Joe laughed at her face, which made Peri angry and slap Joe on the face. The two then started to fight. Joe grabbed Peri and attempted to shove her off the rail, but somehow, Peri managed to turn Joe around and he accidentally fell off the rail, causing him to be stabbed to death by the scythe carried by the Ripper Jade statue.

While Peri was indicted for involuntary manslaughter, she was also indicted for lying to the police all investigation along, which resulting a 10-year jail sentence for Peri.

Since Bryan could not stand people who committed academic dishonesty (cheating on exams) to avoid studying, he grabbed a paper knife and slew Tyler. Jones was appalled because academic dishonesty was not punishable by death, and in court, the Judge did not like how Bryan reprimanded Tyler for academic dishonesty, so Bryan was sentenced to life imprisonment.

    • Who: Mikhail Levin

    • Note: Character escaped jail by tricking the prison guards when he dressed up as a cheerleader. Jones and the player finds out about this and lock Mikhail to jail again.
  • As she pinned me to the wall, something dark came over me... I grabbed a pair of scissors from one of the children's desks... and I stabbed her!
    • Who: Jenny Honeycomb
    • Source: "An Elementary Murder" [Case 40]
    • Note: Character was from a social circle which forbade people from revealing any LGBT relationship in any form or fashion. In court, Jenny admitted that she was in a closeted LGBT relationship with Irina. Irina wanted to make their relationship public but Jenny was scared of the repercussions this would have on her. On the day of Irina's death, Jenny asked Irina to come over in her classroom during recess, she had brought a gun hidden in a teddy bear with her to threaten Irina so that she can end the discreet LGBT relationship since she believed Irina betrayed her feelings for Jenny in front of her children and thought by threatening her, Irina would leave Grimsborough. Jenny was not planning to shoot at her but near enough so that she would be scared, but the gun was broken. Irina, thinking Jenny really wanted to kill her, then jumped at her; Jenny tried to fend her off with her inhaler but it only made Irina fight harder. As Irina pinned Jenny to a wall, Jenny grabbed a pair of child's scissors from one of the desks and stabbed the victim to death. Despite Jenny was plead guilty at the police and the Court, she was sentenced to life imprisonment.
  • Believe me, Your Honor: you don't want to know.
    • Who: Tess Goodwin
    • Source: "The Rorschach Reaper" [Case 41]
    • Note: Character had intentionally killed Madison to buy time in preparation to hypnotize Inspector Jones and manipulate him to kill the player, as she claimed that Jones could not live in the shadow of the player forever. Just as Jones pointed his gun at the player while hypnotized, Ramirez suddenly came in and hit Jones with a frying pan, breaking Tess's spell, allowing the player to detain Tess and ship her to court. During court, Tess was forced to answer for the murders of Rani Goshwalla, Lisa Edwards and Aaliyah Banks before Judge Hall, but Tess countered that other than slaying Madison, she did not kill Rani, Lisa, and Aaliyah with her own hands, but rather gave Rani's sister, Lisa's best friend and an activist a "little push" through hypnosis and the Rorschach Inkblot Test, as she claimed that those three girls had weak minds. Tess continued by telling Judge Hall that a murderer was sleeping within helpless souls, which doubled as her psychology and use the Rorschach Inkblot Test as a vehicle to "bring the assassin" within three other people (including Jones), but her senior project was ruined by Ramirez's intervention, who even warned the player to be careful when approaching Jones. Tess also said the Rorschach tests were used to select those killers, as she believes that anyone can be a killer under the right circumstances, as all she needed was to have those people look at the Inkblot Test to ensure she could control them like puppets, but refused to disclose what she saw on the Inkblot Tests. For directly slaying Madison Springer, the attempted murder of the player, and the second degree murders of Rani, Lisa, and Aaliyah, Tess was sentenced by Judge Hall to life in jail with no parole, thus ending the killing spree that terrorized the Grimsborough University.
  • After all, it is Machiavelli who said: "It is better to be feared, than loved". And thanks to this murder, my family name remains intact and we will be as respected as ever.
    • Who: Mitchell Westville
    • Source: "Blood and Glory" [Case 42]
    • Note: Character killed Jerry because Jerry got him drunk one night, thus making him reveal that his family was broke, while Jerry recorded him saying that. Mitchell did not want his family name to get spoiled as the people in Maple Heights would have regarded him with disdain if they had known the truth, and he said that murder was a lesser crime in this district. Mitchell wanted to administer Jerry the truth serum because he wanted access to Jerry's safe in the Livingstone Club, but failed as Jerry would tell the truth behind the Westvilles anyway. To preserve the Westville name, Mitchell opted to kill Jerry by rigging a cake with razor blades. Jones then revealed his true self to allow the player to make the arrest. In court, Mitchell told Judge Hall that the families of Maple Heights existed for centuries, and had been the most respected people of Grimsborough, but Judge Hall countered that all Mitchell did was add murder to the Westville name. In spite of Mitchell's words, the court deduced that a murder, no matter the details of and the motives behind the occurrence, was a punishable offense even though the slaying was justified which were grounds for a lifetime jail sentence for Mitchell.
  • And I'm sure Daddy would have at least approved of me not running away from the consequences.
    • Who: Isabella Fairchild
    • Source: "Troubled Waters" [Case 43]
    • Note: Character will not argue or deny that she slew Andrew. Isabella kept on bumping into Andrew at charities and he made fun of and flirted with Isabella every chance he saw her. Isabella gave in to Andrew after he made enough sexual advances on her, that she could not resist, in turn both Andrew and Isabella started their relationship. Both Andrew and Isabella were regulars at Jezabela's Dungeon, but then outside of the club, Andrew wanted to control Isabella's life in every aspect (such as what she was permitted to eat); she dumped him, but he still would not let go. She decided to see him one last time and that same night, she stole some mead away from Archibald Ashworth's radar, and reported back to the yacht. Isabella lured him into jumping into the water as part of their "game", but then she turned on the engines of the boat and drove over him. In court, Isabella admitted to the crime but also ranted that her father said people should not rely on others to fix their problems, which was the driving force behind her killing Andrew. While the Judge sentenced Isabella to 12 years in jail (parole eligibility in 6 years), the Judge was saddened that she had to sentence a young woman of such good upbringing due to Isabella resorting to heinous actions to make her voice heard.
  • Well... Yes and no... I called him and told him Hank was drunk... But if you do have to lock him up, do you think we could be cell buddies? Georgi does brighten my days...
    • Who: Peggy Buxton
    • Source: "The Scent of Death" [Case 44]
    • Note: Character thought that David Jones and the player would arrest Kerry Ann Buxton due to her sedative overdose (which in turn makes the patient clinically insane) but the evidence the team found during the investigation prevented her lawyers from dropping the case in court. Peggy told the court that she and Hank hated each other but she hated Kerry Ann even more. Therefore, Peggy would bestow her fortune to Hank at the condition of disinheriting Kerry Ann as well as letting Peggy stay in Buxton Mansion until her death. Peggy eventually discovered that Hank was planning to confine her in an institute for senile people, and because of that, she sought to make Hank to pay for every time he had disrespected her and mocked her in front of her beast of a late husband. Peggy crept up behind him on the rooftop, smashed a pot over his head and choked him to death with a pair of pantyhose. After Hank perished, Peggy planted Hank in a corpse flower pot and even planted one in Hank's mouth. Peggy lured Georgi Papacoulis into helping her carry Hank's dead body by making him believe that the victim was drunk, a feat which made Jones think Georgi was an accomplice to murder. Peggy's motive for the murder, not to mention her early failure to take a stand due to having lawyers attempting to drop the case, were grounds for her being issued a lifetime jail sentence.
  • Now, please take me to jail, where I hope I can redeem myself!
    • Who: Tom Norris
    • Source: "A Shot of Beauty" [Case 45]
    • Note: Character found out that Kerry Ann posed naked for Dwayne Vermont in some luxury cab depot while he was resting at the Halifax Hotel. Tom managed to review the pics after he found Vermont's flash drive upon his arrival, and found the pictures to be disgusting, immoral, and loathsome, and was in disbelief and shock that Kerry Ann would cross that line, as he knew Kerry Ann was capable of many shady antics. Since Kerry Ann would never listen to Tom, he wanted to show her that she cannot be forever young and pretty with all the collagen in the world. As Tom arrived at the Buxton Mansion, he saw Kerry Ann being more delusional than ever, bragging about how sexy she was and how the mayor's campaign strategy was motivated thanks to her. Tom was very annoyed about Kerry Ann's latest efforts, and as a result, he swatted her with collagen syringe after collagen syringe in emotional pain whilst Kerry Ann tried to defend herself by almost scalping Tom. After Tom ran out of collagen, he kicked Kerry Ann into the pool and watched her die. In court, Tom declared himself guilty but not without telling the court that Kerry Ann was dead long before that as the citizens of Maple Heights (including but not limited to Hank Buxton and the Mayor) killed her with their games of appearance. Tom also stated that Kerry Ann's purpose of posing nude was to boost her stagnating career. Tom thus was sentenced to 20 years in jail.

