regarding Paul Andrews' comment (above): Mr. Andrews presents a well-written case for his qualitative judgment of "Guilty till Proved Innoncent," and his points are well taken. However, there is one point not made that I believe must be made in order to fully review this episode and that is about the quality of actor Eugene Roche's work as St. Johns, the hyper-aggressive federal prosecutor who convenes the grand jury. Roche will be more than familiar to anyone who's logged more than 8 hours watching film and TV offerings from the 2nd half of the 20th century. Most famously, Roche played the ill-fated voice of hope, reason and protection in the film version of Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse Five," in 1972. He's an actor well worth familiarizing yourself with and in this episode, his work is first-rate. One other point? Though it's true this episode has little to do with "Quincy," the thesis posited (that the Grand Jury system can be perverted into an Anti-American persecution chamber)is valid and terrifying.
