Synopsis / Plot
A man who served prison time for intent to molest a child tries to build a new life with the help of a sympathetic psychiatrist. This is the story of a 33 year old man, Jim Fuller (Stuart Whitman), released from prison after serving a three year term for intent to commit child molestation. Fuller is assisted by the prison psychiatrist in obtaining a position. He does well in this position and falls in love with the secretary of the owner of the company. A child is molested and beaten in the town where he now lives and the police pick him up for questioning. He has an alibi and is released, but a reporter who covered his former trial recognizes him. The reporter begins to follow him and reports that Fuller spent time alone with the daughter of his girl friend.
