“Incredible” DNA Cases Seen By L.A. Prosecutor


In his second term as Los Angeles District Attorney, Steve Cooley will emphasize using DNA to bring criminals to justice, a continued crackdown on corruption, and a reform of the bail bond industry, the Los Angeles Times reports. The veteran prosecutor, 57, said he had reorganized much of his office, creating units to focus on forensic sciences, police shootings, and judicial and political integrity.

Cooley said a new California law requiring DNA testing of convicts, coupled with a new regional crime laboratory, would create the “perfect storm of opportunity” to solve cases. “If we do this right, it is going to have incredible results,” he said.
