    Rumpole finds himself as the junior part of a defense team (much to his chagrin) whose client is a safe cracker. When his "senior partner" comes down with the flu, Rumpole takes the reins with the help of a rookie newspaper reporter who has dug up some dirt on the arresting officer. Rumpole tries to get the officer (while on the stand) to fess up but without sucess. Rumpole finds himself on the brink of a disciplinary hearing before the Senate when the reporter gets a taped conversation between the informant and the officer who is then suspended and the safecracker. who had been found guilty, gets an appeal trial.moreless
