The previous poster Eric is entirely correct about the political slant of this program, not surprising with figures like Earnest Kinoy--at one time an actual member of the Communist Party--and Howard da Silva associated with it. But recall that in that pre-Reagan era many series had a distinctly liberal tendency--like "The Defenders" and yes, even a western like "Have Gun--Will Travel".
He is mistaken about the role of the prosecuting attorney, however. Prosecutor and defense counsel are NOT mere mirror images, on opposite sides of the case. The job of the prosecution, with the awesome power of the state behind it, is to do justice, not just win a conviction. Accordingly, public prosecutors are subject to special rules which don't apply to other lawyers. If the prosecuting attorney is genuinely unable to tell, based on the legally admissible evidence, whether an accused committed a crime or whether any crime was committed, it is duty bound to discontinue prosecution.
A confession obtained by duress is not admissible as evidence. If that is the prosecution's whole case, then there is no case.
