand new professional pink number! Was she harrowingly worried about Aboli at Hogwarts?? ABSOLUTELY. Was she going to show it???? eVEN IF IT WAS ALL SHE COULD THINK ABOUT???? aBSOLUTELY NOT. So it was with a broad smile that the magical psychiatrist arrived at the appointed place at the appointed time, all checked in and whatnot.

"OoooOooh! Is that coffee? Oh lovely!" she said to herself, but loud enough for anyone to hear, and grabbed a cup as she smiled sweetly at the other two jurors already there. "Isn't THIS exciting?" she told the other two. Ziggy was not one to be afraid of talking to strangers OR small talk in general. In fact, it was a strong suite. She WAS used to listening to people for her living! And sometimes that required making them feel comfortable with a little bit of small talk.

The baby was with her mother while her father worked; Tony was working today, too. Everyone was accounted for. You know, except for her two spawn trapped at Hogwarts.

Again, WE AREN'T THINKING ABOUT IT TOO HARD.

Default Juror no. threeeee ^_^
~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Maybe it was just him but Adi thought that his screening had been rigorous. All those questions about the statement he had given… well, he still stood by what he said and was super pleased that he’d been elected still. Hey, he was a decent, reputable guy. Ask anyone who came into contact with him from Hogwarts or from the Hereford Hippogriffs Gobstones team orrr the reserve which he co-owned with his husband. It didn’t matter. He was here now, on time even after getting his wand weighed and collecting his clearance badge.

Armed with his booklet, coffee and pastry {because he could never say no to food}, Adi found his way to the Courtroom and to the other jurors that had already arrived. “Hey, everyone!’’ he greeted enthusiastically, forever bouncing with excitement and happiness. Also, was that Mr. Kitridge? Adi couldn’t help but wonder as he took his seat.

Default Juror #2 since we're sharing!
Dalliesa | Ab-Bot | Hogwarts Trojan War |

Eureka was nervously excited to be a part of this big trial. Granted, she didn't enjoy the idea of being solely responsible for someone else's fate, this was the kind of power that she only knew of another person who'd enjoy-- and that other person was not, of course, her. Still, she was a self-acclaimed activist, so she enjoyed standing up for what was right and being a part of the juror committee was huge today.

Entering the courtroom with a manual tucked close to her chest, Eureka approached the small group with a small but serious smile. "Morning all." Was it morning? It was daylight. Again, she was a little too nervous. She took a seat at the table, tucked a strand of her blond hair behind her ear, and took a sweep around the room with her eyes trying to see if she would recognize anyone. Maybe they were purposefully chosen strangers? Probably, yeah.

This was all very exciting, wasn't it? In a very serious way, of course, but still. Exciting nonetheless. The two weren't mutually exclusive! ... Just possibly phrased differently by the more discerning individual.

Effie had brought her jury summons letter with her just in case. She knew her juror number - six - and was not likely to forget it - six, aka six (but in French this time), aka kuus, which wasn't a million miles away from Kruus, which was her name, yes hi hello - but it wouldn't hurt to keep her letter on her. She had it tucked into the back of her information booklet right now, which she kept spontaneously flicking through for a quick reread before realising she was still terrible at walking and reading, and had not suddenly overcome this during the previous few moments.

Once Effie was situated in the jury box, she had a chance to have another look, except that the moment she opened it, she was distracted by the other jurors. Her fault, not theirs. Partly theirs. "Good morning, everyone," Effie greeted those already here, smiling at those offering greetings of their own. Her teacher voice, usually reserved for the Stemp House dears, might have definitely possibly slipped through without a doubt.

On the one hand, Lyssa had been minorly convinced that she would have been considered too young to handle such a big case as it appeared the jury summons was related to. On the other, she had known she’d given the best answer possible when it came to her statement, and as a bonus, she had discussed it with her professors and they had agreed to give her credits for being part of this. Therefore, it had taken her some time to decide what to wear, seeing as she knew she had to give the Wizengamot a good impression of her if she wanted to eventually be hired, not to mention she was representing her professors back at WU Edinburgh. She had to take this seriously.

