Aunt Bee is called for jury duty and despite her misgivings, goes to the courthouse to see if she will be called. She finds herself on a jury for the trial of Marvin Jenkins who is accused of breaking and entering and stealing a TV from a local store. Jenkins story is that he brought a TV to the store for repairs and found the back door open. When the jury retires to consider the verdict, the other 11 jurors - all men - vote to find him guilty and Aunt Bee is the only hold out. She simply isn't sure and is not convinced that Marvin is guilty. After several days, they finally declare themselves a hung jury, with a good deal of frustration from several quarters being directed at Aunt Bee. Andy however manages to solve the case in a few minutes.
