The Good Samaritan

When a church volunteer saves a woman from being raped, he doesn't want any publicity. After his picture is published in the newspaper, the volunteer is arrested for an accidental killing 30 years ago. Reggie defends the admittedly guilty man against Roy's prosecution. The jury declares him guilty but, in view of the volunteer's exemplary life ever since the incident, the judge orders him to perform community service--exactly what he has been doing. Meanwhile, Clint's mother dies. Without her help paying for his law studies, Clint cannot afford to stay in school on the salary Reggie pays him. He plans to leave school temporarily and work a second job to save money. Reggie anonymously donates money to the law school as a scholarship for Clint so he can stay in school. To afford that, she has to sell her car.
