For the case of the guilty swin.(#2)= Could a GS not say something like, "I deserve to be punished."?
If one were an innocent Swin, the statement would be false, and their innocence would be proven.
If one were a guilty swin, the statement would be false (who really thinks they deserve punishment?!) and would make people think they were innocent as well.
Hmm, I think that may work (assuming that this swindlecant really thinks his crime deserves no punishment and the court believes that even a swindlecant would believe that this crime deserves punishment). Very clever, judo_val!
