Mexico Justice Breakdown

Mexico Justice Breakdown

FILE - In this July 12, 2008 file photo, a gavel rests on the table of a model court room at Mexico's National Institute of Penal Sciences in Mexico City. The model courtroom has been used by students to prepare for the new legal system that will replace its closed proceedings with public oral trials in which suspects are presumed innocent, legal authorities can be held more accountable and equal justice is promised to all. Yet the decision of three Chihuahua state judges, under the new open oral trial system, to absolve the main suspect in the 2008 murder of a 16-year-old girl has put the country's U.S.-backed judicial reform on trial.
