Television / Series / Crime
The cornerstone of American jurisprudence is that people charged with a crime by the state have the presumption of innocence, and are considered innocent by society at large, until they are proven guilty in a court of law. Every week in the late 1950's Lock Up revealed for American television viewers an account of the unjustly accused. The cases are taken from the files and case histories of renowned Philadelphia defense attorney Herbert L. Maris.
