    9.5
    A man of the cloth is accused of shoplifting and Rumpole is there for his defense. According to the vicar it is a mystery how three shirts got into his basket. Rumpole is eventually able to get him to admit that it was his sister who was with him at the time who did it, based on that fact she has done it before, but he won't take the stand. So Rumpole appeals to both jury and judge that the prosecution has not proved its case and the vicar is acquitted. Meanwhile George Forbisher and his bride to be have dinner with the Rumpoles. Horace recognizes the woman (and she him) from an old arson case for which he was the junior barrister in which she and her first husband were accused of setting fire to their hotel to collect on the insurance. George's application for a judgeship is granted and not wanting to be a burden to his career she leaves him.moreless
