Tom Robinson

Black Man Accused Of Rapping A White Women

Shocking Moment For The Town Of Maycomb

In the old town of Maycomb Tom Robinson is being accused of rapping Mayella Ewell the daughter of Bob Ewell. Atticus Finch is the lawyer that is defending Tom Robinson. Even though the victim Mayella Ewell has testified agains Tom saying that he raped her, Atticus still thinks that Tom is innocent because both of Bob and Mayella Ewells story doesn't make sence because Atticus know that the person that raped her and beat her up was someone left handed and Tom Robinson is right handed. Tom Robinson couldn't raped Mayella because he can't move his left hand, he got it caught in a cotton mill when he was 12. This was a shocking moment for the whole town.
