    Excerpt quoted from the after trail interview:
    “I ‘toad’ them I was innocent! Maybe next time They’ll think twice before hopping to conclusions!” – Dame Ekzeria

  3. Caren says:

    Some accounts dispute this version of events and insist that the judges were turned into frogs. Serves them right, too.

    The witches found the judges’ lack of faith disturbing.
