Description

After a pregnant college student was sexually assaulted on Chicago's south side, NBC5 Investigates began looking into the background of the suspect, and discovered he was supposed to be on juvenile electronic monitoring for a past arrest. Over the next several days, Phil Rogers continued to uncover serious flaws in Cook County's system for monitoring juvenile offenders. By the end of the week - and a direct result of Rogers' week-long reporting - the county completely reformed its system to - finally -- provide true 24-hour monitoring for juvenile offenders.
