DAVID Platt has been determined to support and fight for his son Max Turner.
Unfortunately, the Coronation Street barber is unable to protect the lad from his harsh routine behind bars.
Max Turner is due for a court hearing next week
His father David is worried
Max was taken away by police in recent scenes of the ITV soap
The wayward teen played by Paddy Bever was cuffed and carted away in recent scenes of the ITV soap after his involvement with Griff Reynolds’ far-right group.
As viewers will remember, Max was unfortunately part of a grooming storyline during which the racist activist manipulated him and used his video editing skills to spread his racist views across Weatherfield.
Things took a turn after a bomb was planted in a Speed Daal van amid Maria Connor’s Peace Market, forcing Alya Nazir to put her life on the line.
But once she saved the day, the restaurateur was stabbed shortly after Griff’s arrest, leading to Max being charged to incitement to murder due to his videos.
In scenes due on the box next week, David (Jack P. Shepherd) confides in his mother Gail Platt (Helen Worth) that he’s worried about Max’s sentencing the following day.
David learned it may be difficult to prove Max was another one of Griff’s victims after he willingly helped the extremist gang.
Later on, David attends a meeting with Max and his barrister Kim – and things may be look up for the teen.
Kim lets them both know that Alya has failed to submit a personal victim statement, which could work in Max’s favour.
David watches Max being led to court alongside David, Spider Nugent, Daryan and Gary Windass.
Max is then handed a six-month sentence by the Judge before sharing an emotional goodbye with his adoptive father.
David hugs Max and assures him he’ll visit as often as he can, although the youngster insists that he doesn’t want any visits.
But he may regret his choice as life as a convicted criminal entails danger for Max.
In the secure training centre, a group of lads make it clear to Max that they intend to make his life hell.
Max was already bullied in school after wreaking havoc publicly.
Could he give the lads a taste of their own medicine alone?
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV.
