WILL COUNTY, Ill. -- (WGN) -- Prosecutors nationwide are turning to an old remedy to tackle new, digital-age crimes. And the crimes are serious, like child pornography.
Law enforcement is using dogs to get the job done.
Will County is the first to use the dogs in the state of Illinois. And the county's top prosecutor says these crimes that have gone before a judge in years past have a conviction rate of 100%. That's if they have all the evidence against the offender. But getting that evidence is often the hardest part. Clever criminals are hiding small, usually discreet, electronic recording devices in the most unsuspecting places.
