“He’s a man of good standing and it’s [his] first offence, so he’s thought about it in that respect. But in terms of his whole situation – his career, his family situation, the rest of his life – he hasn’t thought it through.”
It seems as though Nate hasn’t considered the possibility of not being able to see his child, as Jurell continued: “He has a scene with Moira and Sam, where he says that his sentence won’t be a few years.
“Because it’s his first offence and he’s pleading guilty, he genuinely thinks it’s only going to be for a few months rather than years,” but of course in soapland, things are never as easy as they seem.
Could Nate end up putting his entire future with Tracy at risk and end up serving a lengthy spell in prison?
