Typical of Waller in Lake County

This upsets me more because it's my county, but a man has been in prison for the last 5 years for terrible crimes he apparently didn't commit.   In 2005 Jerry Hobbs called the police, because he had just found the bodies of his own daughter, and her friend.   As if that find wasn't terrible enough, the police took him as the primary suspect.   While in police custody they allegedly coerced a false confession out of him, which is not uncommon in these parts, they put words in your mouth while you are questioned, the correct answers are to either make fun of them in the form of questions, or keep your fool mouth shut!  I usually vary tactics.  Well, as I've said before, for every innocent man we put in jail, there is equal or greater than one criminal out on the streets still.   Turns out the guy who's DNA was found on the girls, is currently in a Virginia Jail after attacking 2 women.   This man has been in Jail for 5 years, and the ONLY reason Michael Waller, lake county prosecuter, stated as to why they didn't continue was:

Prosecutors say DNA from the crime scene matches another man. That man used to live in Zion but is now in custody in Virginia after being charged in two attacks on women there.
Lake County State's Atty. Michael Waller, flanked by prosecutors and members of the Lake County major crimes task force, said the charges were dropped because "I believe at this point, we can't prove the case without reasonable doubt."

 So listen up if you live in Virgina and know the people who were attacked by the REAL criminal... you have a GREAT case against Lake County Illinois, because they stopped looking for a criminal after they weaseled a false confession out of Jerry Hobbs.   Stop here for your money... and if you can.... buy my house, I need to get outta here!
