And—just like that, Gentle Reader™, they were gone.

“You gonna represent us or not?”

“That’s my job, Mr. Johnson, isn’t it?” Farkleberry (a cousin of the Medlar Farkleberry family), replied, “And I’m damn good at what I do as a public defender.”

“That’s for sure,” Mac added, with a wicked grin, “He’s helped some of most hard-cases we’ve apprehended get a lighter sentence, or no sentence at all.”

“It’s my job, Mac.”

“And you do it well—no complaints here.”

“When is Judge Hanson going to arraign these folks?”

“Later today,” Boomer replied, “At 1430 hours.”

“May I have some time with these folks?”

“Absolutely,” Mac replied, “Right now—we’ll leave while you meet with them.”

“Thanks, Mac.

Season 18, Adventure 3, Joey Keller, Episode 13—Scene 1… Inside the Posse™ HQ Jail… James Farkleberry interviewed his new clients.

After wasting his time looking for anything he could argue before any judge—and getting nothing but lies from the three, he gave-up, “All I can do is argue for a reduced sentence.”

“All I can do is argue for a reduced sentence.”

“What do you mean?” Reed Johnson asked, “We wasn’t doing nothing wrong.”

“You weren’t?” Farkleberry asked in reply, “You drew-down on three US Marshals—that’s a federal offence.”

“You don’t understand,” Reed replied, “The boss don’t take it good if we don’t get what he says to do done.”

“Yes,” Lola Masters added, “I seen him kill as punishment or failure to do what he says to do.”

“You three are looking to get time in a federal prison,” Farkleberry explained, “The only thing we can hope for is shorter sentence if you tell the Marshal who you’re working for.”

Episode 13—Scene 2… Juco met with Keller in Keller’s Cabin… “You MUST leave Joey—and take your best men with you!”

“WHY?”

“WHY?”

“Because three of your gang are ratting-you out,” Juco answered.

“Where, exactly?” Keller asked.

“Not ‘where,’ but where & when,” Juco replied.

“Where and when?”

“Deadwood, Dakota Territory, in 1873.”

“You can do that?”

“Of course, I can.”

“And my gang?” Keller asked.

“They’re about to be arrested, and you’re next.”

“I see I have no choice—let’s go!”

(And—just like that, Gentle Reader™, they were gone.)
