David was the Crown prosecutor in Irene’s trial for the assault of Tommy O’Reilly. He opened the trial by outlining that whilst Irene’s initial reaction to Tommy was heroic, her succeeding actions were criminal. He surprised the court by calling Tommy as a witness. When Bella’s testimony descended into chaos after Colby lunged towards Tommy, David and Tommy shared a look in the knowledge that it could work in their favour. The next day, he objected to a question put forward to Bella about her belief of Tommy’s true actions, but he was overruled.
David was later in attendance as Irene’s guilty verdict was handed down, shaking Tommy’s hand at their victory.
