It is very difficult to win a criminal case against the
American justice system. Going to trial
is very time consuming, and incredibly expensive. It can also be an extremely draining
experience. If a defendant goes through
all of this and is exonerated, then I believe it should be illegal for the that
person found innocent to be tried for the same crime again.
If new evidence comes to light, trials should be able to be reanalyzed. People deserve the right for all avenues to be considered, and sometimes new things are learned long after a trial ends. A reanalysis of the same evidence, though, should not take place. Only new evidence should be able to change a ruling.
