Charmian is appalled and does not share her husband's view that he will get away with it and is proved right when he is arrested. Despite pleading not guilty he is sentenced to thirty years in prison. The house is beset by journalists and Charmian threatened by a gun-toting stranger demanding a cut of the spoils but rescued by Ruby Wright and her son Alan,friends of the fugitive Reynolds. However Charmian is disowned by her parents and now feels totally alone.
