Arrest and Trial was an ABC crime drama that ran from September 1963 through April 1964 on Sunday nights at 8:30 PM. Arrest and Trial was divided into two forty-five parts -- in the first part (Arrest), the police would search for and arrest the criminals, and the in second part (Trial), the lawyers would defend the accused at trial, most often succeeding. Fans of today's Law & Order are familiar with that format; the first half hour of the show is typically dedicated to catching the criminal, with the second half hour dedicated to the trial itself.

Debra Jean Beasley (born August 28, 1980), better known under her former married name of Debra Lafave, is an American who formerly taught at Angelo L. Greco Middle School in Temple Terrace, Florida. In 2005, she pleaded guilty to lewd or lascivious battery. The charges stemmed from a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old male student in the summer of 2004. Lafave's plea bargain included no prison time, opting for three years of house arrest due to safety concerns, and seven years of probation.
