In November, Danny brought drugs to a party Sarah was holding at Charity’s house.

Sarah took a pill, although her uncle Noah didn’t warn her too.

Why did Danny go to jail?

Danny later tried to get Sarah to sell drugs for him, claiming he had to sell more or he would be beaten up.

Danny later told Sarah he had been attacked and she agreed to help him sell drugs.

But when he took her to an area to be treated, she came into contact with one of Danny’s friends, who told her that Danny’s injury was caused by a fall from his bike.