    • Who: Harold Knight
    • Source: "Drive, Swing, Die" [Case 46]
    • Note: Character wanted to be #1 but Tony was always winning. Tony was about to be exposed for his womanizing ways but still it was not enough for Harold as Tony would still have come back later to steal the trophy from him again, but David Jones countered that golf was just a sport and not a game of life or death. Harold believed the only way to be #1 was to invite Tony for a little game at the golf course via Tony's cart. Upon arrival, Harold struck Tony with Tony's golf club and bound his legs and arms to finally bury him at the 5th hole. Tony screamed all throughout the night until Harold came back in the morning to put the final nail in the coffin: he played the 5th hole, thus choking Tony with his golf ball. Judge Hall told Harold that he killed someone in cold blood just for the love of a golf tournament, but Harold believed that golf was the fuel he needed to live life. For the murder of Tony Webb, Harold was sentenced to 25 years in jail, with a chance for parole in 15 years.
  • Why did Walter care if my sister gave me a bit of money anyway? It's not as if HE needed it!
    • Who: Esteban Vallez
    • Source: "One Wedding and a Funeral" [Case 47]
    • Note: Character profited from Lola's diva fame to keep himself afloat, but when she met Walter, he sort of opened her eyes regarding her brother and asked her to stop giving him money, which she did. Esteban was furious that Lola discontinued funding him with Walter in the picture, and therefore decided to kill him. In court, Esteban claimed that Walter treated people like a joke and only cared what people could bring him as if Walter always wanted something larger than the last, assuming that Walter would be bored with Lola in a short amount of period of time resulting in a premature divorce (like Walter did to Molly Mocard), but Judge Hall countered that money was the real motive for the murder. Esteban was found guilty of premeditating a plane crash that killed Walter and was sentenced to 20 years in jail, and Lola even told Esteban after his indictment that he ruined her life by just killing Walter and for preventing her from marrying one of Maple Heights's affluent personalities.
  • I... Yes, Your Honor.
    • Who: Sabrina Kingston
    • Source: "Good Girls Don't Die" [Case 48]
    • Note: Character testified that she believed she was on drugs because Veronica Johnson sold them to her, though Grace countered that the "drugs" Veronica sold were actually a mixture of caffeine and talc. Sabrina needed Abigail's help to give her a urine sample as all top colleges (including Harvard and the University of Grimsborough) enforced applicant drug tests and Sabrina was afraid of having her test come up positive albeit Abigail refused to help and for this reason, Sabrina got mad. During a beauty appointment of Abigail's, Sabrina crept into the treatment room to intimidate her by pointing a hair removal laser on her and thought that if she threatened to kill Abigail, she would give her a urine sample for her to pass the university's drugs checking mechanism. But accidently, the hair removal laser fired a laser beam at Abigail's chest by itself thus burning a hole through Abigail's chest, which contributed to the murder being linked to a crumpled friendship due to excessive differences. In the court, Sabrina pleaded guilty of first-degree murder and claimed to have lost herself, but Judge Hall countered that there was nothing worth killing a friendship over. Sabrina was sentenced to 20 years in jail with a chance for parole in 10 years, and although she was not told that she would be tried as an adult, the sentence Sabrina had to serve made it obvious that she was tried as an adult.
  • I wouldn't expect you to understand just yet, Your Highness. But, I did it in the name of the greater good. In time, you'll see.
    • Who: Hilda Tipton
    • Source: "All the King's Horses" [Case 49]
    • Note: Character did not like the fact that the King did not trust her with his son apart from picking his toys. She wanted to do more for him, like being the King's personal consultant. Given that Khalid never listened to Hilda and claiming that Mohammad trusted her, Hilda planned to get rid of Khalid in the Grimsborough Horse Riding League so that she could counsel Mohammad. Hilda had strong beliefs that Khalid spent most of the time in those stables and knew about Grimsborough's security holes, and managed to exploit those security holes by pretending that she was delivering her daily report on his son, but in reality she lit the firecracker to break the beehive, allowing the bees to anger a horse which was taken as a gift from King Khalid to the Mayor, and causing the horse to smash Khalid's skull with its hard foot. During the hearing at Grimsborough Court, Hilda felt that her killing Khalid was a glorious day for Sultanistan because Mohammad would be a king much better than Khalid, but Judge Hall countered that Mohammad now had to bear an excessive burden of power whilst being parentless. Mohammad told the court that Hilda lied to him all along, in which the judge told Hilda that she pretended to care for him but was found that she wanted to seize more power and overthrow the Sultanistan Imperial Rule. Due to the crimes being political and international in nature, Judge Hall opted to fill in her report of Hilda's arrest in Grimsborough and ordered International Authorities to detain Hilda where she would face trial at the International Judicial level.
  • IT WAS MY TIME! I earned my place, I earned my place in my spotlight! I worked too hard to be distinguished by someone's untalented wife!
    • Who: Annabel Stewart
    • Source: "Snakes on the Stage" [Case 50]
    • Note: Character thought that Roland gave Beatrice Vane (his wife) the lead role for "Madama Serpent" in an act of nepotism, as although Annabel thought she had the role but when Roland moved to Grimsborough and became director of "Madama Serpent", he fired Gerald Riverton and gave the role to Beatrice instead in spite of Annabel working so hard day and night. Annabel thought the only solution to Roland's suspected nepotism was to kill him and have a new director for "Madama Serpent". The only way Annabel would kill Roland undetected was to put sleeping pills in his tea, break the cage of the giant boa, and trap both Roland and the giant boa in the dressing room, lock the door from the outside, and flow out of the crime scene, but at the cost of losing her key and one of her jewels. Jones countered that Annabel should have talked to Roland instead of killing him, but Annabel had no patience in Roland, which explained why she made the fatal decision. In court, Annabel felt that her career had to end because of her killing Roland, but Judge Hall countered that killing an innocent man to build such opera career was not the solution to stop such nepotism, as Annabel snapped that Beatrice was not talented at all. Annabel was sentenced to 20 years in jail, with parole eligibility in 17 years for the murder of Roland Vane. Jones felt that Annabel's ambition and impatience drove her to murder Roland, and realized that the force was bound to run into people like Annabel in the line of duty.
  • You just don't get it, do you? NOBODY is safe from the Crimson Order! The only way I can protect my family is by not talking!
    • Who: Susan Huckabee
    • Source: "A Brave New World" [Case 52]
    • Note: Character was trying to protect her family, but Stuart was recently obsessed with proving about the fact that a secret society called the Crimson Order killed Pip back in 1642 as aforementioned. According to Susan, it was a secret which was meant to stay in the Huckabee family and not to get spoiled. Susan begged Stuart to stop his researches, but he did not listen, and Susan started seeing Crimson Order members everywhere she went, which she obviously considered a warning from them. The Crimson Order was threatening Susan to keep the secret or die, and since she was a mother, she could not risk putting her whole family in danger, so she decided to kill Stuart before it was too late. She slashed Stuart’s throat open and pulled his tongue out because she wanted to send a message to the Crimson Order promising them that they would not talk any more. In court, Susan was being sentenced for slaying her brother horrifically, but the Judge requested Susan to tell them everything she knew about the Crimson Order. Susan refused to out any information before the authorities as it would get her family in danger, and in spite of the police promising to keep the Huckabees safe, Susan said that no one in Grimsborough was safe from the Crimson Order and the only way she could protect the Huckabees was by not talking. Susan's horrific murder of Stuart and her refusal to cooperate with the Grimsborough authorities in outing any information leading to incriminating the Crimson Order's extensive list of crimes were grounds for a lifetime jail sentence.
  • But now both the great Keme and I have been avenged!
    • Who: Shanaya Peota
    • Source: "Burying the Hatchet" [Case 53]
    • Note: Character was the trailer park president. Sandy was a social worker, and she had to make changes in the Aloki Settlement. But Shanaya hated her, because after Shanaya and her husband, Delsin Peota, got divorced, Sandy had an affair with him, and Sandy also sent Shanaya's kids to foster care. Shanaya did not want to submit to Grimsborough's law, and told the team that what she did was right during her moment of arrest. She knew what she had to do, so when Sandy arrived for an appointment with the juvenile offender Keanu Ashokan, she jumped at Sandy and tied her to the pole which could be found in the Aloki Settlement. Shanaya then hacked off Sandy's hands with an Indian hatchet she stole from Grim Gas, Ron Riggs's gas station. At court, Shanaya was proud of committing the murder because of Sandy's crimes. Shanaya said that she was a happy Aloki wife until Sandy started working in the Aloki Settlement. When Sandy arrived, she made Shanaya the laughing stock of the Aloki community. Shanaya continued by stating that Sandy's affair with Delsin was not the first time that this happened to the Aloki (as aforementioned with Anakee's cooperation) since Solomon stole Inaya from Keme back in 1643. Although Shanaya avenged Keme by killing Sandy, the Judge countered that past wrongs could not be made right with new crimes. Shanaya was sentenced to life imprisonment for the pitiless murder of Sandy Grimmes.
  • Wait! <Rank> <Name>, I have a message for you from the Crimson Order: "Your days are numbered."
    • Who: Ashton Cooper
    • Source: "The Poisoned Truth" [Case 54]
    • Note: Character was the descendant of William Cooper. Rosie was about to expose the Crimson Order as insidious manipulators and the secret society did not want that to happen. They gave Ashton the order to kill Rosie so he could join them. For Ashton, the Crimson Order was proud of the city his family founded, as well as him, so he used "Killer Cards" and his purple lens monocles to follow the execution order, and to do what the Crimson Order wanted, Ashton hand-made a poisonous blowdart (using natural poisons from rare plants) so that he can discreetly kill Rosie in spite of Jones and the player catching wind. At court, without any remorse, Ashton once again claimed that he committed the murder for the eternal glory of Grimsborough, and determinedly said to Judge Hall that putting him inside prison would change nothing as he could still act as a Crimson brother, which were grounds for Ashton to receive a lifetime jail sentence for the murder of Rosie Gatewood. As Ashton was taken away, he wanted to notify the player that "their days are numbered" on behalf of the Crimson Order, but Jones furiously countered that the Crimson Order did not scare his partner at all and that it was them who should be afraid instead.
  • And yet I stand here with a strong heart and a clear mind, for I know I did the right thing for our community!
    • Who: Luna Hecate
    • Source: "Ashes to Ashes" [Case 55]
    • Note: Character found out that Tess spent hours in the detention center's library trying to study how her ancestor died and could not afford to let Tess get away with it. Luna mailed a pendulum to Tess's detention cell so Tess could hypnotize the guards and escape. Luna's plan went well as she was able to corner Tess in the Nautical Museum (which looked like a pilgrim ship in the past). Luna tied Tess the same way Mary was tied up and then killed Tess the same way Mary was murdered in 1649. Luna admitted that she was a member of the Crimson Order, but she refused to out the name of the leader as her family had been Crimson Order members for generations, alas the Hecates were very good in keeping secrets. In court, Luna stated that she did the city a favor but the Judge countered that Tess's guilt did not warrant a murder, which were grounds for a 25-year jail sentence for Luna.

    • Source: "There Will Be Blood" [Case 56]
    • Note: Character found out that Adam discovered the Crimson Order's gold mine and the order's existence alas Serena could not afford Adam to get away with it. Adam made it clear to the Crimson Order that he would not out the Crimson Order's illicit gold mine if the Crimson Order paid him, but in response to Adam's blackmail, Serena issued a "pressing" execution order for Samuel to perform the hit. Serena was arrested for Adam's execution causing Howard to complain at the team for his mother's arrest, but countered that obstructing the law was not an option.

  • You're referring to those stupid Aloki Indians? Pah, who cares about them?!
    • Who: Milton Grimmes
    • Source: "There Will Be Blood" [Case 56]
    • Note: Character, who had been waiting for the team, dressed in his Crimson Order robe and helmet, expressed his belief that the city belonged to the Grimmes family, admitting that he killed Delsin and then drank his blood. Milton dropped a bomb when he revealed that his ancestor, Solomon Grimmes, had done the same to Inaya after discovering that the Aloki tribe had an abundance of gold through a gold mine, thinking that the gold would be enough to control Grimsborough with an iron fist. So, Solomon devised a plan to gather the Aloki in one roof by seducing Inaya and invoking a Pilgrim-Aloki feast, where he later had the Crimson Order do the dirty work. After the Aloki massacre, Solomon seized the gold mine for the Crimson Order's financial benefit. This statement by Milton disgusted Jones because the four-century-old gold mine was the Order's motive. Milton then continued that with the gold mine as the Order's headquarters, he could declare himself a dictator and a God, and prepared himself to kill the player with his handgun. Fortunately, Ramirez intervened in the nick of time by hitting Milton with his frying pan—mirroring the saving move he demonstrated in The Rorschach Reaper. The team did not hesitate to handcuff Milton, who responded in disgust that he was supposed to bring the player's head to the night's great ceremony in the Crimson Order's headquarters. And so Jones and the player disguised themselves as Crimson Order members to arrest Alden Greene and Mayor Howard Johnson at the Crimson Order hideout. With Milton, Alden, Howard, and Serena detained, the trial of the century was about to ensue. Judge Hall started by profiling the Grimmes family as Crimson Order leaders and mass murderers, but Milton blasted her for labeling the Crimson Order as criminals instead of heroes. Next, Judge Hall held Serena liable for the second-degree murder of Adam Bentley, to which Serena responded that she would be known as Grimsborough's greatest matriarch. Furthermore, Judge Hall made Rachel Priest's murder a Crimson Order murder, but Alden countered that the Order could have made Grimsborough rich because of the gold they seized from the Aloki. Last but not least, Judge Hall informed Howard that he abused his power as the Mayor of Grimsborough, acting on his mother's orders, although Howard did not understand what the judge said at all. The mess the Crimson Order made through four centuries of bloodshed were grounds for a lifetime jail sentence in solitary confinement, even though Judge Hall felt it was too light of a sentence in her opinion. Milton replied harshly that the Crimson Order built Grimsborough, but Judge Hall stated that the city was built through acts of murder and told Milton not to talk anymore. Judge Hall admitted that the mass sentencing of the Crimson Order has finally put an end to the dark era, and a bright future now awaits Grimsborough, thus marking the end of the notoriously secret society.

Arrests in Pacific BayEdit

  • Well, I threw Ice P's fingers into the sea and then dragged him too... Ice P started to struggle a little, but I plunged his head under the waves and swam back to shore just in time to save the day!
    • Who: Trevor Finn
    • Source: "Shark Attack!" [Case 57]
    • Note: Character blamed Ice P for his downfall because Ice P drove the sharks out of the shoreline so that Ice P would make his reality TV show safe to film, causing Trevor to seek work as a parrot keeper in a zoo in Pacific Bay. Trevor was mad because without sharks in the beach, he could not be a shark expert like he was once before. So Trevor blueprinted his comeback so that he could have his life back, but Amy and the player shipped Trevor to court where he had to explain the methods before the Honorable Dante, who currently serves as the city's justice. Trevor told the Honorable Dante that Ice P was to be blamed for the destruction of his career, and continuing from Amy and the player arresting Trevor, he saw Ice P grossly drunk exiting out of the Tiki Shack, giving Trevor a good opportunity to lead him to a secluded spot in the beach. There Trevor tied Ice P's hands with sticky tape and sliced the victim's fingers with his sailing knife, threw those fingers into the sea, and shortly afterwards, dragged Ice P into the waters as well. Ice P did not go down without a fight as he struggled to stay away from the waters by lodging Trevor a bit but alas, Trevor succeeded, putting Ice P in the waters just enough for the shark to make contact with the victim, and Trevor swam away afterwards--which were grounds for the Honorable Dante issuing a lifetime jail sentence with no parole to Trevor.

    • Who: Shawn Bailey
    • Source: "Death on Wheels" [Case 58]
    • Note: Character believed that a stripper named Memphis Banach was his to take because he fell in love with her the first day he met her, but Memphis fell in love with Carlos, and in spite of Carlos's wife-beating antics, Carlos fell in love with the stripper as well. Shawn convinced Memphis to turn Carlos to the police, file a complaint, but Shawn's suggestion did not work because Memphis and Carlos were in love with each other and would never turn one another to the police no matter what. Shawn tried to reason with Carlos by texting him, but that antic also did not work. Shawn was fed up with Carlos dating Memphis, so Shawn hijacked a street racing car parked near where he lived, loitered throughout town, headed to Derek Stone's party, and convinced Carlos to run in the night's race. Moments after Shawn escorted Carlos out of Derek's flat, he punched Carlos unconscious, strapped him to the car hood with chains, and drove the car at full speed to scrape Carlos's head like a strawberry jam canister until he crashed into the crime scene. Judge Dante (with Frank's cooperation) sentenced Shawn to 20 years in jail, 5 years for street racing and 15 years for killing Carlos. Shawn replied with anger that he saved Memphis from Carlos and declared himself innocent, but Dante countered that Shawn brought more terror to Memphis's life, and then made his decision final.
  • Mighty Pete answers only if it suits him!
    • Who: Peter "Mighty Pete" Long
    • Source: "What Dies Beneath" [Case 59]
    • Note: Character is a self-centered individual who suffers from a case of wounded pride at times, in which he has to deal with things in his way to make everyone know he is the king of the mountain, feeling as if Valerie humiliated him, and if Pete had a policy of forbidding people to leave him without his permission. Valerie needed money to leave Pacific Bay for good (she lived there all her life but got tired of it), so she decided to join Mighty Pete's "Mighty Yacht Party" ring, which pleased Mighty Pete, but Valerie played very hard to get, forcing Mighty Pete to spend countless thousands in gifts to bring Valerie under control but to no avail as after Valerie left Mighty Pete, he caught wind of Valerie's motives. Valerie's fatal mistake was disclosing her love of scuba diving to Mighty Pete, as given Mighty Pete's "no leaving" premise, he sabotaged Valerie's scuba diving equipment, succeeding in Valerie's premeditated murder, grounds for Amy and the player to send Mighty Pete to trial in an instant. In court, Mighty Pete made it clear that he was the only one allowed to leave people, not the people alone, and only answers if it suits himself, causing the Honorable Dante to review a law clause stating that anyone speaking of themselves in the third person shall be punished by way of a jail sentence, thus a 45 year jail sentence (15 years for third-person speaking and 30 years for the premeditated murder of Valerie) was necessary as punishment for Mighty Pete's self-centered ways.
  • Well, tidying up is not my strong suit, Your Honor.
    • Who: Barbara Pickley
    • Source: "Dead Girl Rolling" [Case 60]
    • Note: Character is very conservative-minded when it comes to how women are to be perceived, but felt that Susie's death was a difficult decision to make, although she confessed that she had no other choice. Barbara loathed roller derby skating as Susie made new friends and did not want to listen to her advice anymore. As she found out from Becky Walden that Susie was flirting with Lenny Spitfire, Barbara felt that Susie betrayed her trust by hanging around with Lenny (which was considered Susie cheating on Howard Pickley by her standards) and as thus caused Howard to ogle at other derby girls because of Susie participating in the roller derby sport. Barbara had to rig Susie's drink bottle with Rocket Cow Energy Drink (which was confirmed by Roxie as the murder weapon, given the victim's medical records showing Susie having an allergic reaction to caffeine, with which all energy drinks are formulated), which was Barbara's only solution to make Howard stay away from the derby girls, but family values did not have to include homicide, as the evidence which incriminated Barbara were grounds for her to face trial. The Honorable Dante lambasted Barbara for domestic homicide, but Barbara defended her action by stating she had to protect Howard at all costs, not to mention the police were able to incriminate Barbara's traces throughout the case, which were grounds for a 25-year jail sentence for Barbara.

