Tommy was taken to the court for his hearing. His attorney showed up late and haven’t properly introduce himself prior to court. The lawyer also said that his case is cut dry and all the evidence against him is pretty strong. During the hearing, the judge asked how Tommy plead, and with all the evidences against him, lawyer suggest to plead guilty and beg for mercy. Since this is Purge related crime, it’s considered class R crime. Judge declared Tommy guilty and sentence Death that will be administrated at the next purge. My question is why wait until the next purge? NFFA really dominate the law around the purge for sure.
