About the TKAM court scence
Tom Robinson is accused of abusing and raping Mayella Ewell, and they are going to court.
Atticus Finch is representing Tom Robinson. Tom is black so they have a disadvantage because of racism.
Bob Ewell was the first to tell his story. He said he was out doing something then he heard his daughter screaming. He ran to her and saw Tom Robinson and Tom ran. He said that Mayella said Tom raped and abused her.
Mayella explains her story of what happened. It was that Tom came by their house and she asked him to lift something. He came in and she said he took advantage of her and hit her, and also abused her.
Tom also gave his story. It was that Mayella always asked him to do work/chores for him. One day she sent all the kids to the ice cream shop so her and Tom could be alone. She tried to kiss him and her dad saw so Tom ran.
Scout, Jem, and Dill were in the African-American section. They were the only whites in the section. The jury was very bias towards Tom because they were white. Atticus didn't until Mr.Underwood told him.
When everyone was done with their stories it was time for the verdict to be made. It took a long time for the jury to decide because of the bruise on her right side. The reason they were deciding was because they believed that Bob could have punched her(because he is a lefty).