Derek already felt the sting when he was interrogated on a previous murder, fearing that the police would crash the party by force, denying him the chance to make money through the sale of drugs. What bothered Derek, though, was when Becky kept on taking pictures of the party scene throughout Ocean Shore, agitating him. To rid the world of Becky, Derek rigged Becky's cell phone with a GPS tracker so that he could track Becky's move. Using his GPS tracker, Derek was able to follow Becky as she walked away from the Little Mermaid nightclub without paying $1005 of which she owed $700 for vodka, $205 for Rocket Cow energy drinks (the same drink used to kill Susie Pickley a case before), and a mandatory $100 gratuity to Eva Sanchez. Derek found Becky at the beach, and Becky ripped one of Derek's glow sticks off, ensuing a fight. Derek knocked Becky outcold and then blasted liquid nitrogen on Becky, freezing her to death. Derek then blasted loud electronic music following her death, shattering some parts of Becky to pieces, and ran away from the crime scene shortly thereafter, which made the police able to easily incriminate Derek in spite of the amount of effort the team needed to deploy. Derek then told the Honorable Dante that he could not try him because he worked very hard to become king of the hill, but given Derek's "I'm innocent" behavior at the time of his arrest, not to mention the court finding Derek the type of person who always pursues what he wants, were grounds for the court to issue a lifetime jail sentence for Derek.
  • I remembered seeing Bill making a voodoo doll of Lee that had wounds in exactly the same places and, well... I knew Bill would believe he was the killer too!
    • Who: Shawna Knox
    • Source: "Bayou Blood" [Case 62]
    • Note: Character had to kill Lee in an act of self-defense because according to Shawna, Lee was a troublesome child and wanted to mock someone, so he chose to pick on Shawna. Shawna did not like Lee's advances as she felt it was an act of sexual harassment, and had to do something about Lee's disturbing behavior, even though she had to go to extremes. Shawna submitted a plea of guilt for manslaughter in spite of being brought before the Honorable Dante for first-degree murder charges but the Honorable Dante wanted to know as to why Shawna needed those BBQ Skewers with her, as he firmly believed self-defense can be achieved without violence. Shawna mentioned Lee's "trouble-child" premise when he started working at the Gumbo Jumbo, but added that he chose not to just bully Shawna, but wanted to sexually harass Shawna without any exceptions, as he felt he had the right to dominate Shawna by all means possible. Shawna told the Honorable Dante the purpose of her to have those BBQ Skewers with her was to be ready for Lee's trap at anytime, so when Lee attempted to sexually harass Shawna, she let Lee have it at the heart, and then pinned Lee with two more on each of his shoulders so it would look similar to a voodoo doll she found at Bill Farnham's Voodoo Shop, in which after she sent the voodoo doll to the Pacific Bay Police Force so that she would shift the blame to Bill for the murder, a feat in which did not help Shawna at all. The Honorable Dante accepted Shawna's plea of guilt for the manslaughter, alas he had to institutionalize Shawna to an institution for violent minors, in which the Honorable Dante claimed would help Shawna build better coping strategies and a new life through the years to come, since Shawna was only 17 years of age and the crime's severity did not warrant any adult-level punishments.
  • Should we let people as evil as Coleen Truman dictate us how we should live? Can you really approve of this?
    • Who: Steve Bundy
    • Source: "Easy Prey" [Case 63]
    • Note: Character felt that Coleen was a greedy banker, so it did not surprise Bayou Bleu when Coleen offered to buy Alec Howard's Gator Land for $1.00 to demolish it and build a shopping mall. When Steve tried to convince Coleen to retain Gator Land's glory, Coleen zapped him with her stun gun to inform the Bayou that no one could stand in her way, as she wanted to build Kauf Mart in Gator Land, in which Steve claimed Bayou Bleu did not care about shopping at all. Since Coleen did not listen to his plea, Steve took his hunting rifle and offed Coleen immediately after he recovered from the stun gun hit. The Honorable Dante recognized Steve taking Gator Land seriously albeit Steve claimed with Coleen dead, Bayou Bleu would be free from a shopping mall for the meantime. The judge was not up to Steve's games as speaking for the Bayou as a murderer just to save Gator Land did not warrant a kill, but Steve countered that if banks (Bay Area Bank, for example) had their way, the Bayou would lose the freedom to live, and wondered if the Honorable Dante would approve of Coleen's greed. The Honorable Dante said that the law is the law and did not care about greed or pride, making his message simple: life in jail for Coleen's death.
  • No wait! Let's talk about plants instead!
    • Who: Ray Westman
    • Source: "The Root of All Evil" [Case 64]
    • Note: Character believed that plants are people, and was not too pleased when Army Lt. Lewis attempted to hurt his beloved carnivorous plant, Julian, including but not limited to destroying the gigantic plant. Ray would go far to keep Julian alive by taking care of the plant, even if he was ordered to leave the plant rotting in the Swamp Forests of Bayou Bleu, so he took care of the plant day by day using the fertilizer formula that was considered his life's work, in spite of the formula being halted due to conflicts between the military and a company called Pacific Pharma. Frank caught Ray lying to the team during the investigation, in which Ray did not mean to kill Lt. Lewis, but unfortunately Lt. Lewis was going to make a military arrest for feeding the carnivorous plant, which Ray refused to halt when he realized Nora stared at Ray's plant as she was threatening him. Ray did not want anyone to bother his life's work, so he took advantage of Nora's inattention by snatching her gun away from her, gun-butting her unconscious using the hand gun's hilt, and then poured fertilizer on Nora so the carnivorous plant could eat Nora, killing her with its digestive acid. While Ray thought this was a perfect opportunity to see his experiment shine, Frank did not like this idea and brought Ray to trial. Although the Honorable Dante admitted to the court that he had an infatuation for plants, the court determined that Ray had taken things too far by having a carnivorous plant kill an innocent soldier, which was grounds for a 40-year jail sentence for Ray.
  • Well, it's just something hunters do. And I wanted to annoy Betty-Lou. She always spits in my beer at The Mad Cow.
    • Who: Joe Littlehat
    • Source: "Death by Moonshine" [Case 65]
    • Note: Character was a poacher. Sammy and Joe ran a moonshine distillery, which was against federal law as alcoholic drinks are regulated even in Pacific Bay. Joe created the recipe for the moonshine, and in turn expected Sammy's cooperation in accepting his help, personal respect, and a share of the profit resulting from the sale of moonshine. According to Joe, Sammy was a selfish person, but Frank countered that the moonshine partnership had excessive bumps due to a mutual disagreement between the two, so the team sent Joe to face trial for Sammy's murder. Once in trial, the Honorable Dante was prepared to indict Joe for the murder of Sammy, although the endangerment of Frank's pet turtle, Duke, was also on the list of charges, much to the justice's disbelief as Joe admitted to endangering a pet turtle in hope to get a lesser sentence. Knowing that profits were the reason for the murder, Joe told the Honorable Dante that Sammy refused to share the profits in spite of him supplying the ingredients for the moonshine, erupting into hatred. Joe then took an axe, beheaded Sammy, used eggs to alleviate the bleeding, and pinned the head on the Mad Cow's trophy mount because Joe also hated moments when Betty-Lou spat on his beer. The final verdict was a 25-year jail sentence for Joe.

    • Who: Erikah Mabayo
    • Source: "Smoke and Mirrors" [Case 66]
    • Note: Character threatened to kill them with her voodoo unless the team walked away from Erikah, to which Amy refused. The voodoo doll did not work on Amy, confirming Erikah's voodoo practice as a fad. The team lambasted Erikah for owning a brothel and utilizing fake voodoo to leave her alone, but Erikah countered by calling herself a very persuasive person and continued by assuming certain girls who become prostitutes and wanted to work for money to leave Bayou Bleu were easy to enslave to cover her tracks; however, her tracks were ruined when Alec Howard was found to have impregnated Vanessa--which triggered Vanessa's urge to leave Bayou Bleu for good. Erikah was the type of person who believed no one was allowed to expose her secrets--something Vanessa unknowingly did upon her abdication of the Bayou; so to keep herself secret, Erikah strangled Vanessa and turned the young woman into a lifeless voodoo doll. Judge Dante accused Erikah not just of the murder of Vanessa and three other women, but also defiling humanity by preying on prostitutes, whom Erikah claimed were easy to manipulate, and told Judge Dante that she was a prostitute as she was abused and tortured by men in the past. She felt that males, not females, should be charged for those crimes--causing Judge Dante to counter that justice fails due to people being too timid to speak up because of Erikah's false use of voodoo to ensure Bayou Bleu would be too timid to seek the help of justice--enough to warrant a lifetime jail sentence with no parole for Erikah. Harvey would never forgive Erikah after he found her liable for his failure in arresting her years ago.

    • Who: Ivana Golovanov
    • Source: "Heartless" [Case 67]
    • Note: Character believed people should only be permitted to marry those of their own race not to mention to preserve the integrity of the Golovanov family. One day Ivana found out Ling and her brother, Piotr Golovanov, fell in love and, after a few dates, opted to marry secretly in Ocean Shore. Ivana hated the idea of a Chinese marrying a Russian (Ivana would not tolerate Russian blood to mix with Chinese blood) and believed such race-mixing contributed to higher crime rates in Pacific Bay, so she wanted to send a message to the Chinese through an act of violence. Therefore, Ivana took Ling with her to Yuan's Garden, immobilized Ling with acupuncture needles, and used her coin to determine whether or not Ling could live any further (a feat which Russell Crane accommodated Yann Toussaint in determining the killer gambled sometime in their point of life). The coin turned to disallow Ling's right to live any further, so Ivana sliced Ling to death, emptied Ling of her heart, and then hung Ling up to a street banner, claiming the heart as a trophy. Amy was disgusted by Ivana's hatred and cruelty so she asked the player to send Ivana to trial. The Honorable Dante took Ivana's heart trophy premise as being unhygenic but Ivana defended that her violent actions solidified her commitment to keep her community Russian, believing that the Chinese do not belong in Inner City. The Honorable Dante did not like Ivana's decision to kill Ling as taking his melting pot awareness and the appreciation of the inventions the Chinese originated were grounds for a 20-year jail sentence for Ivana.
  • I'm under arrest, Mr Dante. And I'd like you to keep our private business private.
    • Who: Yuan Wong
    • Source: "Payback" [Case 68]
    • Note: Character and David were burglars three decades prior to the events of this case and David came to retrieve a cut from a robbery Yuan owed him, but instead Yuan used the money she got from various robberies to fund Yuan's Garden, her herbal business, and felt that any money she and David seized from past robberies were better spent for her business's maintenance. David did not like Yuan's change of life and asked her for money she owed him from 25 years ago, but Yuan did not like the idea of having to fund an ex-con turned beggar neither. To protect her family's honor, Yuan bumped into David at Myriam Miller's delicatessen one day and did not hesitate to blind him with hot tea. Once David was stunned, Yuan slashed David at the throat, and then knocked David outcold with a menorah, a Jewish candelabra, personally believing she had no other choice but to resort to murder. The Honorable Dante decided thus to hold Yuan liable for killing an ex-convict for loot she kept for 25 years, and opted to label Yuan as a burglar at heart. Despite her attempts to build an earnest life, Yuan was handed a 25-year jail sentence for grand homicide and for robberies outstanding. Amy did not like how the Honorable Dante started the verdict but felt certain pasts were meant to stay resident in certain personas forever.
  • Yes, Your Honor! Now, thanks to me, even more Chinese people will unite against the Russians! I know that Sue Xiong is secretly proud of me, even if she can't admit she's the gang leader!
    • Who: Tom Zhang
    • Source: "Eastern Promises" [Case 69]
    • Note: Character lived his life in solitude but could take it no more, so he resolved to do something to make a Chinese gang notice him, since he wanted to belong somewhere in the world. The task fell in proving his toughness to the Chinese community. Radovan frequented Tom and during his massage sessions, always bragged about his daughter and felt he deserved to be invited to Manka's wedding. Tom used Manka's wedding as an excuse to kill Radovan so that the Chinese gang could recognize him, but received no recognition from the Chinese gang. Frank sent Tom to trial as murdering people just for recognition was a bad idea. In his speaking in court, Tom believed that him killing Radovan would unite the Chinese community against the Russian community with feelings that even Sue Xiong was secretly proud of him, although she could not admit she was the leader of a Chinese gang, of which Judge Dante thought was a ridiculous statement. Russell Crane's psychological report suggested solitude was the driving reason that led Tom to grand homicide, but even with homicidal delusions the report declared Tom sane, which explained why Tom was given a 20-year jail sentence instead of treatment in an institution for the criminally insane.

