Kinda sux when nobody believes you (except maybe one person) when you get locked up for something you didn't do. -_-
Okay, as for what he DIDN'T do... lol:
Tael was accused of being involved in Iris' kidnapping. It's kind of a guilty by association situation. He used to be a member of the Nightcrawlers, a gang (primarily canines) that terrorizes the north side of Caige City. Iris comes from a pretty rich family so the plot is pretty simple, hold her for ransom to get at her father, Professor West.
Iris' mother barely tolerates the ruffian friends her daughter hangs out with, so of course she was the first one to point the finger. As for the bruises...errr... in his days as a gang banger, he developed pretty strained relations with the cops
Summer, Tael's childhood friend is the only one who believes him. She manages to temporarily 'bail' him out-- the only way they are going to clear his name is if the duo goes after the real culprit themselves.
