Cast & Crew
William Newman, a notorious shyster lawyer, in return for a cut of the jewels, agrees to take the case of Morris, a man convicted of stealing diamonds. After gaining possession of the gems, Newman appropriates all of them and then refuses to carry out his share of the deal. Subsequently, Newman, who is attracted to Georgianna, a maid at his boardinghouse, frames the girl on charges of theft and then arranges for her freedom, thus appearing to be her saviour. He entices her to his room where Morris, now escaped from jail, is awaiting him and kills the lawyer. McHugh, a young newspaper reporter living next door hears the noise, captures the escaped convict and then rushes to his office to write the scoop. Learning that Georgianna has been accused of the crime, McHugh produces the real murderer, thus clearing the girl.
