Flynch then submitted a photo of the crime scene, which showed that one of the crates had been broken, apparently by the pipe, and another crate had been forced open. Wright confronted Smiles, asking why he had not mentioned these in his testimony. The guard testified that he was not very good with the light controls, so the lights had been off save for an emergency light.
He also mentioned that he had his "trusty pocket torch", which was submitted as evidence, covered in his chocolate-covered fingerprints. Smiles continued, saying that he had seen Cantabella standing right in front of the crew member during the final blow. However, this contradicted the medical report, which stated that the victim had suffered a blow to the back of the head.

Wright asserted that the witness was unreliable, and that his client was innocent. That was when Smiles, unwilling to stand for this blemish to his long, six-month career, submitted his "secret weapon", which he had even hidden from the prosecution. After apprehending Cantabella, Smiles had confiscated a tag that she had apparently torn off of one of the PC Badger plushies.
At this point, Flynch reminded Wright that his client had pleaded guilty, but Wright replied that he had no intention of backing down. The judge declared a minute recess to set up Flynch's second witness.
Turnabout :: Consignor Center
During the recess, Wright and Fey found Darklaw reading the newspaper that Fey had been reading before. Darklaw saw them and told Wright that it was in Cantabella's best interests for the trial to be over quickly.
Wright kept this in mind going back into the trial, but was determined to save his client from false charges. The second witness was the victim, Olivia Aldente , who testified that she had discovered the defendant in the cargo hold at p. She described the fight that followed, and claimed that Cantabella had swung the pipe at her.
Flynch then submitted a photo showing the fingerprints on the pipe, which belonged to Cantabella. Wright looked at the photo and realized that the positioning of the fingerprints did not fit with the assumption that Cantabella had swung the pipe overhead. Aldente claimed that the defendant had held the pipe backhanded, but Wright found it hard to believe that Cantabella could hit someone taller than her on the back of the head, holding the pipe like that.
Wright asserted that Cantabella had, in fact, caught the pipe trying to defend herself from an assailant wearing gloves. Smiles could not have been the culprit, since he had left fingerprints on his flashlight. Therefore, Aldente, who wore gloves as part of her work outfit, was the assailant. Flynch insisted that Cantabella was guilty of attempted theft, regardless of Wright's argument.
Aldente testified that she had indeed wrestled one of the plushies back from Cantabella, ripping off one of its legs in the process, and had then given it to the police. However, when the toy was submitted as evidence, Wright noticed that the tag was still on it, a contradiction with Smiles's claim about the tag having been ripped off.
Wright asserted that Aldente had swapped the plushie that she had retrieved from Cantabella with the one with the missing leg. Aldente suggested that Smiles had lied about the tag, but all that was needed to verify its authenticity was to check it for the defendant's fingerprints. Wright then asked Flynch whether the police had found any plushie without a tag. Flynch admitted that the cargo hold had not been searched very thoroughly, so Wright requested another, more thorough search, asserting that perhaps the plushie in question was still hidden there.
Aldente suddenly panicked and demanded that they not go through with the search. It was then that Wright realized that the plushie had something very important inside: a jewel from the heist mentioned in the papers.
Indeed, a police search found the plushie and cut it open to find a jewel inside. Moreover, the tag indeed had Cantabella's fingerprints. Aldente had a breakdown and admitted that she was a member of the thieves who had hidden the jewels inside the plushies. Her job was to make sure these toys and their contents successfully made it out of London. Aldente did not know who had hit her, but it was evident that Cantabella was innocent. She was cleared of all charges while Flynch lost his glasses.
The Rite of Turnabout
Darklaw thanked Wright, saying that she would have asked for an acquittal if she had known that he could do it. Cantabella was holding a large book, and Fey tried to ask her about it, but Darklaw replied that she was shy and liked reading books.
