Perry Mason Arrested for Practicing Law

44-year old Perry Mason of Houston was arrested for barratry, which is a third-degree felony. Reports say Mason was soliciting former jail inmates for an unnamed lawyer. The lawyer was also arrested, but released Wednesday on bond.

Perry Mason, portrayed by Raymond Burr in the classic TV series and several made-for-TV movies, was based on the equally popular novel series by creator, Erle Stanley Gardner. It ran for nine years and garnered Burr two Emmys. The made-for-TV movies continued up to 1993.
