Angela

The courtroom is a massive place. To me, it's even a holy place. It's my domain, where I spend far too much time but also not enough time. I hate the plea bargains. I really do. I want to nail the bastards and have them sent to jail for the rest of their lives. I know not everyone will agree with me, but I'm also for the death penalty. Some people will never change. They're rotten to the core, and I will not stand for that. I'll do my part to send each and every crook, rapist, and murderer behind bars.

How can I not? I was born for this. My parents had been gunned down by a drive-by shooting when I was ten. The police had some leads, but they couldn’t find enough evidence to earn a conviction. I got a job as a police officer just so I could work my way to getting my hands on their file, and I went after the guy. I couldn’t get the evidence I needed for him to be brought to trial for my parents’ murder, but I was able to get him and the others involved all in jail for thirty years a piece for other various crimes. Not for the rest of their lives, no, but it’s a start, and you can bet your ass that I will watch them once they get out, and I’ll nail them again if they so much as even think about committing another crime.

I’m a lawyer, a damn good one, and I play by the rules because I have to. It’s the only way to get them locked away. Cleaning up the streets is impossible. I’m not delusional, but that doesn’t mean I won’t celebrate each and every time I hear a guilty verdict and the sentencing. That’s the best part.

The courtroom is filled. I don’t glance behind me to look at the audience, but I know that a ton of those people are members of the Crimson Viper Soldiers mafia, just like the defendant, Carsten Bach. He’s a monster, a mobster, a low-life. As much as I hoped he would squeal on those higher up the food chain, he hadn’t, but from the showing of other Soldiers, it makes me wonder if Carsten is actually a bigger deal than I originally thought.

That’s all right. He had been found guilty on every single charge I filed against him, and now, the judge is going to sentence him.

“All rise,” the bailiff calls, and I’m the first one to my feet to show respect to the Honorable Yuri Sakane. She’s a tough but fair judge, one of my favorites. Not that I should have favorites, but some judges are more lenient than I would like.

The judge takes her seat and motions for us to sit, but she points a finger at Carsten. “You stand. Do you have anything you wish to say before we proceed?”

Carsten turns and eyes me. His eyes are chilling, and there’s something about his demeanor that is completely different from every other time I spent time with the man. I can definitely see him ordering Soldiers around now, whereas before I thought he was just a lackey.

“I cannot believe this travesty of injustice,” he says, slowly turning to face the judge again.

I feel as if I've been doused by ice-cold water. Carsten, no offense, talked a bit like an ignoramus before, but now, he's as smooth and elegant as a man could be. He sounds like a gentleman, actually.

Either he played me, played us all, or he spent the entire night being coached and coached well.

But who could have coached him? No one should have been given access to him.

Oh, hell, Angela, don’t be a fool. You’re dealing with mobsters who aren’t known for following the rules, now, are they?

“I am innocent—” Carsten continues, but the judge waves her hand.

“Spare us,” she snaps. “You were already found guilty.”

He opens his mouth, but she shakes her head.

“You’re done talking. It’s my turn now. You are a leech. You feed on the lives of others. You steal, and you cheat, and you act as if you are above the law. You and the rest of the Crimson Viper Soldiers need to learn that you are not allowed to do as you wish. There are laws, and they are meant for everyone to listen to and adhere to them. Them includes you all. To send a message to your fellow so-called Soldiers, I sentence you to thirty years."
