When Magwitch and Compeyson were caught forging signatures, Compeyson got off easily with only half the jail sentence that Magwitch received. The court appreciated Compeyson’s gentlemanly ways, and, thus, went easier on him. Compeyson and Magwitch hate each other and are forever fighting. Eventually Compeyson drowns after fighting Magwitch in the Thames. Whether Magwitch kills him remains a mystery. I think that, in the end, Magwitch was too nice a guy to kill him.