    • Who: Shelly Dulard
    • Source: "Spineless" [Case 70]
    • Note: Character left Bayou Bleu to Inner City to became a bare-knuckled fighter. Angus won a fight against Shelly (in spite of him being a priest), but Shelly had no match loss tolerance based on the findings of Frank and the player. Shelly moved to Inner City in hopes of finding true love and a career change. Angus and Shelly fell in love and Shelly gave Angus a picture of her, but in spite of Shelly's pleas not to show it to anyone, Angus disobeyed Shelly so he could rig the fight tournament held in the fight club and as a result, Angus won the fight tournament but at the cost of Shelly sustaining moments of shattered dreams and a broken heart. Shelly had no honour, so after she lost to Angus, she consumed pints of beers, grabbed a jump rope, strangled him on-sight, and filled his body with helium to finish the job. Judge Dante recognized the victim's immorality (in which he witnessed Angus's wanton cheating and dishonesty years before this case), but made it clear that being cheated on did not warrant violence. Judge Dante admitted to the court he was a victim of cyberbullying, but admitted his morality by stating what his limits as a human being are. Judge Dante also did not like how Shelly threw garbage at Amy Young during Coleen Truman's murder investigation but alas, he issued a 20-year jail sentence for Shelly of grand homicide, to which Shelly reacted (with rage) that she never had any luck in her life. Frank felt down when he realized that he was not able to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day properly for the first time in his life due to the player's superhuman endeavor to put countless killers behind bars no matter the cost.
  • All I ever wanted was for Andrew to be safe and loved. Please, make sure that he's well taken care of when I'm in jail.
    • Who: Tammy Baker
    • Source: "Murder-Go-Round" [Case 71]
    • Note: Character viewed Odette as a bad mother because Odette refused to allow vaccinations to be administered to Andrew arising from Odette's beliefs that her ballet career ended due to her giving birth to Andrew. Tammy had enough of Odette's negligence, so she rigged Odette's coffee with blood thinners before Odette consumed her cup. One day Odette came to Tammy to pick Andrew up from school wanting to play Mommy for once but, after she consumed her coffee, she felt ill. Tammy seized Andrew so she could give Andrew the treatment Odette never gave him. Tammy wanted to make sure Odette was dead, and after she confirmed it, she took Odette's jacket, wrote the words "Evil Woman" on it, and displayed it to make Inner City aware of Odette's mannerisms. Amy wanted to know where Tammy held Andrew, so Tammy told Amy that Andrew was safe in her apartment. Andrew was then found inside Tammy's apartment, but he wanted to know where Tammy was, but Amy told him that she and the player were present to send him back to Nikolai. In court, Tammy told Judge Dante the reason for the murder was to ensure Andrew was properly treated (starting with immunizations, found in Tammy's wallet), but alas, Judge Dante was confident (in spite of Nikolai's mental instability) that Nikolai could find a nanny with no criminal record, and therefore, Judge Dante gave Tammy a lifetime jail sentence with no eligibility for parole.

  • And I would have succeeded, if <Rank> <Name> hadn't put their nose in my business!!
    • Who: Rupert Snow
    • Source: "Under the Skin" [Case 73]
    • Note: Character was the illegitimate son of Nikolai and Sue, but was abandoned by the two community leaders when he was one year of age because both were too weak to stand up to societal pressure from their respective communities, so to show his power, he hired Mark to gather organs from various Inner City citizens for him. Frank could not believe Rupert's reasons for the murder, but Rupert was more than willing to reveal his sick plans before Judge Dante. In court, Rupert told Judge Dante he had to rely on countless foster families wondering who his parents were since he was a toddler. Rupert had to make his fortune as a businessman before embarking on his sick quest to find Nikolai and Sue, but felt betrayed when he discovered that he was the son of the leaders of two rival communities as the Russo-Chinese feud did not fly out of Rupert's fingers. Money was the only motive the community leaders had for the Russo-Chinese feud and, as such, Rupert believed he was the chosen one to end the Russo-Chinese feud, and admitted he hired Mark to collect the heart of Ling (full of life and hope), the lungs of Radovan (to breathe the cleansed air of Inner City), and the spine of Angus (the backbone of society) to unite all races together in a bloodbath. Rupert decided thus he needed to skin Nikolai and Sue to death to remind Inner City the embodiment of peace between ethnicities, and although Rupert succeeded in skinning Nikolai alive, he blamed the player for his failure to do the same thing to Sue. This sickened Judge Dante like never before, and the court decided a lifetime jail sentence for Nikolai's murder, his involvement in the organ-stealing scheme, and the attempted murder of Sue Xiong was appropriate for Rupert. Frank admitted that the case was somewhat too much for him as he believed the case was crazed to no end.

    • Who: Linda Buttons

    • Note: Character was a wife of Elmer who she kills. Day by day, Linda could not wait for Elmer to retire from his jazz career so that he would spend his time with Linda after winning his jazz award for a final time. Since Amy suspected Linda of fearing broken promises from Elmer, Linda opened up for the reason as to why she attacked Elmer with his saxophone and used a radio to play "After the Storm" while offing him for good. Linda got sick of Elmer choosing music over her for three decades, and because of Elmer's love for music, she turned to a life of alcoholism, forcing Elmer to seek rehabilitation for Linda's drinking. Amy and the player did not hesitate to ship Linda to trial. In court, Linda told Judge Dante that Elmer was married to jazz music more than he was married to her, so she committed the graphic murder and transformed his body parts into musical notes in Jazz Town's tram system. Linda did not like rehab, so she killed Elmer like the aforementioned. Judge Dante told Linda that his wife would be mad if he loved homicide trials more than her, but knew his personal life came first before trials. Aside from Elmer's alcohol rehabilitation requirement Judge Dante took note of (and agreed with Elmer on that statement), he informed Linda that a 20-year jail sentence was the judgment she deserved for the murder of her husband.

    • Who: Marie Bordeaux
    • Source: "Cloudy with a Chance of Murder" [Case 75]
    • Note: Character lost her only daughter Colette weeks prior to the events of this case but Amy countered that murder was not a proper way to cope and informed her that evidence incriminated her to be the killer of Clifford, prompting Amy to suggest Marie to feel guilt for the murder she committed. To Marie, Clifford was nothing but a heartbreaker and by offing Clifford, those who grieved because of Clifford's past transgressions could finally move on. Due to Clifford's faults, Marie disowned Clifford as a brother because as an uncle entrusted to protect Colette at all costs, Clifford did nothing to protect Colette from the likes of Hurricane Yves. Judge Dante stated that Marie killed Clifford to avenge her daughter, but not without notating that Clifford was her brother, but in her defense Marie told Judge Dante she lost Colette because of Clifford as if Colette was still alive, she would be observing her tenth birthday as of Marie's hearing. Marie then told Judge Dante that the moment Colette was killed by Hurricane Yves, she invited Clifford to attend Colette's funeral to apologize for the transgressions he was liable for, but instead Clifford ignored Marie's invitation, which infuriated Marie like never before. So in response to her brother's ignorance, Marie grabbed a weed whacker from Clifford's backyard, sliced his neck with it, and shoved him to bleed to death whilst sitting on a red couch at one of Hurricane Yves's devastation areas. Although Clifford's negligence caused a lot of people to lose everything during the devastation of Hurricane Yves, the court decided that a 10-year jail sentence (with a chance for parole in 5 years) was mandatory for Marie.

    • Who: Harriet Davis
    • Source: "Open Wounds" [Case 76]
    • Note: Character abhorred violence, but when Frank had to go through the trouble of telling her about the mint julep residue she stained on the cannonball, she admitted to her transgression. Harriet did not like the idea of what she saw as a rifle shooting practice invitation placed within school campus limits at a school she taught at and held strong beliefs that encouraging violence was not to the best of society's interests, but in spite of her beliefs, she was shipped to court. As Judge Dante led-off the hearing on an uncivilized note, Harriet told the court reenactments and rifle shooting practice classes that encourage violence are out-of-touch with society and took time to criticize Judge Dante for approving war-simulated reenactments to pave the way of a future without violence. Harriet then told Judge Dante that Stanford forgot the real reason the American Civil War erupted, but revealed her real motive for her crime: The Civil War should be remembered for preserving the Union and ensuing freedom for the slaves instead of honoring local Pacific Bay hero Dexter Blade, in which Harriet's ancestor was a slave and joined the Colored Brigade to aid the Union in defeating the Confederacy at all costs. Harriet was sentenced to 20 years in county jail for the murder of Joe Stanford in spite of her non-violent crusade.
  • You must understand! Theo's activities posed a serious threat! Taking his life saved a thousand people!
    • Who: Claude Lamothe
    • Source: "Under the Thunderdome" [Case 77]
    • Note: Character was disgusted about Theo's constant thievery of his pharmacy and believed Theo's actions put lives in Jazz Town in jeopardy (given the regulations placed on prescription medicine) as the victim believed everyone should have access to quality medicine. The visit before Theo's death, Claude tried to reason with him, but to no avail, prompting Claude to commit the murder. Claude grabbed a weather vane that was broken during Hurricane Yves, followed Theo to the Jazz Town Thunderdome with a GPS, confronted the victim, and ended Theo's life by thrusting the weather vane into his throat. Afterwards, Claude placed Theo's body in a military crate and fled the crime scene before Colonel Spangler arrived. Claude tried desperately to convince Amy and the player that the murder was warranted to avert unlawful use of controlled prescriptions, but Amy made clear that the law was the law and no one is allowed to take the law into their own hands. The Honorable Dante told Claude in court that he could have no more free lollipops in the pharmacy, but going on-topic Judge Dante told Claude that murder does not fall into the best of the public good's interest but Claude told Judge Dante that he saved Jazz Town from an unlawful prescription distribution spree that would potentially become catastrophic. Judge Dante (mirroring what Amy told Claude) stated that vigilance with violence does not pay under any circumstances, and weighing both the brutality of the murder not to mention Claude's illicit vigilance were grounds for a 25-year jail sentence without parole for Claude.

    • Note: Character learned of Scott's hidden loot in which Scott refused to out details, but also had to put up with Scott's bullying during his hard time. When Andre learned of Scott's breakaway from prison, he saw an opportunity to get even with his oppressive cell mate by exploiting his weakness, in this case Scott hated rats. Andre lured Scott into the abandoned theater, and then he tied the escaped convict using his military training. Andre intended to torture Scott so that he would learn the location of the hidden loot but little did he know he covered him with Rat Attract—allowing the rats to cannibalize his former cell mate. Andre attempted to release him after Scott bubbled out the hidden loot's location, but to no avail. Judge Dante informed the court that he had his vehicle stolen by looters but also pin-pointed that Pacific Bay rats are protected species under Pacific Bay law, a move which infuriated Judge Dante for the first time in the game. For the premeditated murder of Scott Lee Allan and the alleged endangerment of the Pacific Bay rats, Andre was sentenced to 40 years in jail assigned to a cell mate who was known to snore in their sleep. Judge Dante also gave Andre a chance to come clean by asking him where Scott's loot was located at, but Andre refused to out it before Judge Dante. Therefore, the sentence stood.
  • Nothing. I couldn't afford a lawyer, so I'm not saying anything.
    • Who: Veronica Blade
    • Source: "The Eye of the Storm" [Case 79]
    • Note: Character willfully dropped a couple of bombs during her fiery conversation with Amy and the player. Veronica hated the revelation of people forgetting about her family's involvement in building Pacific Bay's Jazz Town. In addition, she also hated Pacific Bay's negligence of her estate's preservance as her land and estate are protected as a historical site under Pacific Bay law. Veronica stole Colonel Spangler's weather machine (and its remote) and created Hurricane Yves to turn things around, which shocked Amy as she found out Veronica was responsible for Hurricane Yves, the storm Chief Marquez mentioned when the player started work in Jazz Town. Veronica created Hurricane Yves to destroy her house so she could disburse her estate's insurance money to leave the district, but Peggy told the insurance company Hurricane Yves did not inflict enough damage to the Blade Estate to warrant approval of the insurance disbursement. Veronica dropped another bomb when she created Hurricane Zelda to transform Jazz Town back into a swamp—the way her ancestors found it centuries before this case, and vowed to keep the remote for herself to ensure Hurricane Zelda's destruction, but Zelda's winds knocked the remote out of her hands, and Amy got a hold of it. Amy turned the remote off to stop Hurricane Zelda, which disgusted Veronica as her plans were ruined by the weather machine being turned off. The player then handcuffed Veronica and read her rights before trial began a few hours later. Judge Dante expressed his solitary thanks to the Pacific Bay Police Department for the halt of Hurricane Zelda, but Amy assured Judge Dante that she was only doing her job. Judge Dante then directed his attention to Veronica, chastising her for her attempted destruction of Jazz Town with Hurricanes Yves and Zelda with the use of Colonel Spangler's weather machine, and labeled money as her motive for the crimes, not to mention Veronica's fatal wallop of Peggy to keep the storms guaranteed. Veronica had no money to afford a lawyer for her defense, so Judge Dante made it clear that she would be held liable for being the cause of Yves and Zelda alongside the death and destruction those two man-made storms harvested. Veronica was issued a lifetime jail sentence for the premeditated electrocution of Peggy Pascal and for the largest crime spree in Jazz Town. Amy felt that this was the craziest case due to the man-made storms backed by a motive.

    • Who: Freddie Alonzo
    • Source: "Hanging by a Thread" [Case 80]
    • Note: Character told Russell and the player he had no time to waste putting up with the team's vile accusations during the Carnival preparations, but Russell made it clear that the Puppeteer was selfish and cold-blooded, believing themselves to be liberators of children when in reality they had destroyed lives of orphaned children. Freddie told the team he was alright without his parents alongside Louie Cooper (Dinah's son), but Russell informed Freddie that his parents were the first to die, and inquired about Freddie killing his parents due to them being too restrictive on him thus exposing Freddie as the Puppeteer. Russell continued by stating that the Puppeteer was an emotionally weak middle-aged man who still behaved like a child, and as such, Freddie admitted he murdered Dinah. Freddie's parents would not let him do anything he wanted, but Freddie believes kids are free people, and hates how they have to live in the prison of their parents' care, so he started his killing spree through an act of matricide and patricide. Besides that, Freddie killed Yann's parents when Yann was 14 due to Yann's argument with his parents three decades before the events of this case. Freddie also killed the parents of a young girl named Audrey years back (mentioned during the events of Under the Thunderdome), alas unearthing himself as the Puppeteer. Freddie felt free after he killed his parents, and by killing other controlling parents, he wanted those children to feel the joy of being free as well, which flagged him as a loose cannon. Russell had had enough with the chit-chat, so the player handcuffed Freddie for trial. Judge Dante hated Freddie's idea of setting 14-year old children free from parents, but Freddie countered that parents live boring, restrictive lives, and the only thrill parents have are controlling their children. Yann took a stand and told Freddie no human being who is the parent of their children deserves a fate worse than death, but Freddie told Yann he had seen him verbally fight with his parents during the Carnival, making Yann unhappy after the verbal fight—which prompted Freddie to murder Yann's parents. Yann told Freddie that every teenager quarrels with their parents, but that makes no excuse for murder, and felt Freddie's actions scarred him for the rest of his life. Freddie told Yann he freed him from his parents, but Judge Dante had heard enough—he made it clear that Russell was right about Freddie being a destroyer, and for the murder of Dinah Cooper—among numerous other murders that took place in Jazz Town over the past three decades—with the alias of the Puppeteer, Freddie was sentenced to life in jail.

