She says she invited Tom in and wanted to pay him to fix a dresser. Her claim is that once he came inside, instead of fixing the dresser he took advantage of her. Although she obviously lies, and Atticus can prove that she lies, she refuses to change her story and finally shuts down and refuses to answer any more questions.
