Episode guide
Nowhere to Run
When the local magistrate comes to town for the day, the Heelers are less than enthusiastic about spending their time in court. None more so than Maggie who's got butterflies in anticipation of her first day in court. Chris, a key witness to a crime, decides not to testify after the suspect's wife tells her a sob story, child in hand, prior to the trial. The Heelers force Chris to testify by subpoenaing her but her vague testimony results in an acquittal. The bigger fallout is the hit to her relationship with PJ. Also, a negligent horse owner is prosecuted and an elderly driver loses her license, but gains a chauffeur.
