Tom is a black man that got accused of raping a white girl in Maycomb Alabama. This town is suffering through hard times so the morales are already down. Some consequences that occur not only affect Atticus but also affect his children. They get bullied at school for their father defending a black man. Atticus takes Tom on as a client because he believes he is innocent. Mayella Ewell and her father blamed Tom for raping Mayella when in fact they were lying so her father said that he caught him doing it.
After the trial, Atticus’s kids get attacked by Bob Ewell and Boo Radley kills Bob and then brings them back to their house. The sheriff knows Boo Radley killed Bob but says that Bob tripped and fell on his own knife. A consequence of Bob Ewell is how karma came back around and took his life.
Atticus took on a job that he knew wasn’t going to get him anywhere because Tom is a black man and during the time Maycomb Alabama was a prejudice town.
