Brief Synopsis

Television movie remake of the 1960s courtroom drama series, "The Defenders." After the death of his eldest son and his partner in the law firm of Preston and Preston, senior partner, Lawrence Preston enlists his granddaughter, M.J, a former prosecutor, and his other son Don, a law professor, to continue the work of ensuring that every individual accused of a crime is entitled to a proper defense. In this telefilm, a muckraking reporter, who is found guilty of a murder he didn't commit, is mistakenly released from prison. Seeking to flee, he is eventually confronted by two cops, one of whom becomes injured and ultimately dies. Although he is found innocent of the first murder, the reporter must stand trial for murdering the policeman.
