Should it be "second chance" instead?

After learning about a case that was withdrawn because the plaintiff would not testify in court, he asked his daughter the next day to give him a chance and do him a favour that would change his life.
[The plaintiff is the father/ He had molested and raped his daughter on many occasions from when she was 12.]

Should it be "second chance" instead?

Thanks.

"Second chance" is a better choice.

@tanguatlay,
Or perhaps "another" since she has likely given him many chances.

So doesn't that make the daughter the plaintiff?

@cherrie,
Yes, cherries, you're right. It's my mistake. She is the plaintiff, her father the defendant.

To you, should it be "a chance" or "a second chance? Many thanks!

@tanguatlay,
I don't think there should be a second chance at all.

Or is it, "I don't think there should be a chance at all"?

@tanguatlay,
I think it should be 'another chance'.
