Cast & Crew
The proceedings of Judge Fawcett are interrupted by the arrival of a pair of newlyweds, arguing over circumstantial evidence that shows the husband unfaithful, as he has a woman's picture in his pocket. The judge is moved to recall a story that happened to him, in order to demonstrate the uncertainty of crediting circumstantial evidence. When Fawcett was a police judge, duty prompted him to follow Milton Robin and his mistress to the Gargle Inn. Fawcett arrived with Mrs. Robin and her brother. At the inn, shady things happened, ending in a raid. In the excitement, Fawcett was photographed by blackmailers in incriminating circumstances, into which, in innocence, he had been led by the mistress and her cohorts. The result of this is that as a judge, he is forced to withdraw any charges against the guilty husband. As the story returns to the present, the newlyweds, having listened to Judge Fawcett's tale, become reconciled.
