like the present day show LAW AND ORDER, was a combination police and courtroom drama...the first half of the show spent catching the crook and the second half spent convicting him.
Sergeant Nick Anderson (played by Ben Gazzara) wants to talk to Placido Sanchez
(Rudy Bond) because Placido's son is the main suspect in a murder.
John Egan (Chuck Connors) and the defendant's lawyer (Arthur O'Connell)
discuss the defendant's chances with Placido.
