Pheonix Wright 2262
Guard: Objection!
Judge: What? What is it Sir?
Guard: our previous witness just realized she saw another pony on the scene with her bag.
*Pheonix smirks*
*trixies angry*
Objection!
Pheonix: Who is this pony
Guard: She saw some unicorn with dark grey fur and a short brown mane and tail carrying that stick.
* trixies hat flies off*
Pheonix: Your honor I think I know who this unknow pony with the stick is.
Pheonix: (thinks) yes! The evidence is right here!
Pheonix: your honor I would like to bring this pony into the court.
Judge: I would but no pony knows her
Pheonix: She is Sonota, Ace Swifts manager.
Twilight: Where is she from, I've never heard of her.
Pheonix: That's because she travels around with Ace and she's not from around here.
Pheonix: Your honor would you bring miss Sonota in here?
Trixie: Well the great and powerful Trixie needs a verdict!
Phoenix slams hands down
Phoenix: Your honor! It wouldn't be right to hand down a verdict before all suspects have been cross examined!
Judge nods
Judge: I will have to agree with the defense so Trixie any further argument will be punished
Trixie hat flies off
Guard: Wait!
Trixie: what is it now?
Guard: Miss Gilda Just realized that she saw that Sonota pony carrying that stick!
Trixie looks shocked
Phoenix grins like an idiot
Phoenix: Could you bring Gilda back in here your honor?
Guard: I'm sorry but she is refusing to renter.
Phoenix: could you tell us everything she remembered about Sonota
Guard: She doesn't want to renter in fear she might destroy the porcupine man
Phoenix: thinks) Alright that one hurt.
Judge: Would you mind just transferring our questions and answers?
Guard: that would be best
Guard dissappears for 5 seconds and reapers
Phoenix: was she doing anything strange?
Guard whispers
Guard: she was holding it with her mouth which was strange considering she was a unicorn.
Phoenix: where was she heading?
Guard dissapears
Different guard appear
Guard 2: HOLD IT! We scanned the bags for prints and we dscovered hoof prints that matched Sonota's!
Murmuring crowd
Phoenix: the only explanation is that Sonota found the bag and hid it in the bush or she stole it!
Trixie: but that's impossible! how wouldn't our two previous witnesses find her in the forest! I mean really wouldn't Fluttershy have sawn her!
Twilight dings
Phoenix: what is it?
Twilight: it's nothing
Fluttershy pushes guard
Fluttershy: HOLD IT! i-if you don't mind
Judge: Young lady what is the meaning of this
Fluttershy: I just remembered seeing a pony in the corner of my eye
Phoenix: was she dark colored unicorn?
Fluttershy: exactly but she was holding it in her mouth
Phoenix: But if it was dark, how were you able to identify her horn?
Fluttershy dings
Fluttershy: oo the light reflected off her glasses! That's how I was able to identify that stick and her horn! But I'm sorry I wasn't able to see her cutiemark
Phoenix: That proves it was Sonota who moved the stick! We have to bring her in here!
BOOM
Dun Dun Dun
Applebloom: Wait! I just remembered about that...Thing I bumped into!
Trixies hat flies off
Phoenix: (thinks) Yes! I'm winning!
Applebloom: It was like a colt. I could tell because of his size. I could also feel its wings so I think it was a Pegasus.
Phoenix: But the only colt in there was the victim do you remember his colors?
Applebloom: well oh! He was a bright color of like yellow or bright blue
Trixie's hat flies off
Phoenix looks shocked
Judge looks shocked
Twilight looks shocked
Judge: My word are you saying that you bumped into the victim?
Applebloom: aparently I am all I could remember is what I told you now and in my Test in corny
Phoenix: you mean testimony?
Applebloom: hey!
Judge: Mr Wright!
Phoenix: Sorry Applebloom
Applebloom: That's fine!
Phoenix: Applebloom would you mind repeating your testimony?
Applebloom: Sure!
I went to zecoras to help her brew some stuff
After we were all done I walked home along the pathway
Just then I heard a lightning bolt it was...8:40 after the lightning scared Me I ran off the path and into the forest
All of a sudden I bumped into something
It was the victim that Ace Swift pony
Then I found my way out of the forest and went on home
Trixie: witness? How come you didn't realize this earlier?
Applebloom sad
Judge: Miss Trixie !
Phoenix thinks: Finally the judge chewing out Trixie for a change!
Applebloom: Can I go home to my sister now?
Judge: Yes go home and do some more crusading
Applebloom: YAY CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS LIFE SAVERS
Phoenix: are we allowed to bring in his body
Judge: Only the defendant or defendants are allowed. No others are entering.
Twilight and Phoenix enter room with a coffin
Phoenix: Aha I found something!
Phoenix: have you tampered with the body
Guard shakes head
Flash back into court
Pheonix: Your Honor! Bring Sonota in here!
