1. Nichols admits to Gerard and co that he has recently seen Kimble and gave him money. Surely he should have been in trouble for aiding and abetting a wanted fugitive?
2. When Gerard shows Lentz' photo to Nichols, he lies and claims not to know him when he has no good reason for doing so. It was only a matter of time before the Marshals found someone who could identify Lentz, and then they'd learn that Nichols was his boss and had therefore lied to them. It just made Gerard more suspicious of him and he also risked getting himself in hot water for lying to federal agents.

** Then there's the fact that the detectives placed the blame on Kimble because there was no forced entry, and disregarded the one armed man story as being too ludicrous, despite that in the night in question,[[spoiler: Nichols borrowed Kimble's car/keys and used the car-phone to make a call to Sykes, a one armed former cop.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention that the injured prison guard claimed to have seen Kimble in the hospital where he was taken, and the paramedics that dropped him off reported the ambulance as missing soon after.


Added DiffLines:

* By the end of the movie, Gerard is very suspicious of Nichols and Sykes, and has one of his deputies check the phone records to check if they have contacted one another. Nothing comes up, but then one of the deputies [[spoiler: informs that a call was made from Kimble's car-phone to Sykes, and when Gerard checks the files the Chicago P.D. has on Kimble's case, the call was made when Nichols was driving to the hospital benefit to return Kimble's car.]]

** Seeing how things went so sour between the CPD and the Marshals during the capture of Kimble and apprehension of Dr. Nichols, probably not

** Though Word of God apparently denies it, it's entirely possible that the movie (and the TV series it was made from) were loosely based on an actual case of a doctor named Sam Sheppard who was convicted of killing his wife but claimed an intruder did it. He didn't escape, though was later released because the Supreme Court told Ohio to either let him go or give him a new trial.

His defense attorney at the retrial, F. Lee Bailey, would serve on the "Dream Team" that won O.J. Simpson's acquittal.

*** An example of that would be the The Torgersen Case in Norway where a man (Fredrik Fasting Torgersen) was convicted of rape and murder in the 1950s. The main evidence used against him back then has since been disproven and he has tried to this day to have this case resumed, but the ones in the Resumption Commission are going out of their way to prevent that, as if they know that he'll be proven innocent and pardoned if he gets his way.
