If you’ve been paying attention, there are many flaws in the American criminal justice system. One is folks waiting in jail for extremely long stretches of time waiting for trial. In a nation where everyone is “innocent until proven guilty,” this is unacceptable. In one case, Alex Daniel has been sitting in Cook County Jail for a little over a decade. He is accused of murdering his wife. He pleaded not guilty, but has never even been tried. It’s the longest standing case that’s never been brought to trial in Cook County.
