Storyline

A cocaine transporter who is traveling through Sparta ends up in a hit and run accident with Detective Virgil Tibbs' neighbor Kevin Dawson. Afterwards, the driver of the truck Troy Caldwell shows no remorse at all for hitting the boy. Chief Gillespie thinks he has a solid case against Caldwell that will send him to prison for a long time until FBI Agent Richard Donnelly comes from Jackson to offer Troy Caldwell full immunity from all charges in exchange for his complete testimony against the New Orleans drug lord who is behind the cocaine distribution. Troy Caldwell ends up accepting the FBI deal and walks out of the Sparta jail a free man. Duwayne Dawson, who is the father of Kevin, refuses to allow this to happen. Written by mts77
