*standing ovation*applause*BRAVO!!!*I do believe the Innocence Project are involved angling for bigger fish, which is why they have taken the unusual step of getting involved in a live case.
They probably have a string of cases involving people convicted corruptly by the Lake County SO/DA network and this case is their crowbar to open pandora's box.
I think its a given to assume there are sphincter muscles cramping all over town at the moment, and yes the Feds could be marching in quite soon.
If anyone gets advance notice of the Fed parade, let's all get sandwiches, some soft drinks, and set up deck chairs so we can watch and CHEER!
