Storyline

Follow-up to "Even Nice People" (#6.20). In the previous episode Ron Griff was killed in the act of setting fire to Lana Farren's house. Now Carl DeLissa turns himself in to the Sparta police to secure a plea bargain. He offers to give up all claim to Sparta assets in exchange for a suspended sentence, which the doddering old Judge Cully grants. Newly freed, DeLissa tries to extort money from the mob-related land developers for his silence, which proves to be a most dangerous game. Written by richardann