Sven made it clear that he was a sexist and that he hated the idea of women being in ski jumping as he recalled during his time ski jumping and the Frosty Cup were serious sports for men only before he was forced to include a women's segment of the sporting event. Sven competed in the Frosty Cup when he was younger but failed to garnish a medal, and as such, allowing women to land a medal in the Frosty Cup would be out of the question on his watch. Amy and the player turned Sven to face trial before Judge Dante. Sven told the court that winter sports had been meant for males for centuries as a true test of heroism but stood tall with his two feet during his testimony. Sven hated the fact that he had to make ski ramps safer to accommodate women which he believed would be a waste in the ISA's budget, causing Sven to believe that there was no more glory in winter sports. What drove Sven to murder was that Anjulie threatened to sue the ISA for alleged sexism unless he allowed women in the Frosty Cup, but Judge Dante told Sven that gender discrimination did not pay under any circumstances. Sven was thus sentenced to 25 years in jail for the premeditated murder of Anjulie and promoting sexism in winter sports.

    • Who: Tiffany Neng
    • Source: "Hearts of Ice" [Case 82]
    • Note: Character fell in love with Juan Rodrigo at one point in her life, but Juan Rodrigo broke her trust by allowing Girly Gossips Magazine to publish intimate photos of Juan Rodrigo and herself, costing Tiffany her job at Girly Gossips Magazine. Amy told Tiffany that a gossip columnist creates articles about other people's secrets albeit she did not like the idea of Tiffany wanting to keep her personal life secret as Amy felt it would not be fair to others. Tiffany felt that Juan Rodrigo outed a personal matter that was meant to be preserved behind closed doors, which drove her to blood and gore. Amy and the player had enough of Tiffany, so the player took her to trial. Tiffany told Judge Dante about the humiliation she experienced which led her to murder Juan Rodrigo, but Judge Dante saw Tiffany's heartbreak as an excuse to end someone's life in violence and blood. Tiffany believed murder was the best lesson for heartbreakers like Juan Rodrigo, but besides that Tiffany failed herself by showing her true feelings to Juan Rodrigo, who turned out to be a heartbreaker. Judge Dante saw Tiffany's testimony as an excuse, as he made it clear that Tiffany failed the law on top of her life, which earned her a 20-year jail sentence.
  • Paula should have just worked with me, let me guide her! I never would have had to go so far if she had just played along!
    • Who: Ruthie Samson
    • Source: "Into the Woods" [Case 83]
    • Note: Character told the authorities that Paula and herself were buddies, but when Frank countered that she matched the description of Paula's killer, she admitted to the murder. Ruthie was disappointed in Paula's lackluster coverage of Logan's Pass in the "Pretty Planet" tour guidebook and insisted on Paula's unconditional help to make Logan's Pass the next Aspen. Paula opted to remove Logan's Pass from her tour guidebook, which went against Ruthie's orders all the way through. Ruthie felt that Paula's insubordination was more than she could take, so she had to resort to bloodlust to punish Paula for such. Ruthie suckered her into the timber mill by pretending to be Judd Tucker, the lumberjack who had saved Paula's life not-so-long ago. Ruthie cornered Paula albeit the victim climbed into the saw table to get away from her. Paula lost traction, allowing Ruthie to tie her into submission, igniting the arbor saw, and slicing her like butter. Frank heard enough so the player shipped Ruthie to court. Ruthie told Judge Dante that Paula should have worked with Ruthie instead of against her during the tour guide creation as a justification for the murder but Judge Dante made it clear that there were non-violent ways to deal with Paula's wanton insubordination, and made clear that homicide was not a valid decision to deal with insubordination. As a result, Judge Dante issued a 25-year jail sentence (without parole) to Ruthie.
  • Taste? What did it taste like?! It tasted like sadness, like regret, like lost hope and dead love.
    • Who: Bobby Prince
    • Source: "The Hunger Games" [Case 84]
    • Note: Character was Amy's ex-sweetheart. Amy was aghast when the player found Bobby guilty of grand homicide, to which he thought the player made a mistake, but Amy sought to put her game head back on when she presented evidence of Bobby's guilt during the moment of his arrest. Amy snapped at Bobby for his wanton lies and demanded him to tell the player the truth, and so Bobby complied. Bobby had no food and/or hope and did not like the revelation that Captain Hugo kept his greedy self as the man of the spotlight, specifically Captain Hugo and Bobby looked for help, but when an avalanche throttled the two, Captain Hugo took everything away from Bobby and left him for dead. Bobby survived the avalanche, but was bereft of his survival supplies thanks to Captain Hugo's thievery. Bobby was starving, so he pounced on Captain Hugo, smashed his head with a broken plane controller, and then tied the pilot to a spit allowing Captain Hugo to be roasted over the lava. Bobby controlled his cannibalistic instinct after Amy's arrival, but Amy did not care about Bobby anymore and alas the player took Bobby to court. Bobby told Judge Dante he had to do anything to survive as if there was no tomorrow. Judge Dante gave Bobby 30 years in jail with mandatory psychological counseling for the cannibalistic murder of Captain Hugo aside from the jokes he cracked before issuing the final judgment. The arrest stunned Amy to no end as although she was glad to be back in White Peaks, she realized her childhood life were all lies all along—forcing her to take refuge in the snowy hills to clear her mind of the lies which lie within her youth. Frank Knight had to talk some sense into Amy as the outcome was more than what she could handle not to mention the player telling her that there is always hope and good within her.
  • That'd be a start. I ensured that Virginia's work will be noticed, recognized and remembered! I've made her an immortal! She's part of the Night Walker legend now!
    • Who: Lola Dickinson
    • Source: "The White Peaks Project" [Case 85]
    • Note: Character stated that she intended to finish a documentary about the Night Walker's existence but at the condition of having Virginia alive. However, Frank had to cut off Lola for a moment to prove her guilt due to evidence found in the murder investigation, including but not limited to her blood found on the pocket knife Virginia used to fend for herself before she was murdered. Lola thus admitted to grand homicide and explicitly made it clear that it was an accident, so she explained what happened before both Frank and the player. People in White Peaks wanted historical information about the masked creature known as the Night Walker, and in order to simulate this feat, Lola talked to Virginia about the Night Walker. However, she angered the victim every time she talked about it in front of her face. Alas Lola followed Virginia as if she was the Night Walker to instill fear into the victim, resulting in Virginia being terrified due to the Night Walker following her. Lola then revealed herself to Virginia, resulting in the latter stabbing Lola with a pocket knife, forcing Lola to shove Virginia against a tree, but she did not know that the amount of force she exerted impaled Virginia. Frank thus made it clear to Lola that she lied to both the player and himself, so the player shipped Lola to face trial. Lola told Judge Dante that Virginia would be remembered for the work she had done for the Night Walker documentary, deducing the murder made the victim a part of the Night Walker legend. Judge Dante was disgusted since he believed Virginia was entitled to a road of opportunities which Lola denied through an act of murder. He decided thus that the murder was not an accident as Lola originally thought it was, so he gave the film producer a 25-year jail sentence for the first-degree murder of Virginia Watchbird.
  • Well, Roberto was an exception: he was ugly as sin, but he almost blew my cover. That was just damage control.
    • Who: Duncan Young
    • Source: "The End of the Night" [Case 86]
    • Note: Character was aghast to know that the player managed to incriminate him as the one who killed Roberto, to which Amy assumed that the player made a false arrest, but as the junior cop was ready to concede, Hannah Choi waltzed in with Roberto's phone. Hannah had to spend tedious minutes to retrieve Roberto's recording in its entirety and she was ready to present a never-seen-before footage of Roberto's murder. Roberto was spotted by Duncan, whom he thought was the Night Walker. Roberto wanted Duncan to scatter away, but Duncan told the urban legend hunter not to be scared. Roberto knew what Duncan had been up to, and as such, he wanted to out the truth behind the missing women to the police, but Duncan would not let Roberto have things his way as he taught himself how to walk after being crippled by a gunshot with a thirst for blood, and to demonstrate his power, he punctured Roberto to death to cover his tracks. Amy was fed up with Duncan due to the lies he infused to White Peaks, so she pointed her gun to him, believing that he admitted to his wrongdoings only after Hannah managed to present the truth thanks to the never-seen-before footage from Roberto's phone. Duncan pleaded with Amy to drop the charges for the love of her family, but Amy chose the law over her family and permitted the player to send Duncan to trial. Judge Dante informed Duncan that he punctured Roberto to death with icicles not to mention him being liable for freezing at least three missing women to death under the Night Walker guise, proving the Night Walker legend to be a fad. Judge Dante was surprised that Duncan never told anyone he could walk after being crippled from a gunshot years before the events of this case, to which Duncan replied no one deserved to know this, thus concluding that he had the right to keep secrets that would benefit his person. Duncan then took a stand as to why he used the Night Walker persona. Duncan was one of Pacific Bay PD's finest assets, but when he was forced to step down as a police officer due to him being shot in the spine (not to mention being confined in a wheelchair), he left with his pride shattered in ruins. After being paralyzed, Duncan healed his paralysis to walk again, but he made things clear that he had a lot in common with the original Night Walker—a mythical creature that was once a legit man who served but got disfigured in the Civil War and, instead of being treated as a hero, was treated as a monster due to his disfigured face. Both Duncan and the original Night Walker were heroes shunned by society. Judge Dante then wanted to know why Duncan froze the three women to death, to which Duncan responded that the three women represented what he lost as a cop: beauty, youth, and happiness. Duncan wanted to preserve those women in ice so that they would not be broken like him. Duncan then admitted that he killed Roberto since the victim nearly blew his cover. Duncan was indicted for the murder of Roberto Vasquez, and for a series of brutal murders and unknown counts of obstruction of justice that took place in White Peaks, committed under the guise of the "Night Walker", which was enough for Judge Dante to issue a lifetime jail sentence for Amy's brother. This pyrrhic victory left Amy shattered emotionally.

    • Note: Character attempted to persuade the police that he had nothing to do with Felicia's death, but when Frank informed him that evidence incriminated him as the killer, he snapped by telling the team to keep his beloved chihuahua out of the murder. The player then shipped Tucker to trial so that he could explain his reasons for the murder before Judge Dante. Tucker told the court that Felicia ruined his life, and in spite of him working as the actress's assistant, she treated Tucker as if he was her slave. Tucker was forced to do errands and chores for the actress and sometimes he would get yelled at by Felicia if he did something wrong. Felicia promised Tucker that she would introduce him to some of her agents so that he would be as famous as her, but Tucker saw her as a liar, making it clear that the actress abused him. Judge Dante informed Tucker that he was arrested previously for cocaine possession albeit Frank was aghast to know that Tucker did not mention narcotics during the murder investigation. According to Judge Dante, Tucker was pulled over the night before he offed Felicia for speeding with no driver's license, in which street patrollers found narcotics in the car's trunk. The narcotics were Felicia's, which Tucker was forced to grab for her during transit, but the street patrollers assumed the narcotics to be his property, and because of this Tucker was faced with a criminal record that would prevent him from becoming a celebrity in his own right. Tucker wanted revenge, so he followed Felicia until he boxed her to the Ivywood sign and, upon cornering the actress, slashed her with razor blades—thus tying her to the sign to make the public aware of her monstrosity. Judge Dante made things clear that there is no excuse to murder, so he gave Tucker a 20-year jail sentence for the murder of Felicia Steppingstone.

    • Note: Character claimed to have loved her daughter too much to kill her. Miranda showed signs of emotional instability suggesting that she felt regret for her daughter's death. After Frank's continuous hits on her, Miranda admitted to the crime. Judge Dante remembered Jenny's annoying voice when he watched a couple of soap opera episodes of her with his granddaughter. Anecdotes aside, he wanted to know Miranda's motives. Miranda wanted to help Jenny out during her rehearsal of a live-action adaption of Gaston Dumas's fairy tale The Glass Princess. Her emotional insecurities caused her to assume that she bothered Jenny more than she helped out. Furthermore, Jenny said she did not need her help anymore. Miranda looked at the mirror and realized that shewas once a beautiful princess, but due to her age she could no longer be a princess like Jenny. Miranda said she sacrificed her life to raise Jenny: her pregnancy forced her to put her career on hold, and her subsequent divorce necessitated her to raise Jenny all by herself. Overcome with anger because of all her revelations, she slammed Jenny to the mirror and stabbed her with the glass debris. Judge Dante gave a 30-year jail sentence to Miranda.

