The judges confer in whispers.

Then the judge in the middle says to you, "Obviously you know something of these matters. While you say you have truthfully professed your innocence, but we do not know whether to believe you or not without more evidence one way or the other. We are going to put you to the question. Take the accused to a cell."

The armed men take you by the arms and lead you out of the courtroom, through the courthouse, to stairs that lead down.
