Why does Winnie feel guilty about helping with the jail break? Why does she decide to help anyway?

Winnie's upbringing made her feel that she would be breaking the law. It would also affect her family's reputation. She had already put her family through so much worry and anguish that she didn't want to give them more pain. But, if it hadn't been for her, Mae Tuck would not be in jail for murdering the man in the yellow suit. Because she cared for the Tucks, she needed to help them out of this situation. They had saved her life, and now it was time to return the favor.
