Storyline

Tony Timson, a petty thief and former Rumpole client, asks for the barrister to defend him on charges that he was the wheel man in a high profile robbery that was out of his usual league. Not only does one of the thieves testify against him, he's at a loss to explain why some of the robbery loot was found in his washing machine. Meanwhile Rumpole plays one personality off the other in his chambers in order to get Fiona accepted as a member. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)
