The truth is that Tom Robinson did not rape Mayella Ewell. It was Bob Ewell that had been abusing his daughter. Atticus wants the truth to be told despite the fact that they would probably loose the trial, because of racism, before it even begins.
our teacher actually has the exact same question on my assignment "When Link questions Atticus’s judgment for defending Tom Robinson, Atticus replies: “Link, that boy might go to the chair, but he’s not going till the truth’s told . . . . And you know what the truth is.” What is the truth? How might the reader understand this situation better than Scout?"
