Caleb supported her and Lindsay, sending them money, but the DA misunderstood that and assumed that Caleb was bribing Renee for a building permit, for which Caleb is arrested. Sandy figures out that the reason Caleb pays Renee is that she is the mother of his illegitimate child. Caleb admits to having had an affair so he will be released from prison but the news angers his daughter, Kirsten Cohen. Renee later returns, askingRyan to help her stop Caleb from adopting Lindsay as Caleb wants a paternity test and Renee isn't sure if Caleb really is Lindsay's father. The test results confirm Caleb's paternity but ultimately her daughter decides that she doesn't want Caleb to adopt her because of how he treats her, so she and Lindsay leave Newport for Chicago.