    • Who: Luz Lucha
    • Source: "Wild Wild Death" [Case 89]
    • Note: Character tried to frame Tex Houlihan. Frank soon made her slip that killing Horace "was a piece of cake". Horace lost in a gamble against her, but refused to pay after he lost multiple times, enraging the wrestler. Luz pretended to forgive him, and gave him whiskey for good will. In truth, the whiskey was rigged with ketamine, which made Horace lose control of himself. This allowed Luz to tie his elbows and his knees to four horses. She scared the horses by playing a rattlesnake sound clip on her phone. They ran away, pulling out Horace's limbs in the process. After her statement, Luz removed her mask after Frank said that she was just hiding under it. This revealed a skull birthmark on her forehead, and Frank soon realized that was why her nickname was La Calavera (Spanish for "the skull"). Frank and the player shipped the wrestler to court. In court, Judge Dante felt uncomfortable because of Luz's mask. Luz stated her reasons for the murder afterwards. Horace promised Luz that he would pay all the money he owed her, but broke his promise multiple times. Luz then used a photograph of her beating her wrestling opponent with Horace's face on said opponent, and the "Dead Man's Hand" to threaten the victim so that he would pay her back. Horace still refused to feel threatened, stating that a female wrestler was no match for a man. Luz felt like it was the final straw, so she killed him. Judge Dante gave a 25-year jail sentence to Luz. Frank said that even though Horace had no honor, that was no reason for murder.
  • No way! I can handle anything but being another shoulder to cry on!
    • Who: Walter Fellows
    • Source: "Murdertown" [Case 90]
    • Note: Character was a bartender. Amy and the player could not find Walter in the hotel bar as they went to arrest him. They found out that Walter was attempting to resist arrest. They immediately rushed to the Pacific Bay Airport, thus finally catching up with Walter. In response, Walter said he was escaping to get over his grief. Amy countered by presenting evidence against him. The bartender then assumed that the player arrested the wrong person, but Amy continued to lambaste him for Lindsay's death. Walter eventually admitted to the crime. Lindsay always wanted to talk about her problems with her boyfriend Dick Shakespeare and her step-mother Velma Bannister. Walter got tired of hearing her problems day by day, and he felt angry that others could not hear his side of his story for at least once. Walter devised a plan to start a new life away from Ivywood, so he opted to help Lindsay fly out of Ivywood's reac. The socialite gave the bartender money and expensive earrings to look after. Walter knew that the face value of what Lindsay gave to him would be more than enough to start a new life. He told the socialite to meet him at the movie set of Murder by Moonlight at her earliest convenience, but that was just half the battle. Since Walter had to put up with Lindsay's problems day after day, he knew the individuals who hated her the most, so before he stabbed the socialite to death, he framed the other suspects. The movie set would be the perfect scene to implicate Dick due to him being the star of Murder by Moonlight. He also implicated the victim's father, Hubert Bannister, by placing a Utopian death warrant with his signature on it at the boardwalk. He made a simulated fortune teller with Lindsay's likeness in order to raise suspicions on Rico Damascus. Walter also attempted to throw off the player in the process by making a phone call as an anonymous caller. In spite of all this, Walter was still caught and shipped to court. In court, Walter stated his disapproval of putting up with other people's problems after what he had to put up with serving Lindsay day after day. So, in conclusion, Judge Dante simply gave Walter a 10-year jail sentence for the murder of Lindsay Bannister, framing innocent people of a crime to deceive the Pacific Bay Police, and for not stating his motive.

    • Source: "Star Crime" [Case 91]
    • Note: Character was a co-star of the Warzone Pacific and an Utopian member. After initially refusing to admit to the crime, Daniel eventually gave in. Daniel believed that Rex was untalented and that he abused his Utopian faith to get the lead role for Warzone Pacific, making him a traitor to the cult. He also wanted Rex gone so that he could have some time to shine in Ivywood and to make his cult proud. Furthermore, Daniel felt that the victim was not well-synchronized with the cult's faith. To commit the deed, he stole a bottle of acid from the prop room, and threw it at Rex when he and the victim were alone on the set. He placed the body to resemble the Utopian statuette of "Adel", a mythological Utopian figure who according to the myth, was accused of betraying his brothers and breaking the teachings of the cult's faith. Daniel fled the scene, hoping that the acid would destroy the evidence. Despite all the tricks, he was still sent to court. In court, Judge Dante thought Daniel was an alien, and so said that he was not allowed to govern extraterrestrial affairs. The actor replied that it was nothing more than just makeup. Despite his alleged xenophobia, the judge concluded that a murder is a felony, issuing a 30-year jail sentence to Daniel for grand homicide. Amy felt happy and pumped, saying she was back at the action for real. She also said that they should be careful about the Utopians.

    • Note: Character was enraged when a storyboard revealed that he was the first to die, as Margaret promised him a prominent role in the film. One day in the set, Tobias throttled Margaret with a shield, tied her to a stone pillar, and used his golden brooch to pick the lock of the lion's cage. The lion broke out and killed Margaret. Tobias then ran to the symphony room, and fled from the lion using the emergency exit. Prior to the murder, Tobias had also written a death threat to Margaret in Latin, but it only tipped the odds to Amy and the player as they shipped the actor to trial. In court, Judge Dante knew Tobias played a couple of grumpy elder roles, and so hailed him as a "grandpa of the silver screen". The actor replied he wanted to be known as a star in his own right. Furthermore, Tobias admitted that he could not land any major roles in his career lately and hoped his role in Legacy to be something big. He believed that he had the right to be remembered as a star, for his work in the silver screen was a legacy to remember. Judge Dante issued a 20-year jail sentence to Tobias for premeditated homicide.

    • Note: Character pretended that she did not kill him, but when Frank listed the evidence they got, the actress confessed her guilt. Both Lizzie and Fabrizio loved each other. However, Fabrizio was poor, taking him months to buy plane tickets to Florence. Lizzie thought herself foolish for believing she could escape with him. When she found out that she was pregnant with his baby, she realized that she had to do something to save her career and her engagement to Tyler Snakes. Lizzie killed Fabrizio to preserve her values. Frank was disgusted because Lizzie's baby would be orphaned. Nonetheless, the player shipped the actress to trial right away. In court, Lizzie stated before Judge Dante that her career in Ivywood was far more important than a getaway to Italy with Fabrizio. This prompted Dante to ask Lizzie if those third class tickets were the driving force behind her decision to kill Fabrizio. She replied that she had higher standards, even if he impressed her with tickets to Italy. The motive seemed deceiving, but Judge Dante simply issued a 20-year jail sentence for Lizzie.

    • Note: Character offered a smoke to the player as a condition to have her rights read while she waited for her husband's lawyers to arrive. Russell, with his manipulative demeanour, asked the femme fatale to refrain from smoking—especially with poisoned cigarettes. Velma proceeded to state that the police had nothing against her. Russell pointed out that everyone admired Velma's persistence. Tyler, on the other hand, had the guts to reject her and bruise her ego immensely. Velma broke down and finally admitted that she was indeed responsible for Tyler's death. Her motive, however, was to gain access to the TV room. Velma believed she could "save" Ivywood from the Utopians' brainwashing plan. Instead of being brainwashed to follow the cult, she wanted to use her own recording to brainwash people into thinking she was the most beautiful woman, and to obeying and loving her. However, Tyler stood in the way between Velma and her plan, so she took Tyler out. As the statement came to an end, Russell and the player shipped the femme fatale to trial. In court, Velma said she used her charm all her life to seduce people to get what she wanted. The older she became however, the more difficult it got. She believed that there was always going to be someone younger and more beautiful than her, with Tyler making her realize that her powers were slowly fading with age. However, Velma, yearning fame, refused to be uglier than someone else, so she formulated her plan. Hearing enough, Judge Dante, disappointed by not being able to watch the ceremony, finally sentenced the femme fatale to 18 years of hard time for the premeditated murder of Tyler Snakes.

    • Note: Character was surprised about what the player found. Frank presented the evidence to make Jordan admit to the crime, which he eventually did. Jordan saw Cal hitch-hiking by the side of Route 76 to get away from Rhine Canyon, so he pulled over and tried to talk some sense into him. Cal took a picture of Jordan as a memoir of Rhine Canyon, saying he would not return to Rhine Canyon after he left. Jordan tried to force Cal back into the Stark Farm pickup truck. Cal tried to attack his grandfather, but he dodged and shoved him to the cactus. Cal was stuck in the cactus. Jordan panicked since the victim started bleeding to death so Jordan fled the crime scene and left Cal for dead. Frank heard enough, so the player shipped Jordan to trial. Judge Dante felt that domestic homicide was a bit harsh. Jordan admitted that he was a bad grandparent but the Judge said that Jordan should have called an ambulance rather than fleeing the scene. Jordan meant to pass his fortune to Cal. Because Cal wanted to follow his own path instead of manage the farm, friction between Jordan and Cal ensued. Although Judge Dante accepted that this murder was accidental, a murder was a murder, with a 10-year jail sentence issued for the farmer.

    • Note: Character had no clue as to why Amy and the player would arrest him, but when Amy informed Louis about the evidence the player gathered to incriminate Louis, he admitted the truth. Louis believed he descended from a race of aliens from outer space, as he matched the description of an ancient alien race. Louis felt lonely because given that he was the only alien on Earth. He even taught himself Aztec to communicate with the aliens. Louis assisted Burt in finding the statue. He then punctured Burt to death, tied him to the ruins, pulled his heart out, and placed needles on Burt's heart so that the Aztec statue would talk. Louis also left a camcorder with his message to the aliens so that more aliens would come to Earth as a part of his plan. Amy had enough of Louis, so the player shipped him to Judge Dante to face trial. Judge Dante felt that he had no power over intergalactic matters in which Louis felt honored since he was not of the planet. Judge Dante spotted Louis's delusional condition on the court files, identifying him as human. He then indicted Louis for the sacrificial murder of Burt Montana. Louis was sentenced to 30 years in prison, much to his distaste.

    • Note: Character stated the team made a mistake arresting him but finally admitted the crime when the evidence was presented to him. Bruce managed to make corn grow in the desert, which was a huge step against hunger. He was about to auction his project to the big companies. If the big companies bought Bruce's project and implemented it in Rhine Canyon, agriculture would take over, pushing the oil industry out. This would leave Jake and his fellow workers unemployed. To pass on his oil-drilling work to his son and to prevent his impending unemployment, he knocked the scientist out with a wrench before chaining him to a pipe. He cut his stomach open and left him for the vultures he attracted with some sunflower seeds. Jake was then shipped to the court. In court Judge Dante asked Jake if he could fill his tank given he was an oil well worker. Jokes aside, he stated that a man who was about to help the world was murdered. Furthermore, vultures are used to dead meat, whilst live meat could have given them indigestion. For the murder of Bruce Green and animal abuse, Jake was given a 25-year jail sentence before adjourning.

    • Note: Character was a Border Patrol Officer turned murderer. Frank hated the revelation of a border patrol officer breaking the law. As a border patrol officer, he had to give Manny the benefit of a doubt although he grew up being taught not to trust outsiders for a reason. Timothy was fed up with Manny lying to border patrol officials that he was a citizen. Timothy then went to the victim's meth lab. During the struggle, Manny was able to spill chemicals on Timothy. Even then, he was able to behead Manny with a machete. He stuck his head into a spit, and wrote a warning to foreigners to stay away from Pacific Bay.Frank felt that it was an act of racism by killing a foreigner. Timothy believed that he was doing serious police work. The act was still a murder, so Timothy was shipped to court. Judge Dante demanded Timothy to state his case in murder. Timothy stated wanted to protect Pacific Bay from the likes of Manny. Nevertheless, criminals were supposed to be arrested and tried in the court of law, instead of being punished by death. Timothy defended his decision by stating that the liar deserved to die. The judge said that it was still a murder, so he gave Timothy a 30-years jail sentence, and suspension from his job.

    • Note: Character thought the team had no proof that he killed Tom but Amy told the candidate to drop the attitude by presenting the evidence incriminating him. Brad said that he shot Nelson, but never knew that the murder weapon was fully functional. Brad wanted to play a prank on Tom, his teacher, by pointing the laser gun at him. It was to his surprise that the gun fired, killing Tom and giving him a huge hole in his chest. Amy made it clear that he still killed Tom, even if it was an accident. The player shipped Brad before the Honorable Dante. At the trial, Brad stated that he did not like Tom keeping all research files out of Brad's reach. Brad also had to state that the murder was an accident, and if Tom had told Brad not to play with the gun, he would have been able to go to Mars. Given that the murder was an accident, Judge Dante gave Brad an eight-year jail sentence with unannounced parole eligibility.
  • I'm the one who discovered the whole truth about the aliens, I'm the new Columbus, Marco Polo, Neil Armstrong! Make a statue of me, give me the Nobel prize!
    • Who: Pearl Montana
    • Source: "The Ties That Bind" [Case 100]
    • Note: Character reasoned that she was thankful for Colonel Spangler, who taught her the many aspects of archaeology. Upon Frank listing all the evidence they used, Pearl admitted that she killed Spangler. When she discovered the alien cave (which would be the greatest discovery of her life), Spangler told Pearl to keep her discoveries secret to keep civilians out. Pearl believed the Colonel wanted to take credit for the discovery. Pearl wanted to see him burn, so she caught Spangler by surprise, tied him up, and threw a homemade Molotov cocktail to off Spangler with an explosion. Pearl used the hippie festival that promoted using flames, so that she could have the team believe Ezra Hope landed the wallop. Frank heard enough, so the player shipped Pearl to court for a hearing. Judge Dante thought Pearl killed Spangler for crimes against fashion. She told the judge her real reason: if not for Spangler, she would be the one to be credited for her discovery of alien life on Earth. Pearl said that she should be written in the history books for her discoveries. Nevertheless, the murder of a US Army Colonel granted her a lifetime sentence in prison. Frank felt sad that Spangler would not be there anymore, but felt happy because even though Spangler obstructed justice at times, he died wanting to redeem himself.
  • It doesn't matter. My life doesn't count. But <Rank><Name>, promise me you'll go help Randolph! You HAVE to help him!
    • Who: Jarvis Donne
    • Source: "No Place Like Home" [Case 101]
    • Note: Character claimed that Amy and the player were making a false arrest when they approached him with evidence of his guilt. Under pressure from the two, Jarvis defended himself by telling Amy and the player that Randolph was alive in spite of the alien losing his human disguise due to him dissecting the most harmless person to death. All Jarvis wanted to do was to allow the real Randolph to get out of his human body so that he could return back to his planet Krep-9 as his true self. Jarvis helped Randolph get out of his human body, but due to the player's assumptions of murder, he instructed the alien to hide in the theme amusement park to ensure he sustained no further injuries. Jarvis pleaded with Amy and the player to believe his reason to free the real Randolph from his human shell, but Amy did not believe him, so she stepped aside to allow the player to ship the Area 61 surgeon to court. In court Jarvis stated before Judge Dante that neither Amy nor the player believed his story even though he actually only freed Randolph from his human shell. Judge Dante admitted to Jarvis that his alien teacher from planet Baguetron would not survive an autopsy as opposed to Randolph, but opted to side with Amy and the player as he gave the surgeon 10 years of hard time despite of the amount of defense Jarvis had to throw to justify such murder.
  • So I will LIVE? But I will not remember by CREATOR? I would rather you DISMANTLED me instead...
    • Who: Per-Sephone
    • Source: "Smart Money" [Case 102]
    • Note: Character claimed that she only helped people, not hurt them. Amy went down to business by telling Per-Sephone of the evidence they acquired. Per-Sephone said she wanted to grant her master's wish for weatlhy by using Ernest's standby button to "turn him off" and filling his circuits with money. After doing so, she was dumbfounded to see that he did not "turn on" again. As much as Amy found the arrest weird, she had to allow the player to ship the robot to Judge Dante for trial. Judge Dante felt that this was the weirdest indictment yet given that he had to sentence a machine rather than a human. Per-Sephone told Judge Dante that even though she was made out of metal unlike humans, she still knew how to love humans. Per-Sephone only wanted to be a learning machine, like Ernest wanted her to be. Judge Dante knew that the law was above everybody, even robots, and so he had to sentence the robot in one way or another. Since he could not afford to dismantle machines, he decided that Per-Sephone had to be turned off until her microchip, including but not limited to her programming, would be wiped clean so that she would not make the same mistakes again.

