Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 151
“Take your time.” Rachel’s mind was filled with David’s face. She really did not have the patience to listen to their explanation.
Eddie looked at Rachel’s back and then at Don. “You really got me into trouble!”
It was a pity that the double bonus that he had been longing for had turned into dust.
Don sneered. “I should be the one saying that!”
As the two of them were talking, a commotion broke out outside.
Eddie and Don looked at each other and rushed out tacitly.
They saw a group of reporters gathered at the entrance of the police station.
At this moment, they were aiming their cameras at Rachel.
Their expressions suddenly changed, and confusion appeared in their eyes. “Why are the reporters here?!”
Don was also puzzled.
This case was still to be investigated. If it was really related to the smuggling case three years ago, the appearance of the reporters would only alert the enemy.
He rushed out quickly, followed by Eddie, whose mind was filled with thoughts of a promotion and a raise.
However, their appearance didn’t have any effect. Instead, it made the reporters even crazier.
“May I ask if this suspected sale of cultural relics is related to the smuggling case three years ago?”
“Since the case is still under investigation, why is the suspect free to move around?” “According to an insider, is it true that there’s a power trade in your police department?” Don had never been good at dealing with interpersonal relationships, let alone feigning civility with reporters.
Hearing the reporters making things difficult for him, his face suddenly turned sullen and he shouted coldly, “Stop talking nonsense here! Otherwise, I’ll treat you to tea at the police station!”
As soon as he said this, the reporters instantly found a new breakthrough. “Is this a sign of a guilty conscience?”
“As a police officer, you threatened us. We’re going to report you.”
While Don was speechless, Rachel suddenly said, “Where’s the evidence?”
She stood in the crowd, but she did not panic at all. Instead, she was calm and composed in the face of danger. A powerful aura engulfed her, shrouded in an unknown coldness that made people shudder.
Everyone was stunned for a moment before someone reacted. “The video of your illegal transaction has already become a trending topic. Why are you still being so stubborn?!”
“There are witnesses and evidence, yet you’re still not confessing?!”
“Of course, she can be self–righteous if she has someone powerful to protect her. Otherwise, how can she stand here as if nothing has happened?”
Rachel’s gaze swept over nonchalantly. The depths of her almond–shaped eyes were filled with coldness, and her red lips curled into a faint smile. “You guys convicted me with just a video. Do you really think you’re godly detectives who can crack cases?”
Her words were filled with obvious mockery.
“It’s true that we’re not great detectives, but you can’t deny it in the face of concrete evidence!” The reporter retorted with a hint of provocation in his eyes.
Rachel’s lips curled up casually. “Did you see it with your own eyes?”
The reporter looked at Rachel aggressively. “There’s no smoke without fire. If you’re really innocent and you have nothing to do with this case, why are you here?”
Rachel chuckled. “You seem to have a point.”
In the ears of everyone, these words were equivalent to admitting to her crime.
Just as everyone thought that they had first–hand information and began to plan for tomorrow’s headlines, they heard Rachel suddenly say, “Officer Cole, how many years will you be sentenced to for defamation?”
“Ah?” Don, who was suddenly called out, was stunned.
When he met Rachel’s cold gaze, he immediately came back to his senses and said with a serious expression, “You will be sentenced to not more than three years of fixed–term imprisonment, criminal detention, control, and deprivation of political rights.”
As soon as he said this, the reporter’s expression changed.
Is this woman crazy?
