Fourteenth Amendment

"You're wanted..."

"Was," says Faith. "I'm officially dead."

"Until the police find your fingerprints. Planning to spend your life running?"

"A couple more weeks."

"What happens then?"

"The California Supreme Court reviews my trial. Something about Due Process."

"Then what?"

"My lawyers say I should turn myself in, probably get a suspended sentence for breaking out."

"And if they're wrong?"

"I do the time."

Oz climbs back to the roof with the crossbow bolts, says "Are we done?"

"I think so," says Batman.

"Great," says Faith. "See you around."

"If you don't turn yourself in you can count on it."

Comments please - this is a lot better than my first draft of this segment, but I think it could stand comments from anyone who knows more about the US legal system than I do.