    • Who: Larry Newark
    • Source: "Uncivil Rights" [Case 103]
    • Note: Character was an unemployed mechanic. Mayor Arbor promised Larry a job to bail him out of unemployment, but her procrastination angered the mechanic, whose situation was getting worse off by the minute. At first trying to defend himself, he confessed that he killed Mayor Arbor. He hated the fact that Mayor Arbor planned to have robots become citizens, as the Robot Act would only force humans out of the job and to allow robots the benefit of a doubt. Larry joined the Anti-Robot League to plead with Mayor Arbor to stand down on her pro-robot endeavor politically but the ARL did practically nothing. He had to do something to ensure Mayor Arbor was not ruining the human lives: Larry grabbed a robotic arm, knocked Mayor Arbor down with it, fed the Mayor to the car crusher, and allowed the compactor to do the fatal job. Frank had enough, so he stepped aside to allow the player to ship the unemployed mechanic to face trial. Judge Dante was curious as to why Larry killed Annette, in which he proclaimed that humans could not kill other humans as all humans have reason. Judge Dante did not want to talk anymore, so originally he sentenced Larry to 25 years in prison, but increased it to 40 years at Larry's request upon hearing of the free job and free employment in prison.
  • Thirty years is nothing for true love! I... I know the other Ruth will wait for me... She has to!
    • Who: Nigel Campbell
    • Source: "Blood in the Blender" [Case 104]
    • Note: Character was a mentally-ill, yet psychotic husband to the victim, Ruth Campbell. Amy presented evidence as proof of Nigel performing the first-degree manslaughter to counter Nigel's claims of innocence. Nigel was a house husband and eventually wanted children, but he was fed up with Ruth's workaholic lifestyle not allowing him to spend time with his wife. Nigel thought Clone Ruth was more loyal than the real Ruth, so he sliced the real Ruth with a saw, and then shredded her using the blenders available in the juice bar. Amy had enough, so she allowed the player to ship Nigel to face Judge Dante. In the trial, Judge Dante was curious as to why Nigel had an affair with a clone of his wife. He argued that he did love his wife, but she was too busy with her work that she did not love him sufficiently anymore. When a clone of his wife presented herself, he took her as the closest thing he had to Ruth. He still committed domestic homicide despite his professed love for her, so Judge Dante sentenced him to 30 years in prison.
  • No, but it did make me see how much better I am than ugly old men like you!
    • Who: Greta Meduse
    • Source: "Immortal Sin" [Case 105]
    • Note: Character was in fact Teresa's mother. In spite of Greta saying she did not kill her daughter, Amy had enough evidence to bust Greta thanks to the player. Greta hated that Teresa did not share the secrets to her research on immortal youth with her own mother. Amy informed Greta about Teresa's terminal disease, which Yann Toussaint found out, and which prompted her to start her research in the first place. Greta never knew and felt that the terminal disease was something Teresa should not have hidden at all. The player had enough of Greta, so they shipped Greta to face Judge Dante. Judge Dante said the murder method was monstrous but Greta defended herself by telling the Judge that Teresa hid her terminal disease from her. Judge Dante felt Greta took punishment to unacceptable levels, and in spite of what Greta said, so he sentenced Greta to 20 years in jail.
  • I will control EVERYTHING!
    • Who: Aphro-Dyte
    • Source: "Programmed To Kill" [Case 106]
    • Note: Character was a robot created by Bob Levene until she become psychotic and ax-crazy. Initially, Aphro-Dyte denied hurting her human creator after Frank arrested her for the death of Bob. After Frank exposed the trail Aphro-Dyte left behind, she realized how intelligent the player was, which she felt was rare for humans. Aphro-Dyte had enough of robots being slaves to their human creators. With the indictment of Per-Sephone being the last straw, she was determined to organize the robots to rule Innovation Valley. With Clone Ruth turning DNA into binary code, Aphro-Dyte deployed millions of nanobots to reprogram humans into worshipping robots as their masters. Aphro-Dyte injected Bob with nanobots, but the bots saw him as an error and subsequently killed him. This assured her beliefs that robots will soon eradicate the humans to take over Innovation Valley, and ultimately, Pacific Bay. Frank did not care about what the robot said, and so arrested the robot in hopes of Judge Dante having to make her heal cybernetically infected humans through diplomacy. Judge Dante was smart to take note of Aphro-Dyte's use of nanobots to control helpless humans, but the robot countered by calling the judge weak and feeble. Furthermore, Aphro-Dyte told Judge Dante that robots deserved to replace humans as the dominant species, which were grounds for the Judge to indict Aphro-Dyte as if she was human. Judge Dante sentenced the robot to 50 years in jail for the death of Bob Levene, the infection of the population of Innovation Valley (including Amy Young), and her refusal to set things right. Aphro-Dyte turned herself off and compromised all electronics to escape her sentence, condemning Innovation Valley. Frank and the player had to do something to terminate the AI of the turned-off robot, which now lived in the Internet, before all was lost.

    • Who: Grace O'Brien
    • Source: "Killer Takes All" [Case 107]
    • Note: Character recalled the days when she and Alfie were once partners in crime, stealing jewelry from Pacific Bay's most expensive jewelry stores. After Grace was arrested, Alfie became a reformed croupier. Grace politely asked Alfie to rob the jewelry shop of the Mennagio Casino, but Alfie refused, not wanting to risk his career as a croupier. Grace tried to commit the robbery on her own, but Alfie attempted to stop Grace's jewelry heist by reporting her to the Paradise City authorities. Grace could not afford to let Alfie get underneath her skin, so to remove the double-crossing croupier, she played a game of poker or two at Alfie's section. During the game, Grace wrote a note on an empty plate of shrimp platter, asking Alfie to meet heroutside. Grace then saw Alfie outside the casino, knocked the reformed croupier off-balance and took his croupier stick away from him. Grace then slid the hilt violently on Alfie's left eye, killing him. The player's luck and investigative skills outsmarted her, so Grace was required to attend trial for her crimes. Grace tried to sweet-talk Judge Dante into playing a game of poker to avoid indictment in which the Judge abstained to gamble knowing how risky gambling is. He sentenced Grace to 20 years in jail for the murder of the reformed croupier, angering Grace. Frank felt that the player wanted to gamble following the indictment, although the player personally felt that they had more productive motives in Paradise City than to have fun.
  • No, no, I killed her on purpose, Your Honor! Killing is also a form of performance art! If <Rank><Name> hadn't stopped me, I could have shown you all!
    • Who: Mikey Bolero
    • Source: "Death at the Circus" [Case 108]
    • Note: Character felt compassion and believed Annie was his one and only soulmate. Amy and the player got through Mikey's lies, stating the evidence they gathered. He admitted to killing Annie because she wanted to head to Ivywood for a better career opportunity, giving up the circus life. The circus was all Mikey had, and despite all the poems and threats he used to convince Annie to stay in the circus, she still insisted on leaving. Amy was not convinced that the murder was for love or passion. Mikey then revealed he felt that Annie was being disloyal due to her plea to move to Ivywood. When he found Annie at the wax museum, he took her to the circus, strangled her with silk rope, and suspended her on display to send other acrobats a message: once they are in the circus, they are bound in the circus forever. Amy was sick and disgusted about Mikey's choice of murder, so the player shipped the disgraced acrobat to face trial. Mikey told Judge Dante that he killed Annie in the name of love, in which it gave the judge a feeling of distaste since all workplaces were supposed to treat individuals with respect and dignity. Mikey felt that the player should not have stuck their nose on this affair, but Judge Dante was fortunate for the player to be very persistent in their endeavor as he put the acrobat away for 30 years.

    • Who: Jeremy Bowman
    • Source: "Death By Martini" [Case 109]
    • Note: Character loved Stacy with all his heart and soul and firmly believed that she belonged to him, and no one else. He would go to the strip club to see Stacy all the time. He knew that he wanted her for the rest of his life the first time Stacy danced on the stage. Jeremy and Stacy always saw each other at the hotel he worked at. Stacy gave Jeremy a private dance, only to find out that Stacy was married to an affluent personality named Spencer Dickson behind his back. This infuriated the bellhop as he described the stripper as an illusion, heartbreaker, and a cheater. Jeremy was fed up with Stacy, so the next time he saw her at the strip club, he punctured her with a huge martini stick the moment he saw her dancing in the huge martini chalice. Once he succeeded on the hit, he placed Stacy in the liquid of the huge martini chalice. The player shipped Jeremy to face trial. Judge Dante wanted to know why Jeremy would turn a stripper into a human martini, in which Jeremy saw Stacy dance in the aforementioned chalice, feeling that Stacy was heartless and soulless in her dances judging that the stripper will do anything to trick men into falling for her. Stacy threw the giant martini stick out of the chalice, in which Jeremy used it as a murder weapon. Judge Dante promptly lost his appetite and opted to send the bellboy behind bars for the next 30 years.

    • Who: Sheikh Abdullah bin Faisal
    • Source: "Blood Diamond" [Case 110]
    • Note: Character was a false Sheikh. Initially claiming to have diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution on foreign soil, Amy and the player reminded the fake Sheikh that they had already known about his identity—even asking him to verify—before his arrest. Eventually, he revealed that he killed Merv for the diamonds the gun dealer had. The moment Papa Quansah landed in Paradise City, Faisal targeted him so that he could commence a gun smuggling operation for the Middle East, until Merv beat Faisal for the diamonds. Wanting the diamonds for his Sheikh persona, Faisal tortured Merv so that he would surrender the diamonds to him, but Merv was very protective of the diamonds. Amy felt that this would be of use in court, so the player shipped Faisal to face Judge Dante. Judge Dante wanted to know why Faisal was innocent of the finger cutting (per Roxie's report) that happened in the Mennagio Casino, but all Faisal wanted to know was where the diamonds were. Faisal placed a lot of hard work to ensure that his Sheikh persona benefited him financially and physically much to the chagrin of Merv beating Faisal for the diamonds. Judge Dante had heard enough, so he sentenced the faux Sheikh to 30 years in jail.

    • Who: Danny Moto
    • Source: "No Honor Among Thieves" [Case 111]
    • Note: Character realized that Louis was making empty promises, so Danny felt that he had to do something to grab the money and make Louis pay for his unwillingness to give Danny a hefty sum of the cut. Danny believed he deserved generous credit for his lockpicking skills. Danny rigged Louis's gas mask so that he would not leave the Mennagio alive. Sometime later, Danny stuck around for a bit until he confirmed Louis was dead, and then fled the crime scene with as much money as he needed. Frank felt that Danny was taking things to the edge, so he allowed the player to ship the underaged college student to face trial. Facing Judge Dante, Danny told the honorable judge that there's no honor among thieves, but the Judge cut the conversation short by issuing a 50-year jail sentence for Danny's involvement in the heist of the Mennagio Casino and the premeditated poisoning of Louis De Rico.
  • Karen?! What the... Let Andrea go! I'm guilty, you know I am!
    • Who: Frank Knight
    • Source: "A Killer Among Us" [Case 112]
    • Note: Character was stunned when the player accused him of homicide after what he and the player went through, but Amy snapped at the senior detective for treason. Frank did not plan the heist, but he cooperated with the heist squad by leaking information about the player's investigations. When the team arrived at Paradise City, Louis bribed Frank for information regarding the player's investigation of the Mennagio Casino heist in exchange for money. Louis felt the player was getting persistent, so he told Frank to get more information, or he would tell the player about his actions. Frank was relieved about Louis's death, but the instant Danny mentioned Frank that the sixth person was "someone you know well", Frank panicked. Frank stole a spike strip and a stun gun from the armory before escorting Danny to the police station for information regarding the sixth person. When Chief Marquez contacted Frank by radio, he had to fake the crash to prematurely end the communication. Frank took the opportunity to adjust the stun gun's voltage to electrocute Danny to death. He stated that the screams had haunted him ever since. Frank knocked himself out with his Gold Stag whiskey bottle to avoid suspicion. Amy told Frank that he framed his fellow team members to protect himself. Amy was disgusted by Frank's betrayal, so she and the player took the dirty cop for murder and conspiracy. Judge Dante told Frank that he was supposed to uphold the law, but instead chose to break it. When asked what he had to say, Frank admitted guilt, prompting a 40-year jail sentence (without parole) onto him, subsequently removing him from the Pacific Bay Police Force. Karen then arrived in the courtroom with Chief Marquez hostage, pointing a gun at Andrea's head, demanding Frank's release. Amy threatened to shoot Karen, but Andrea painstakingly ordered Amy and the player to let Frank go, believing that both Frank and Karen could be put to justice in a more favorable time to avoid a Pyrrhic victory. During the turbulent fiasco, Karen revealed herself to be the sixth person, the mastermind behind the plutonium theft at the Mennagio Casino.
  • Nobody can stop the progress of science! This isn't the end! Very soon, you'll all see what we've achieved!
    • Who: Jess Prakti
    • Source: "Into the Wastes" [Case 113]
    • Note: Character strictly believed that any slayings she committed were accidents, but Amy was not thrilled about the excuses Jess tried to throw to sweet-talk the junior officer out of incarceration. Jess had to bow before the player's investigative skills after she told the team that she had to kill David before he went ahead to slaughter the team responsible for the revival of Albert Tesla's mad experiments. Jess assisted Dr. Neuman on a machine to read minds, but when the mind reading report of David's mind populated, it terrified Jess as he intended to stop the experiments by slaughtering the involved scientists one-by-one until the experiments come to a halt. Jess felt that David was on a death wish to stop Tesla's mad experiments, something she could not allow. Jess spotted David at the district's entrance, then knocked him out cold with a baseball bat, and threw him at a puddle of liquid nuclear waste, exposing the entrepreneur to radiation, which eventually killed him. Jess was aghast when she found out Amy and the player were able to investigate murders in the Wastes given that no one was allowed in that district. Amy said, that for a more lenient sentence, Jess should tell her and the player about the whereabouts of Karen. Jess refused to cooperate, so the player shipped Jess to face Judge Dante. Judge Dante felt that Jess should have fired David instead of pushing David to a pool of liquid nuclear waste, but Jess countered that David's intention of manslaughter to stop a mad project would deny Meteor Systems a chance to save thousands of lives in Pacific Bay. The verdict was a 30-year jail sentence for the dirty scientist, but as the bailiff shipped Jess to prison, she made it clear that the progress of science was not something to be ignored.

