If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners. By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well.

The people strongly believed that Dimmesdale would confess his sins; they trusted him and thought he would never keep something from them. Dimmesdale only made the situation worse. By not telling them, they would lose their trust in him. Eventually, someone would find out, and his faithful congregation would stop attending his services since he had lost their trust.

"Tha ' man 's gone and raped my Mayella and s 'only right that he face the 'lectric chair for what he 's done!" He alleges to have seen the attack on his 19 year old daughter, Miss Mayella Ewell. The trial consisted of Mr. Finch and Mr. Gilmer 's examinations of the witnesses, which included the local sheriff, Mr. Heck Tate, Mr. Ewell, Miss Ewell, and Mr. Robinson himself.

In addition, Atticus went against his moral code and principles he had always upheld before, especially in the Tom Robinson trial. Now, Atticus is faced with the decision of abiding by the law or breaking it in order to do the right thing. He knew that incarcerating a man, as withdrawn and solitary as Arthur would have been unforgivable. Especially, after Arthur had performed a great deed by saving his children 's life. He knew that exposing him would be an awful way of repaying him; it would have been like "shooting a mockingbird."
. . then somebody yanked Mr. Ewell down.’ ” (pg. 270) Mr. Ewell meant business in this section of the book, he tried to kill Jem and Scout or severely injure them. This just shows that Bob was trying to get back at Atticus for trying to defend a black man against him and his daughter in court.
The two books I read was And Then There Were None (ATTWN) and Confessions: The Private School Murders. ATTWN, the first book, was about these 10 people who were invited to this island, some of them for a job and some were invited just to hangout and have fun. One by one they start being killed and they try to figure out who is the murderer. The second book I read, Confessions: The Private School Murders, was about this young girl, Tandy, and her two brothers. Their older brother is on trial for murdering his girlfriend and their unborn baby, the girl is figuring things out about her past and her long lost lover, and there are private school girls getting killed right where she lives and she is trying to figure out all of these answers.
