Parris runs away from the town and is never seen again. Do you mean Rev. Hale? He wants to free everyone because he knows that the trial and the court are completely corrupt and killing innocent people.

He wanted to free them because he's known all along that they were innocent. He allowed people to be accused and to die to protect his own place in the community.
