Airing Monday, 19th January 2004 at 19:00 on ITV1

All eyes are on Charity as she prepares to meet her fate in court. Several witnesses are called to be questioned on the first day of the trial. Charity and Debbie are on tenterhooks as Cain is called to the stand. Having originally made a statement condemning his cousin, Cain shocks the court by protesting her innocence, backing up Charity’s story that Chris killed himself.

The prosecution attempts to silence Cain, insisting he most only answer questions, but gallant Cain refuses to back down. He taunts the judge before being dragged from court sentenced to 30 days in jail for contempt.

From YTV EMMERDALE Monday 19 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Cain (JEFF HORDLEY) finds himself in a cell with Charity (EMMA ATKINS) when he tries to protest her innocence.

Zak jumps to his feet to applaud his son, beaming with pride, while Debbie is smiling through her tears. Does Charity have a stab at freedom after all?

Worried that the case is taking a sudden turn, Zoe panics that Charity may get off after all. Loyal for his daughter’s sake, Scott tries to reassure his boss that everything is going to be all right.

Meanwhile, deep in grief, Marlon is unable to sleep. Not even looking after the puppy takes his mind off things. Nostalgic, he takes the dog for a walk in the village but finds himself drawn towards places that remind him of Tricia.

He stumbles across Bernice at the Woolpack. The place is still littered with debris from the storm. Saddened by the sight before their eyes, Bernice admits it’s time they got the place up and running again. Inspired, Marlon agrees and offers to help. Bernice is pleased to see a spark of enthusiasm as they get to work.

Terry is determined to get back to full fitness as quickly as possible, and aims to be back at work by March. However, Dawn thinks his ideas are over ambitious and worries for his health. They share a heart-felt moment, where Dawn tells him she loves him, he tells her he is the luckiest man alive and promises not to over do it.

ITV.COM The Case Begins
Cain and Charity Charity is absolutely terrified about how she'll come across at the trial today. Meanwhile Cain is behaving very oddly, hinting to Debbie that she might need to stay with Zak and Lisa. Her barrister is trying to calm her nerves when she is called to the witness box to plea 'not guilty'. It's a lively gallery with the Dingles cheering her on, and Viv betting Pearl a tenner on the outcome before providing a running commentary into her mobile on the trial and the looks of the court officials.
Charity's trial begins The prosecution is put the case against her - Chris died from poison ordered online with her account and she signed for it, but the first witness agrees that anyone with access to Charity's computer and password could have bought the poison. Second witness Edna Birch doesn't adapt well to being cross-examined and can't stand being interrupted! She tells of Cain's boasts to her and Chris about the passion of his relationship with Charity, and Charity is shocked when her brief doesn't have any questions for Edna.
Cain is held in comtempt Next, Cain is read his police statement that Charity had done it, but then refuses to answer questions in the proper way, reiterating that Chris Tate was trying to frame her. He's sentenced to 30 days for contempt of court - a huge setback for the prosecution, and Charity thanks him later in his cell, but she's still more worried about Scott and Zoe the next day.

Meanwhile, Marlon has spent the day trying to work out his new life, ambling with Tricia's puppy between the cafe, Siobhan's and finally the Woolpack. He decides he needs to focus on work rather than Tricia and is inspired by Bernice to help get the pub up and running again, to the annoyance of current landlady Louise.
