the tenant be amerced, and the jurors, if they are present, be taken into custody, and  if absent arrested. If the twenty-four jurors speak variously and differently, provided  they agree in the principal matter, according as they speak for one party or  the other their verdict will be valid. 1<If the twelve were not in agreement in the  taking of the assise but in disagreement, the twenty-four may free some and convict  the others, as happened [in the case] of Albert in the county of Somerset.>2
What the punishment of those convicted is.
 The punishment of those convicted in the aforesaid assises will be this: first of all,  let them be arrested and cast into prison, and let all their lands and chattels be  seized into the king's hand until they are redeemed at the king's will, so that nothing  remains to them except their vacant tenements. They incur perpetual infamy and  lose the lex terrae, so that they will never afterwards by admitted to an oath, for  they will not henceforth be oathworthy,3 nor be received as witnesses, because it is  presumed that he who is once convicted of perjury will perjure himself again. Those  who swear saving the view, and were newly assumed at the taking of the assise, are  excused of the infamy (but not of the punishment of redemption) for such persons  may not unreasonably be ignorant of the truth, which is not so of those, chosen at  the beginning and summoned to make the recognition, who contemptuously refused  to make the view, for if that were allowed them they could profit by their  contempt, which ought not to be.4 They are to be dealt with more leniently, with  respect to the infamy but not the punishment of redemption,5 who, after the taking  of the assise, before conviction, seek, as persons deceived, to amend their verdict,  as among the pleas which follow the king in the twenty-first year of his reign, an  assise taken before Simon of Roppelay and his companions in the county of Lincoln,  [the case] of Lambert son of Lambert,6 as to which a jury of twenty-four to convict  twelve was summoned coram rege outside the county, and where, before conviction,  the jurors put themselves in the king's mercy, where they were heavily fined.7  Those may be treated more leniently than the jurors aforesaid, who voluntarily,  when misled by reasonable error, their consciences troubled by their oath, correct  their verdict and put themselves in the king's mercy without plaint or conviction.  When a jury of twenty-four is taken outside the county
