A good question, given the amount of evidence stacked against her, but James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) worked his magic, resulting in the head teacher being set free.
With Sally having been hospitalised following a hate crime, John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) was desperate to get her to safety, but he was understandably frosty with James, after the solicitor tipped the police off about Sally’s escape attempt.
However, it turns out the solicitor had a trick up his sleeve, and with that, he met with DS Cohen (Ariana Fraval), telling her that if she doesn’t assist him, then he will set about exposing the corruption in her department.
John Paul, meanwhile, told PC Smith (Callum Lill) all about James’ plan to have a top of the game forensic officer examine George Kiss’ (Callum Kerr) clothing in the hopes of proving that Sally’s DNA was added after the policeman was murdered.
Smith was horrified, knowing that such a thing would result in him being caught out for tampering with evidence, and therefore he set out to get rid of George’s clothes before the forensic expert arrived.
But little did the corrupt policeman know that it was all a set up!
Yes, as he attempted to dispose of George’s uniform, PC Smith was caught in the act by DS Cohen, James and John Paul.
Due to the level of police corruption involved in the case, the CPS had no choice but to throw it out, meaning that Sally was free to go home!
John Paul relayed the news to an emotional Sally, who broke down upon hearing that this nightmare, at last, was well and truly over.
And no, you’re crying!
