43. Kilo Chapter 43

George Shotton had given Jack paid leave from the pit until he sorted out his affairs. He also said if he could help in any other way that he would.
That night Jack spoke with Alan Bertram, he explained everything about Martha and the fact that Edward Rochdale had raped her when she was a house maid at Hartford Manor.
“Do you have proof of this?
“Yes a two year old at home Mr Bertram.”
 “No Mr Reamer; I mean witnesses to the rape in question.
“Martha never said.”
I see; now we have to establish that there was a relationship between Mr Edward Rochdale and Miss Martha Stephenson.
I know that he frequents The Cobblers Rest in the town centre. The lads at work are always talking how he gets drunk and abuses the girls who work there of an evening.
“Good I will take a walk down there myself; I observe him first hand, he does not know me yet but he knows you.”
“What are our chances then Mr Bertram?
 “Slim and certainly none at this moment in time sir but I have won cases in the past where the evidence seemed overwhelming against my client.”
“In court please let me address the judge and on no circumstances shout out or interrupt me or their council is that clear?
“We will discuss my fee at a later time so leave this with me and I will see you in court as they say.”
 Jack came home feeling lost, dejected, and hopeless.
“How did it go then darling said Kate softly.
“He couldn’t lie to both his wife and his mother so he told them the truth.
 “Alan Bertram thinks we have no chance as the evidence stands but he said he has won cases much worse than ours.”
Even with the rape said his mother? 
“Proof mother we need proof.”
