Chamber of Justice Communique #035a
Let it be known that on this the 31st day of October, 2012 in a free and united Brotherhood, I the Justicar of the people set forth the declaration of the Chamber of Justice and its punishment on Coop Ter'an. Upon the conclusion of fair and just proceedings, a jury of your peers finds you:
On the charge of Violation of Probation -
You did knowingly and willfully break the terms of your probation by contacting Fremoc Pepoi multiple times after being instructed not to.
The jury finds you GUILTY
Sentencing for the party is as follows: -Demotion from Guardian to Apprentice -Letter of Reprimand -Six months probation
The terms of probation are thus: -The guilty party may not receive promotion, appointment to position, or any citation of honor or merit without the explicit permission of the Justicar. -The guilty party may not have any contact with the person who the death threat was originally intended as per original LoR, without the explicit permission of the Justicar.
Chamber of Justice Communique #035b DB vs Coop Ter'an - Justicar's Opinion
Soon after the proceedings of #034 DB vs Coop Ter-an, Coop sent a communication to Fremoc Pepoi with the intention of mediating conflict. Previous to this I had instructed Coop to refrain from any and all communication, as it was laid forth in his original Letter of Reprimand. Coop continued to argue that he would contact Fremoc with or without my permission, and proceeded to email him. At this point the Chamber convened to discuss the violation of the terms of Coop's probation, and determined that a breach had indeed occurred. Charges were filed on the count of Violation of Probation, and Coop selected a Trial by Jury.
Right Hand of Justice Arion was on a Leave of Absence, leaving me to choose DGM Halcyon as interim Hand. Both Hands built their cases and submitted the appropriate arguments and rebuttals in the required time period, allowing the jury selection process to begin. Six active equites and elders were randomly selected to conduct a fair trial over the supported evidence, and were given an unlimited time to deliberate. All six verdicts quickly returned a unanimous guilty vote, and sentencing followed.
Due to the utter lack of respect for leadership and the Chamber's decision, coupled with the severity of the original offense, I chose a four grade journeyman demotion as an appropriate reaction to Coop's actions. His responses to myself were belligerent and further confirmed his lack of responsibility for his actions. His Probation is hereby extended another 6 months, and a new Letter of Reprimand shall be issued.
Probation status is not a formality that can be broken on a whim. Coop's intentions were from the start to converse with Fremoc with or without my consent. While we must be understanding that he may have wanted to mend the bridge between them, he did so while at the same time threatening legal action against this club and those involved in this case, while continuing to respond to emails with malice.
Signed and sealed, Taigikori Aybara Justicar of the Brotherhood