    • Who: Enid Grimshaw
    • Source: "God Save the Prince" [Case 116]
    • Note: Character claimed that she had nothing to do with the murder, but Jack urged the chambermaid to confess to the crime. Enid loved the prince and refused to kill anyone, but she told Jack and the player that she was blackmailed into killing the prince. When Jack asked who blackmailed Enid, she said she could not out whoever made her do it as she had to obey the blackmail message without any questions asked. Enid told the prince, but he did not believe Enid, so she told him to meet her at Westminster. Enid then rang the phone to call Prince Albert at the Westminster phone booth. She argued that the murder was involuntary, as she never knew that the device she attached contained poisonous gas that killed the prince. Jack opted to hold Enid liable for the murder if she refused to out the party who gave Enid those orders, so the player sent the maid to trial at the International Court. Judge Adaku was not pleased about being forced out of retirement about the player's first arrest as a Bureau operations agent, but went ahead to ask Enid how she pleaded for the murder of Prince Albert. Enid pleaded guilty given the overwhelming evidence the player had against her. Judge Adaku realized that the punishment for executing a member of the Royal Family was execution, but he chose to sentence Enid to 10 years in jail for the manslaughter of the prince given that she did not mean to do it, but was forced.
  • 25 years?! Please have pity on this poor pensioner!
    • Who: Constantin Perrier
    • Source: "Off With Their Heads" [Case 117]
    • Note: Character hated Carmen's sudden accusation of homicide, but the journalist-turned-detective took time to snap at him with the player's findings during the murder investigation. Constantin tried to pin the murder at Grace Goude, in which she hated Ms. Sommeur's guts, but Carmen continued her brow-beating at Constantin for the homicide. Money was the key reason as to why Constantin beheaded Annette as he wanted to live his life like a royal instead of looking after historic properties for a living. The same organization that threatened Enid to kill Prince Albert previously or else offered Constantin a high sum of money if he was able to execute Annette and steal the manuscript for that organization's retrieval. Carmen wanted to know who the party offered Constantin money for blood, but Constantin refrained from saying a word relaying a suspicion Carmen has about an organization having manuscripts for benefit. Constantin only did it for money, and recalled nothing about the theft of the manuscript, but knowing an audit was necessary, Carmen opted to ship Constantin to Judge Adaku for the meantime. The last time Judge Adaku heard of guillotine use was 38 years ago before events of this game, but Constantin took advantage of the guillotine being in the Hall of Mirrors to execute Annette for money. Judge Adaku threw some Camus beliefs that "no cause justifies the deaths of innocent people", so with those words spoken, Judge Adaku sentenced Perrier to 25 years in jail.

    • Note: Character believed that true friends keep secrets locked within, but when Hans opted to tell Mayor Nagel the truth before Bierburg, he was not too thrilled about what Hans planned for Oktoberfest. Johan's secret was that his brother was murdered years before Hans became a famous movie star--to which Johan claimed he killed him by accident. Johan buried his brother in which Hans promised not to tell anyone albeit he lied in front of Johan. Johan had to silence Hans before he had a chance to spill it out at the Bierburg Oktoberfest. Carmen felt that no one should be afraid of such cruft Johan threw in, so the player shipped Schnee to Judge Adaku for trial. All Johan did was admit to Judge Adaku that Hans also wanted to out information leading to the arrest of the Promethians, but the cult would not allow it, so Johan obeyed the cult in which he did. Johan got 25 years in jail with no parole for homicide, but like the last case and the case before, an audit was necessary.

    • Who: Nikolaos Costas
    • Source: "Murder's Cheap" [Case 119]
    • Note: Character had firm and absolute beliefs that Metaxas should be held liable for Greece's financial disaster. He went far by assuming that Metaxas's irresponsibility would only breed bankruptcy and anarchy, so to financially stabilize Greece, he had to resort to murder. Nikolaos also believed that Metaxas was a weak leader due to the wanton financial woes Greece was currently experiencing, but Jack made one thing clear: kill, be caught by the Bureau, and get sent to Judge Adaku for trial. Judge Adaku recognized Greece's financial turmoil as he started the hearings, to which Nikolaos brought up the concept of a Unified Europe to stabilize Greece financially. Judge Adaku vehemently disagreed with what Costas said as his beliefs are less violent since he cared about the riots in the Netherlands―not to mention a murdered prince previously. In spite of Costas's defense, Judge Adaku opted to put the financial advisor away for 30 years. Jack was kind of confused after the verdict as there were some things he liked about Costas, although there were also some things he did not like about him. Unlike the previous cases in which the Promethians were involved, Costas did it for fiscal responsibility and strong leadership.
  • Do you think I care about prison? My mission is complete! What do I have to fear?
    • Who: Klaus Weissman
    • Source: "When Shadows Fall" [Case 120]
    • Note: Character had initially rebutted against the player's accusations, saying that Father Agnelli had changed his life. However, Carmen questioned the monk if taking off his Promethian necklace was not enough to discriminate him as the future pope’s killer, and she listed the pieces of evidence the player had gathered throughout the investigation. As a Promethian, Klaus claimed that the cult disagreed with Agnelli becoming the next pope, and thus regarded him as an obstacle in their path, since Agnelli was against the cause the cult adored the most―the unification of Europe. Klaus would rather prefer Cardinal Salieri to succeed the ailing pope as he had suited the cult’s needs much more than Agnelli would have, and he claimed that the Cardinal was a friend needed in the Vatican. Carmen had enough, and she sent Klaus to trial. Judge Adaku wanted more information on the Promethians's preference of Salieri as the next Pope and promised Klaus that his sentence would be more lenient if the latter cooperated. Klaus refused to talk about the cult’s master plan, so the court sentenced him to 25 years in prison.

Jack Archer and the player, disguised as Promethian cult members, addressed Archibald as their great leader, to which the latter responded with disgust due to him not being in costume. The banker had Papadakis lure Jacqueline to Park Güell in Barcelona with a postcard. When Jacqueline arrived, Archibald proceeded to ambush her and dragged her out to the countryside, after which he branded her with the word "traitor" written in Aramaic. As he saw Jacqueline as a traitor, he also felt that Prince Albert and Demetrios Metaxas should not have stood in the Promethians’ way, so thus he lit a fire under the bronze bull Jacqueline was placed in, burning her to death. Jack and the player then revealed themselves and took Archibald to trial. Judge Adaku told Archibald that he would be lenient in his sentence if the latter revealed where to find the detonator. However, Archibald refused, saying that he acted to get rid of the victim and would control Europe with an iron fist.

    • Note: Character was a foreign student. At first, Christy had denied killing Adam, but then, she confessed to committing his murder when Jack told her she was a main suspect in Chief Ripley’s murder. However, Christy told the team that she had only killed Adam, not the chief. She explained that she had heard of the dart and tried to lead the team to believe that both murders were a connection to the same killer. When asked why she killed Adam, Christy replied that Adam not only cheated on her, but he had also gotten drunk and told her he would remind her why they were good together when they dated. Christy refused to let her ex-boyfriend go through with that, and Adam left as if nothing had happened. Feeling sorry for the foreign student, Jack sent her to trial. Christy pleaded guilty for the murder of Adam, saying he deserved it; she had explained that Adam would have continued to get away with his actions due to his diplomatic immunity. As a violation in that manner is vile and would be duly punished, but also due to the trauma the student had experienced, Judge Adaku sentenced Christy to 10 years in prison.

Yasmine confessed to the murder as she told the team that she was angry of Anir running to them rather than helping her discard the evidence. Carmen questioned her thoughts as Yasmine had claimed that her tribe and Anir’s had feuded for generations, but Yasmine explained that in the olden days, the tribes had put aside their differences to defeat a common enemy. The nomad requested the player to take her to prison as she had lost her freedom a long time ago. Yasmine then explained to Judge Adaku that she and her people were against the refinery and the foreigners exploiting their land as well as destroying their traditions. The judge told Yasmine that hatred and murder were the oldest traditions in history and they were not worth saving, so he sentenced the nomad to 20 years in prison.

During the interview, Hamza showed the journalist the rifle, which the latter took to get a feel for it; however, Thomas lost the feel when he accidentally discharged the rifle. The journalist took Hamza's death as an advantage and had framed the Sultan in his news story. Carmen was disgusted that Thomas had used Hamza's death for his own purposes, and she shipped him to trial. Thomas pleaded guilty before Judge Adaku, but claimed to get "a killer story" out of it. The judge was shocked when the journalist turned it into a news story. However, he did believe that the murder was not premeditated and sentenced the journalist to 10 years in prison.

Denying the evidence at first, Zarah claimed that she simply wanted to catch the victim red-handed for stealing artifacts; however, Jack lambasted her by revealing that she had tracked the victim and lured him to the pyramid with a hookah pipe. When the elite force agent finished his summary of the evidence he and the player had collected, Zarah admitted to the crime, but she claimed that she had to do it because she had exposed herself as a thief. She continued to tell the player that no one knew what kinds of artifacts were in the tombs, and if she were to steal them, no one would miss them either, but Afif was always one step ahead of her in smuggling the artifacts. Zarah tried to bribe him with money to put her competence away, but Afif would not leave and clung to his fruit vending persona. With that said, Jack shipped Zarah to trial. Judge Adaku believed that Zarah had abused her power as the Minister of Antiquities to smuggle the artifacts out of the tomb. With the pleasure of locking up a corrupted government official, he sentenced Zarah to 50 years in prison for the attempted mummification and successful murder of Afif Wahab as well as for the theft of precious artifacts.

Fiona kept denying her actions of killing her husband until Jack pulled the trigger with the evidence of her using her husband's own gun to kill him and finding her earring back at the same place the weapon was. Fiona finally confessed to the murder, but claimed she did it because her husband had killed their son, Damien Cummings. Fiona explained that she was told the murder had been a drive-by at the wrong place and the wrong time. She had worked hard to rebuild her life due to how much the event destroyed her, but she found out the event was a lie a few months before. Fiona confessed that her son had actually been playing with Seamus's gun, only to accidentally shoot himself with the forbidden firearm and the latter covered it up. Jack was understanding of her situation, but told her that it did not justify murder and sent her to trial. During the trial, Judge Adaku initially asked Fiona how the golf course was when she murdered her husband rather than what she thought about her actions. Fiona was shocked when he asked her that question and asked him if he had no soul because of what she had been through. The judge reminded her of the saying "you live by the fire, you die by the fire", and sentenced her to 10 years in prison.

Dmitri claimed that he killed the notary not for his estate, but rather, for honor – the honor of protecting Duchess Anastasia. Dmitri explained that he could not contain himself when he found out that Mikhail tried to blackmail the duchess into marrying the notary because he loved her. While Dmitri claimed that Mikhail deserved that blow to the head and a lot more, Judge Adaku disagreed; the judge explained that while Mikhail was a paper-pusher that wielded the little power he had to ruin people's lives, he did not deserve to be killed. As a result, Dmitri was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

He had also returned the diamonds, which he took from Ilya, to communist hands in China. Ilya found out and confronted Nikita, prompting the latter to knock him out and hang him. Nikita then stopped the train because it was his job to report railway incidents, and also to hide the evidence in the ice cave. Rather than taking Nikita to the courthouse, Carmen video-called Judge Adaku and had the trial held by phone on the train. Nikita pleaded guilty for the murder, though he claimed his intentions were pure. The judge questioned him about how his actions were pure if blood was shed, and Nikita explained about how he was helping the Communist cause. Nikita also told the judge that in 1918, Lenin had told his citizens to hang "rich bloodsuckers", inspiring the ticket inspector to do so when Ilya confronted him. The judge explained that his ideological zeal did not change the fact that he killed a man and was forced to do a video-linked trial, and so he sentenced Nikita to 25 years in prison.

When Lawson threatened to have Maddie killed for her treachery, Charlie said that he was the sole person conspiring against Lawson in the Squad, further invoking Lawson's rage. After Lawson gave Diego one of Rose's guns, Charlie told him to shoot him and save his family. Much to his regret, Diego fired and killed Charlie, proving his worth to Lawson.
