Character Assassination

He faces 2–10 years in prison. His name: Perry Mason. The character “Perry Mason” was the protagonist of a series of novels that were published from 1933 to 1973, which were adapted to movies (spanning 1934–1993), a radio series (1943–1955), and a popular TV series (1957–1966), which typically presented Mason as a scrupulously honest and ethical lawyer.
