Storyline

Judge Garth and others believe Curt Wesley was improperly tried and convicted for a robbery for which he has been in prison two years. Garth goes directly to the Governor for a new trial but no relief is available until another train robber confesses to the crime and location of some of the money as he dies. Curt is given parole instead of a pardon due to doubts about him letting him return to his wife at Medicine Bow. A security agent, Charles Sanders, and his assistant Kip Lathrop still believe Curt is guilty and has the rest of the money. Sanders believes he has an instinct to tell who is guilty and who isn't telling him he shouldn't trust Ryker as well. Sanders warns Curt and his wife Joan that in time Curt will return to prison. Curt is framed for another robbery and it is up to Ryker to determine how and who framed him along with why. This results in a revelation for the hard-nosed Sanders. Written by Anonymous
