Description by OLDIES.com:
A popular TV series in the late 1950's, "Lock Up" dramatizes how innocent citizens can be accused and punished for serious crimes, and that a thorough investigation - without prejudice, is the unalienable right of every citizen. The inspiration for these weekly stories(78 episodes from 1959 through 1961), came from the personal files and case histories of prominent, Philadelphia lawyer, Herbert L. Maris, a man who strongly believed in the major canon of American jurisprudence: That we are all presumed innocent until proven guilty.Starring MacDonald Carey as Herbert L. Maris, Esq., each half hour episode portrays the attorney as a man "who has devoted his life to saving the innocent."
Abandoned Mine: Maris and Lt. Weston head west to investigate a deadly mine collapse.
Beau and Arrow Case: Bad-tempered and mentally ill, Tom Chambers accuses Maris of murder.
Leading Young Citizen: Out of work and down on his luck, Joe Tanner gets pinched by Lt. Weston for a crime he did not commit.
Murder is a Gamble: A husband is charged with shooting his shrewish wife. It seems to be an open and shut case for Lt. Weston - until Maris gets involved.
