But when Sarah explained she was looking forward to meeting Danny as she feared she will die young due to her illness, Charity felt bad and tracked Danny down and he got back in contact with Sarah.

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

Sarah took a pill, despite her uncle Noah warning her not too.

Why did Danny go to prison?

Later, Danny attempted to get Sarah to sell drugs for him, claiming he needed to sell more or he’d get 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 he wanted her to deal, she came into contact with one of Danny’s friends, who told her Danny’s injury was from falling off his bike.

She then proceeded to set Danny up by putting the drugs into his jacket pocket and reported him to the police.

He went to prison. But spoilers reveal he will be back in the village causing trouble soon.
