Chapter 17 - Tom's Trial
Answers 1Add Yours
Atticus basically factually dismisses all the prosecution's claims. These include:
-Tom's lame left hand compared with the angle and severity of Mayella's wounds.
-The evidence was only hearsay.
-Bob didn't call for a doctor.
-Mayella's very stilted and conflicting testimony.
-It is not lost on anyone where so many children belonging to Bob might have come from. (yuck!)
