Kane County State's Attorney is leading an initiative for prosecutorial reform and education.  He wants to implement standardized prosecutorial practices for evidence, especially complex evidence such as DNA or cell phone tower/computer technology.  On the face, this is a good thing.  However, two main obstacles exist: 1) Some prosecutors have had the training, the knowledge, the evidence, to prove a defendant's guilt, and they have continued to prosecute innocent defendants, and 2) It is difficult to teach every prosecutor the technical, expert details of computer/science issues.  On a positive note, unless reform is discussed and implemented, our justice system will never improve.
