Duplicitous businessman Henry Lord (Charles Gerrard) talks Tony Benton (Ray Hallor), the weakling brother of heroine Jean Benton (Helen Foster), into forging a check. The evidence is framed so that innocent clerk Arthur Rowland (Cornelius Keefe) is accused of the crime. When the case comes to court, it appears as though Rowland is going to be railroaded into the Big House for a long term. He is spared this fate when Lord and Benton are exposed by Lord's cast-off mistress Lucy Bishop (Alice Lake). The 1935 Circumstantial Evidence was not a remake, even though both films were produced by Chesterfield Pictures.
