Emmerdale spoilers: Maya trial AFTERMATH! Will Jacob forgive David?

Maya trial verdict is finally given as she awaits in the dock in Emmerdale

After Maya's trial, David and Jacob are left to deal with the consequences

Following the nail-biting court case, which saw teacher Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) in the dock for her sex crimes against Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant), the fallout begins.

David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) has already had a steep hill to climb with Jacob since he discovered his former live-in girlfriend Maya had been grooming and abusing his teenage son under his very nose. With Jacob having decided the break up of his "relationship" with Maya was all David's fault, how will the schoolboy react to his dad now the verdict has been given? Can the fractured family make up and move on?

At Home Farm, Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) is on red alert as he suspects his scheming mum Kim is up to no good. Again.

This is the second of tonight's episodes.