Judge: Alright but Mr Wright your client is treading on thin ice
Sonota appears in podium
Sonota: We meet again wright
Phoenix: I am sorry for dragging you here but you were spotted on the scene by three different witnesses
Sonota: The reason I was there was because I took the anonymous tip seriously unlike the police
Phoenix slams his hands on desk
Phoenix: I don't believe you!
Sonota: I also saw Gilda and Dashie here
Phoenix: How could you see them it was pitch black in there!
Sonota: Well the lightning helped. And I used my horn which could be what blinded that little filly. I actually pushed that filly out of the forest.
Phoenix: I know that's a a lie because Applebloom would have felt you push her out.
Sonota: well I was the thing she bumped into
Phoenix: Ha! Don't make me laugh! She bumped into something bright colored which was ace swift!
Sonata gasps
Sonata: Well Phoenix that's one of the few smart things you've done. But your hair is working against you.
Phoenix: Actually you did not create that flash with your horn because then it would have emitted a different colored flash I could tell because when Twilight levitated and illuminated it was a pinkish color!
Pheonix: also did you take anything from the scene of the crime
Sonata: no. I touched the body of my beloved client but that's it.
Phoenix: LIAR! Fluttershy and Gilda found you carrying this stick!
Sonata: well that's my stick I just brought it home with me.
Phoenix: Another Lie! This is Pinkie Pie's stick and she's too delusional to lie.
Sonata: umm I...I..I
Pheonix: You couldn't stand your secret business with him so you decided to destroy him
Sonata: how did I do that exactly and why would he still be alive
Phoenix: Well after the lightning threw him a few yards little Applebloom bumped into him then you caught the second bolt with the stick and jabbed it at the victims neck.
Sonata: What proof of this do you have?
Phoenix: Well I found a charred piece of metal which fits right on the end of this stick! Also on the victims burnt portion on his neck there was a round spot the size of the end of this stick!
Sonata: Well your pretty good for a rookie you've almost got it.
Judge: Miss Sonata would you mind revealing what happened
Sonata: First I want Pointy head there to try to solve this case if he can't solve it I will reveal a vital piece of information
Phoenix thinks: She means the break in.
Judge: Oooo it's getting exciting! I... I mean Order! This is new but I will allow this to take place
Phoenix: Sonata could you state a testimony
Sonata: alright
Testimony
Sonata: I was done with Ace Swift's business and was on my way to leave when I saw Cruise Control heading to the station so I went to investigate. I heard heard him give the tip about trouble in the everfree forest so I left and charged to the forest. I saw Ace sitting there talking with Crash over there. I snuck in and saw griffon girl hiding in the tree ace noticed her spying so he said this is to be finished soon. Dash flew up, hit the cloud, and flew off. I promise that the first bolt did not kill ace. It stunned him but not enough to kill him. That's why he was still breathing. Dash is innocent. Now this is where I want this man to figure out.
Judge: Could you consider it a cross examination?
Cross Examination
Sonata: I was done with Ace Swift's business and was about to leave
HOLD IT
Trixie: What kind of business?
Sonata: Racing
Trixie: Why would you be leaving from that
Sonata: I'll let Pourcupine answer that if he wants
Phoenix thinks: She's talking about the blackmailing
Phoenix: I'd rather not say
Trixie: What?
Judge: Miss Sonata please tell us what it is instead of dragging Mr. Wright into this
Sonata: Smart Okay Ace Swift saw that the other racers in any race were better than him so he blackmailed the other racers which is why they were in the forest for privacy. And that's also why there were those pictures of rainbow. Also that's why Cruise Control never won because his sister needed intense care after a crash and the only place that could save her was the expensive Canterlot Medical Facility and so Ace pulled some strings in return for Cruise losing. He could right away get her out of there
Phoenix: that gives any racer a motive!
Phoenix: The second bolt! It hit the stick and Cruise took the stick and threw it at Ace!
Sonata: Close Cruise does have something to do with it
Phoenix thinks: The piece of metal!
Phoenix: Sonata do you recognize this!
Phoenix Holds up burnt piece of metal
Sonata cries
Sonata: Sniff* w-where did you find that?
Phoenix: Next to the real position of the body I'm guessing that the portion on the victims neck is really just smeared dirt and there really was blood Guard could you ask Gilda if there was any blood on the body before she moved
Sonata: There was not. you are on the nose mr wright But may I just tell you what happened
Judge: I believe that would be best
Phoenix: Wait but why did you touch her bag?
Sonata: So I could mourn over my loss DUH!
HOLD IT!
Phoenix sweats
Judge: What in the blazes is going on here?
Layton: Old chums I'm sorry for the outburst but I have information!
Trixie: You weren't supposed to be seen! Now I will have to be here explaining your presence!
Judge: Miss Trixie! What is the meaning of this!
Trixie: The defense will...
Phoenix: Never Again! Your turn!
Trixie: The truth is... I don't know him!
