I submit the following proposal, entitled "Default Punishment":
Dependency: BobTHJ's Proposal entitled "Fixing the Criminal Justice System"

At the end of Rule 4E54, add a paragraph that reads:
If the Priest fails to assign a punishment with an answer determining a
Player to be guilty of a Crime, the default punishement of m25 for a
Misdemeanor or m200 for a Felony shall be applied.

Note that this does not absolve the priest of criminal responsibility for
actually assigning a punishment, but provides a fallback mechanism for what
happens when a priest neglects to do so.
