Storyline

Sherriff Barnes arrives at a cabin looking for Meredith who he arrests for the murder of Judge Scoville. The Lone Ranger hears Meredith may be lynched. Later the Ranger with Tonto, head for town to keep an eye on the jail and interview Meredith. The Ranger speaks to the sheriff who brushes off his concerns. As night falls the town's folk begin organizing the lynching. Again the Ranger steps in and talks them out of it. Meanwhile Ted Latham confronts his father, without the lynching, there's a chance Ted's involvement will be revealed. His father sends him out of town for a week as cover. The Ranger follows Ted, explaining he'd heard the conversation with Ted's father. This forces Ted to confess the murder. Arriving back in town, Ted complains that the Ranger attacked him and was forced to give a false confession. Unsure of the situation, the sheriff arrests Ted. Finally Meredith is cleared by the sheriff when he discovers the bullets in the judge's body match Ted's and not Meredith's ... Written by glen_chapman <chapman_glen@yahoo.com>
