At school Scout gets into fights because classmates ridicule her father's legal efforts.After managing to avert a lynching, Atticus apparently proves Tom's innocence in court, but the jury returns a verdict of guilty. Atticus believes he can get the verdict reversed in a higher court but Tom attempts an escape and is killed. Farmer Ewell vows revenge on Atticus for his courtroom tactics.