Although there might have been some wondering as to if her cousin Bryony had been involved in this case as well. She’d found herself scouring the information booklet as she’d made her way to the jury box after getting her wand weighed, getting debriefed and passing through security, juggling it along with the small notebook she’d brought with her for notes as well as a cup of coffee. It may have been her flexibility from the silks, but she’d managed to arrive at her assigned spot unscathed, finally glancing up once she was settled into her seat and giving her fellow jurors a smile. “Good morning all,” she greeted them brightly. Yes, she definitely appeared to be the youngest one here.

Fletcher was here, seated in the benches assigned to the Wizengamot, wearing the plum robes and weird hat. He hated this outfit. Loathed it. But he'd also never done anything this prestigious and important before, so he would tolerate the outfit because he wanted this trial to go as smoothly as possible. He was even feeling a little giddy, like a kid, as he watched the jurors file in. Even though he'd been on both sides of the law now, he was really enjoying this side of things. The judgy side of things. It was great.

Fletcher did his best to maintain a nuetral, tight-lipped expression though, containing himself as he counted all seven jurors. Right. Time to start, then? He looked to Charles to follow his lead.

With heightened security needs and the latest big trial just starting, Simon was more than aware of where his attention was to lie. He’d made sure his security team was well prepared and ready to the best of their abilities so he could simply oversee at times unless a more hands-on approach by him was needed. Both the joy and downfall of being in charge of a team…he didn’t have to do it all himself and he shouldn’t feel it was his responsibility to do it all himself.

As the jurors and Wizengamot gathered, the security head found himself down in the Level 10 courtrooms regardless, nothing requiring his attention on any of the other maze of levels and departments at this time. Though not to be overbearing of his employees, Simon simply greeted those of the security division already there and stood unobtrusively out of the way. His ever-watchful eyes built on decades in the MLE keeping watch.

Well, here it was. Her first major trial as the Magical Law Enforcement department head. It had her full of mixed emotions. Excitement, nerves, but also a lot of pressure. Even though she and the rest of the leaders had little control over the jury, it was a serious trial to sit in on. And she wanted the courtrooms of the Ministry of Magic to have as good of a reputation as they could.

Evangeline entered the courtroom exactly thirty seconds before the trial was set to begin. And yes, the court outfits were extremely hideous. She felt much more powerful in a fitted, tailored pantsuit and not blended in, but... it was what it was.

Now, they just waited for the Minister and the man of the hour - Jack Roller.

Charles Hollingberry was exhausted. Despite his best efforts to look less so in front of his employees and the wizarding public it was still very apparent that he was graying at a faster rate and that his eyes were sinking in a bit more. The latest report from Mysteries regarding the Hogwarts situation was the only vague silver lining in the whole mess that was this year and the man yearned for the day that he could hold his grandchildren in his arms again.

Today, however, he needed to brush these personal sentiments aside and focus on the trial of the decade. Going over all the reports from Law Enforcement regarding Roller was...staggering, the man's trespassing dating back to the World Cup at least and everything falling into place. Something that had his palm wrapped around his bearded chin, fingers and thumb massaging his cheek bones as he finally made his way into courtroom 10 and ascended his place among the Wizengamot and beside his Senior Undersecretary. His hand rested wearily atop the man's shoulder and a father squeeze was given as his faded blue eyes turned to meet Evangeline's before shifting his gaze respectfully to the jury and offering a polite inclination of the head in acknowledgement.

"This court is now in session," Charles announced, his chest lifting as he straightened his posture and took on almost a regal appearance in his black billowing robes for the Wizengamot. "Good day. Calling the case of the Wizarding People of the United Kingdom versus Jack Roller. With the jury please stand and raise your right hands?" He paused to allow for this to occur. "Do each of you swear that you will fairly try the case before this court, and that you will return a true verdict according to the evidence and the instructions of the court? Please confirm with an I do and may you be reminded that in doing so you are signing a magical contract with this Ministry and its Wizengamot." He waited for each juror to do so before inhaling again sharply. "Will security please escort Mr. Roller into this courtroom."

