Storyline

A young Amish girl, Hannah Beiler, is attacked in the streets of Rome and raped, but the Amish community decide not to press charges against the rapist because of their religious beliefs of tolerance and being forbidden to swear oaths. An attempt is made to force Hannah to testify against her rapist but she refuses, on the grounds of her religious convictions. With no other options or evidence, Sheriff Brock has to let the rapist go free. Shortly after this, a second girl, Peggy Patterson, is also raped by the same man. This time, the guy is put behind bars but Peggy's parents, incensed that the Amish people's actions indirectly led to their daughter's rape, take the unusual step of suing the Amish. The Amish hire Wambaugh to defend them in court. Kenny tries to counsel Hannah, confiding in her that his sister was raped the year previous. Written by Anonymous
