Lady Sarah Steps In
At the Old Bailey, Judge Buller sits on the bench listening as Constable Yardley gives evidence against Annie Christie, she's accused of theft. Garrow reads a newspaper, only half-listening. Silvester asks if there were any other things found after the Constable's search.
The Constable holds up a key and reveals it opens the Prosecutor's door. Annie looks defeated. Garrow jumps to her defence, he can act as "amicus curiae" or "friend of the court". The Constable maintains the Prosecutor's key was "eaten up with rust".
Garrow argues there is no reliable evidence to whom it belonged to or what door it opened. The jury is unsympathetic to Annie but she’s saved by Lady Sarah who declares that she will speak on her behalf. Garrow is very pleased to see her.