Phoenix: Lie. Too easy!
Sonata: I have to agree with him
Phoenix: You just said you will have to explain him because you know him!
Judge: Well since you discovered something please share it mr...
Layton: Layton, Professor Layton
Judge: Please share
Layton: This is something every detective missed, someone spiked his food!
Judge: You mean he was poisoned?
Layton nods
Phoenix: Sonata!
Sonata looks shocked
Phoenix: You have some explaining to do!
Sonata: why me? Why not Cruise?
Phoenix: we already narrowed it down to either you or cruise control right?
Sonata nods
Twilight: Phoenix what are you doing
Phoenix: trust me
Phoenix: Well you would be the only one accessible to his food and he only makes his own before a race for this exact reason!
Sonata: How did you know that?
Phoenix: I didn't until you just admitted it
Sonata looks angry
Trixie's hat flies off
Twilight: Nice one!
Phoenix thinks:Rainbow Dash you're almost free!
Twilight: What were you doing when I bumped into you going to Sugar Cube Corner
Sonata: Umm...I...I
Judge: Miss Dash your free too
OBJECTION!
Trixie: she's guilty!
Judge: You heard Sonata the bolts didn't touch him and Layton confirmed that too Objection overruled
Trixie looks shocked
Judge: I proclaim that Rainbow Dash to be free of guilt and free to leave
Judge: But mr wright would you mind helping us investigate the real culprit
Phoenix: As long as my client is in the clear, Why not?
Twilight: Your honor may I speak to Cruise Control?
Judge: He is refusing to speak with anyone
Twilight: Tell him it's twilight!
Murmurs from the crowd
Judge: Oh My! He aggreed as long as its only you
Twilight leaves
Twilights perspective
Twilight: Guards can you leave us
Guards leave
Twilight: Can you answer my last question
Cruise: What was it
Twilight: did you do it
Cruise: Yes
Twilight thinks: No syco locks! He did it
Twilight: Well could you tell me how
Cruise: if you guess 3 times and are wrong I will
Twilight: You blackmailed Sonata to poison his food
Cruise: Y-yes but how?
Twilight: Well first you just aggreed to doing it
Twilight: Second Sonata cared for ace so she wouldn't poison him from only guilt
Twilight: Third, She wouldn't greive over someone she killed
Cruise: but why did she move the stick then.
Twilight: do you know?
Cruise: Yes
Twilight: could you just tell me this time
Cruise: sure, she did it because... She was mad at me so she chucked it and it caught the second bolt, but she missed and hit Ace's neck which is the burnt portion on his neck a little bit of charred "golf club" fell off. Just after I flew off. But Sonata stayed and threw the stick into the lake
Twilight: But how come none of the witnesses saw you?
Cruise: I don't know. I was hiding in the bush where that griffon's bag fell I don't know how no one noticed me
Twilight: Were you camouflaged at all. I mean with your dark colors
Cruise: probably
Twilight: Something still doesn't make sense
Cruise: hmmm?
Twilight: Why was Sonata going to Sugar Cube Corner?
Cruise: It was our meeting place
Twilight: I'll be sure to keep your sister in there but you will probably only be arrested
Cruise: I'd do anything for my sister
Twilight leaves
Twilight: Anything happen
Phoenix: no it was just an awkward silence
Twilight: Your honor Cruise Controll just told me he did it
Judge: But Sonata was the one who poisoned him.
Twilight: But Cruise Control blackmailed Sonata
Judge: how?
Twilight: He threatend to go to the police and turn them in for blackmail
Sonata: Yes but his sister. I could've broughten her out of there to
Judge: What
Twilight: Cruise Control has a sister and she got into a crash near Canterlot and ace got here into urgent care but ace threatened to pull her out unless he lost the equestrian 500
Judge: For that Cruise Control will get only imprisonment on the moon for around 7 months
Twilight: Thank you!
Judge: But he will be needed in the trial
Guard: He is refusing to enter and have twilight answer
Judge: Miss Twilight could you go to the podium to answer his questions?
Twilight: Alright
Twilight goes up to the podium
Twilight: Um I can't really do a testimony
Judge: Then let's just do the cross examination
Cross Examination
Phoenix: Why was Sonata heading to Sugar Cube Corner l
Twilight: The meeting place
Trixie: What happened at the scene!
Twilight: You don't have to yell
Twi: so he hid in the bush where Gilda's bag dropped then once Rainbow left he went out of the bush and sonata threw the stick at cruise and he ducked. But the second bolt caught it and hit the victim in the neck but a little fell off then she moved the stick into the lake in case it was suspected that it was a weapon
Judge: So we punish Cruise Control? He will be sentenced to 7 months in prison but his sister will remain in the care unit until she is nursed enough to be transferred to a lower class facility and now this court session is adjourned
Court clears
Trixie: I'll get my revenge some other way mark my words Twilight Sparkle!
