TV Series | TV-14 | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Follows a crime (usually a murder), usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points, the police investigation and the prosecution in court.
The show's format was in part inspired by Arrest and Trial (1963).
That's just a load of rehearsed crap.
On more than one occasion, a suspect has invoked his/her right to counsel and yet the officers continue to talk with them. If the suspect goes to court this will usually come back to haunt the detectives as the defendant's lawyer will throw out any statements made by their clients. However if the suspect is innocent then the police will usually get away with talking to them without a lawyer present.
Some (but not all) episodes show a disclaimer emphasizing the fictional nature of the story just prior to the closing credits. This is particularly important on those episodes that were inspired by well-known real-life legal cases.
The DVD release of the series will include footage not originally broadcast.