*randomly tagged* Norbert(a)

Conley had slipped into courtroom as Charles had begun talking. Using his wand, Conley summoned a cushion from a row or two below him and made himself comfortable in the back row, taking a seat near the door. He didn’t want to draw attention. He was here for a few reasons, one of which was that Roller had stolen the watch Conley had received from his father as a graduation present from Hogwarts. Conley had thought he’d lost it at the Quidditch World Cup, but apparently he’d been relieved of the item by the nimble fingered thief. Another was what he had done to his fellow department head. Despite his personal feelings about Cambridge, nobody deserved to go through what the woman had endured.

There was also the fact that Roller was not a British citizen and well, he’d been handling request from MACUSA for the British Ministry to hand over the malefactor for months; they wanted him extradited because he was an American and had committed enough crimes in America for them to prosecute. He was tired and a bit frustrated at being caught in the middle of things between Charles and the American Ambassador Helen Pen, he wasn't going to lie, but that was what came with the job.


And speaking of Charles, he didn't look so hot. Conley wondered if the man was getting enough sleep.

Well wasn’t this just lovely!? Jack was thinking as he was dragged into the courtroom by a couple of, well, he imagined they were Aurors. It wasn’t like they wore a uniform or anything like that. He glanced right. Then left. Then turned his head owlishly to try and look behind him. His poofy afro-like hair was deflated in spots which became more obvious as he looked around. It was just his luck to have gotten caught for something he didn’t do. Sure, sure. He had been the one holding that mirror in Diagon Alley, but he hadn’t been the one to put the lady in it! He didn’t even know where the mirror had come from! It had just shown up in his pocket.

In fact, there was a lot of things he couldn’t really remember doing that this particular Law Enforcement peoples were telling him he was being tried for. In fact…”Hey!” he called out in a heavy Jersey accent. ”Aren’t I entitled to a Laywer!?”

ZIGGY thought her fellow jurors looked like normal people. Than again, what constituted normal? Ziggy was raving mad when she wanted to be, and she looked normal. As she assessed their body language, collectively and individually, she merely sipped her coffee. "Morning, morning!" she told each one as more piled in. Two men and four women thus far on this jury that Ziggy could see. What an interesting mix. "We have an interesting case ahead of us, don't we," she added to the group as whole before a few of the Wizengamot slipped in, and then Minister Hollingberry followed shortly behind.

ORDER IN THE COURT apparently! Ziggy quickly had a seat, pursing her lips and keeping a straight face as she listened to him say they needed to swear an oath - well okay - Ziggy did the thing, her right hand raised. "I do." It was like getting married, wasn't it? Also an oath. Ziggy took her oaths very seriously, even if she lived life as a leisurely stroll. Thinking of her marriage with Tony only made her think of their child together, Liam, and then her thoughts strayed to Aboli and Koko - AGAIN WHO WERE STUCK AT HOGWARTS - but quickly cleared her mind, something she could easily do due to her career.

She was here to serve, not to think about her own sufferings. Right.

The man they were hear to try was led in, and Ziggy felt her heart give a little tug. He seemed... well, a bit ill prepared for this sort of thing. A lawyer? Shouldn't that have been figured out before now?

~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Adi was wondering if he’d bump into more familiar faces and so, he kept a good eye on all the happenings around him. The fellow jurors {Eureka, Effie, Lyssa, Ziggy} got nods in response to their greetings. Yes, he was still the very social soul he had always been. The man eyed the Ministry officials and thought that a fair amount of them looked tense; not that he blamed them. At the appearance of Mr. Hollingberry, Adi knew that it wouldn’t be too long before the proceedings got underway.

When instructed, he climbed to his feet, raising his right hand in the process. He replied with the required ‘I do’, his voice mixing with that of the other jurors. The man of the hour arrived shortly after. His request for a lawyer had Adi lifting an eyebrow. Shouldn’t he have been more knowledgeable about how these situations went?



His husband had been under some amount of stress over this whole Roller situation. What with MACUSA and everything. Sachin didn’t know all of the details but he knew enough to know that Conley would be glad to see the back of this entire situation. This helped in his decision to make an appearance at the session today; to be a supportive husband, having made sure to clear up pressing matters - like that entire phoenix theft/smuggling fiasco in India and Britain. He slipped into the Courtroom, quickly looked around and located Conley. “Hiding out, Con?’’ the Ambassador whispered, referring to the fact that Conley had chosen to sit at the back and close to the door. And wasn't that Eureka? Yes, it was. His friend was a juror.

