Criminal trial amendment


  • Count

    For section 8.b of the charter, there is a rather humorous typo that needs fixing.

    This shouldn't require any discussion, but must still follow procedure for charter amendments.

    After each witness is done being questioned by the Prosecution, the Arbiter will ask the defense if they wish to Cross-Examine the witness.
    Defense presents their evidence, calls witnesses (who are sworn in upon taking the stand) and makes arguments for the Defendant's lack of guilt.
    After each witness is done being questioned by the Defense, the Arbiter will ask the defense if they wish to Cross- Examine the witness.

    The word "defense" in the last part should say "prosecution". As it stands, the defense gets to cross examine their own witnesses?

    So yea, this is the official discussion and we can vote in fix when it's eligible on the 7th.
