Then the man of the hour walks in. In an orange jumpsuit and handcuffed, officers escort Victor Newman to his seat. Everyone stares at him; Victor keeps a straight face and looks ahead not making any eye contact with anyone. He takes his seat.
Avery: Victor, there was a last minute switch with the judge.
Victor: What do you mean? I was counting on Judge Hollingsworth. He owes me a favor. When did this come about?
Leslie: He called in sick last night.
Victor: Well who is the damn judge now?
Rafe: A visiting Judge. Judge Greg Mathis.
Victor is stunned.
At the Cemetery. Nate is visiting his father’s tombstone. He has tears in his eyes. He talks to the tombstone, making it take the pace of his dad.
“I messed up. I really messed up. Sophia is dead. I was an accomplice in the death of Sophia all because I was stupid. Stupid switching Moses paternity results. If it wasn’t for that, the mystery woman would have never been able to black mail me. Dad what am I going to do?” Nate falls to his knees and weeps.
“I’m so sorry! God I’m so sorry!” He hollers out. He feels a touch behind him, he turns around and sees Roxanne.
Roxanne: I heard everything. I know what you did. You switched Moses paternity results to make Neil look like the father and not Malcolm.
Nate, standing up: Roxanne I didn’t mean too!. You have to believe me!” Nate is so upset he holds her without even thinking. Roxanne holds him back feeling bad that Nate is so torn up and that he is in this position.
The Courthouse. The bailiff announces to all “ All Rise” As judge Mathis enters the courtroom. He looks over the case dockets and says “Wow”
Judge: Will the defendant please rise.
Judge: Victor Christian Newman you are being charged with one count of kidnapping , one count of blackmail, aiding and abetting a criminal, 3 counts of obstruction of justice, a count of tampering with evidence, and two counts of murder in the 2nd degree and it looks like you framed some one for murder. Man where do you have time to do all this stuff. This is crazy. How do you plea sir?”
The courtroom awaits Victor’s plea…..
Victor: Your honor, I plead not guilty!” The court room is outraged!