Whewwww, the room just got even more serious and stuffier when the minister walked in. Eureka didn't think it was even possible to be more nervous than she was right now. She folded her hands over her manual and listened attentively when the minister spoke, standing up at cue, and raising her right hand. "I do." She didn't know if they were supposed to feel the magical bind to their words, but she did.

Then the defendant was escorted in, looking shaggy and nasty. She didn't appreciate this. Her eyebrows furrowed slightly at his bellowing, but yes, he was definitely entitled to one...

... right?

Her head turned towards the Wizengamot, then towards the audience recognizing Sachin which instinctively calmed her nerves.

If this were any other occasion, Rula would have been happily greeting and talking with everyone else here. Especially her cousin Eureka! But given these circumstances, it seemed best to remain relatively quiet, so she stuck with simply offering smiles to everyone who arrived.

Then, apparently it was time to begin.

Rula stood along with her fellow jurors. She raised her right hand and, when the Minister had finished, said, "I do," and said it as sincerely and firmly as possible. It was all part of protocol, but she wanted to truly mean it. This was so important. It shouldn't be taken lightly, nor should anyone simply go through the motions of it without really thinking it through.

It became even more real when the man was led in. Rula watched him carefully, trying to gauge emotional state. He seemed confused more than anything else with the way he was looking around. That was...interesting.

And his question about a lawyer? Even more interesting. He did have one, didn't he??

Alphonise had arrived to the courtroom shortly before the jurors did and she took her place at the end of the Wizengamot seating for her role as Court Scribe. She was rather pleased for this opportunity to be witness to such an important trial, though she kept her expression impassive. And she would put her receptionist skills to use as she took notes and recorded testimony.

Her eyes fell briefly on each of the jurors took their seats, then she turned her attention to the Minister as he addressed the court and she began her transcribing. Alphonsine lifted her eyes again as the defendant was brought in, an almost imperceptible quirk at the corner of her lips as he demanded a lawyer, and she watched him carefully. This would prove to be very interesting indeed.

No, the man was certainly not getting enough sleep. His longest stretches of the coveted necessity were between meetings and breaks every 50 pages of paperwork. The Minister took a moment to meet each juror's gaze as they agreed to their oaths and then found himself holding his breath as Jack Roller was brought out...only to groan on his next inhale at the accused's next words.

"Mr. Roller, you waived your right to further representation," the Minister reminded him while withholding his sigh. "Let the record reflect that Mr. Roller waived his right to further representation under British Wizarding Law." His gaze shifted briefly over to dear sweet Alphonsine and he felt his insides calm a bit more, his lips almost even twisting into a smile of sorts. Her presence had been so soothing since her appointment on level one and he appreciated their tea breaks that always seemed to come when his mind was the most awake and frantic. She knew just the things to say to put him at ease. Her presence and overall aura reminded him very much of January, particularly in the last year.

"Mr. Roller. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. The defendant has been charged with multiple counts of theft during the Quidditch World Cup, one count of illegal tempering of a bludger during the Quidditch World Cup final match, multiple counts of illegal gambling, multiple counts of selling stolen goods, multiple counts of identity theft from the Department of International Magical Cooperation including passports and visas, multiple counts of distributing personal identifying information for unlawful purpose with Azkaban escapees still at large, the kidnapping of Alexa Cambridge, and for the orchestration of the mass breakout at Azkaban Prison which resulted in the serious injury of many of this governments citizens and the death of Clementine Harper." He paused to take a breath as he recalled the elderly witch who had run the now destroyed butterbeer cart on the South Side of the Alley. "...the death YATI Bradley Spooner, several missing persons, and amassing over 25,000 galleons worth of damages and stolen earnings from the establishments and residents of Diagon Alley." Charles paused yet again to take a breath and then shifted his piercing yet foggy blue eyes over to Roller again. "How do you plead?"

Idly patting Charles's hand, Fletcher was just so used to the gesture now that he had to really study the Minister's face to understand how exhausted he was. He wanted to say something encouraging, but it was high time they get this over with before Roller did anything worse. He'd already impacted so many people in this courtroom, it had been nearly impossible to put together a jury.

