Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed on location in New York, the 60-minute TV drama Guilty or Not Guilty was cowritten by Evan "Blackboard Jungle" Hunter. Robert Ryan stars as Andrew Dixon, a New York assistant DA. Disgusted by the crime rate and the court's revolving door policy regarding street criminals, Dixon organizes a citizen's protection committee in his own neighborhood. Guilty or Not Guilty was designed as the pilot for a potential series starring Robert Ryan. It was originally telecast as the June 1, 1966 installment of Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre.