Anddd the swearing was done, Charles moved right along into describing the charges... and Fletcher's sharp, bearded jaw imperceptibly clenched at the mention of over 25,000 galleons worth of damages and stolen earnings. Yeah, no kidding. He had questions for Roller regarding this. Namely, why'd he do it? Had he seen the injuries to the Ollivander's bloke's face? It hadn't been pretty, thanks to Roller's escapees. Not to mention, did he KNOW the ripple effect that losing one deposit could have on a person's business? Because Fletcher knew this all firsthand.

He exhaled deeply to remind himself that it wasn't his turn yet. Roller still needed to enter a plea. Yada yada, there wasn't even a chance that he WASN'T guilty, c'mon.

Leo ate up the last of his pastry as more juror took their seats in the boxes around him. Mostly women by the looks of it but also a few men like himself and was that Adi from his teaching days? Leo didn't have more time to ponder before Minister Hollingberry showed up and the trial commenced. He took a nervous breath as he raised his right hand to pledge the vow. "I do." Leo answered firmly with a look over into the eyes of the minister. Why did he just feel like a rabbit led into a trap when he with his vow signed a magical contract with the ministry and wizengamot? If only Cassie was there to see him now.

Repressing the urge to sigh Leo sat up straighter as the accused; Mr Roller was brought in and the charges against him was counted off. Stealing goods was one thing, but kidnapping and killing innocent people and breaking out prisoners from Azkaban was another. Leo really wanted to hear Roller's reasons for committing these awful crimes.

Waived his right to a lawyer? His face contorted into a look of obvious confusion. Nobody would ever call Jack a smart man, but he wasn’t stupid enough to waive his right to a lawyer. Any thief worth their slight of hand knew better than to waive his right to a lawyer! ”I did not!” he blurted.

His jaw worked back and forth much like a cow chewing cud as he listened to the old wind bag who apparently was in charge of this three-ring circus read the terms against him. He’d run up quite the list of crimes in this country. It would almost make his USA crimes look like child’s work.

Wait wait – wait a New York minute! He did WHAT?! ”I didn’t break no one out of any Azkaban! And I didn’t kidnap nobod- KILL?! Jack was many things. A thief? A liar? A cheat? A swindler? Sure – he’d proudly admit to all of those crimes. But those other things? Nope. Nadda. Nilch. Not his work. Quite frankly, the man didn’t have the bludgers to do much more than rig an international quidditch match. Yup that was as ballsy as he got. So go ahead; add giant yellow-bellied chicken to the list of things he'd admit that he was.

Eureka was paying close attention to the minister as he listed the crimes that Jack was being trialed for, and it was a long list. She noticed they increased in tensity the further the minister went... were they listed chronologically? Or was it just how things were done in trials? If chronologically, they made sense. People who committed a small felony were more prone to graduate to a higher class crime like murder. Her eyes moved to the person who was supposed to be responsible for those crimes. He looked like a criminal if she was to judge by looks (which she shouldn't) but he also had a flustered aura about him. She couldn't tell why...

He didn't seem to agree with... three of the crimes? The breakout, kidnapping and the murder, did that mean he committed the rest?

HMM.

He certainly seemed to not have waived his right to a lawyer, either. Even if he was confused or a slow human being, the Wizengamot should've made sure he was being guided according to his capabilies. Eureka's eyes scanned the Wizengamot people... what did they have to say for themselves?

Adi’s face remained free from any expression as the happenings unfolded before him. Had Roller forgotten he had waived his right? Or was he only now changing his mind? Though, as a juror, Adi had been briefed before, he still found it tremendously awestrucking as he listened to Hollingberry read out all those charges. Poor Alexa, the girl he so fondly used to refer to as ‘Candy girl’ during their Hogwarts years No, well, she was a woman now and a very fierce one if he did say so himself.

Dark, brown eyes fixed back on Roller, the Hippogriff breeder studied his reaction to the charges. The only thing that gave away his feelings was the inch that his right eyebrow crept up for a split second before it fell back into place. Was Roller really THAT good of an actor? Was Adi imagining it or did the criminal really did seem surprised about the charges, or some of them, at least?

Adi wondered what his fellow jurors were thinking as he continued to study the man in the spotlight.
