CBS-TV Chicago Quotes NLU’s Rich Schak on Criminals Gaming System Criminals found a way to evade electronic monitoring bracelets

The court system sentences some convicted criminals to electronic home monitoring as a way to reduce the jail population. And while the bracelets are supposed to ensure the convicted individuals are confined at home, some found a way to hack the system by unplugging the bracelets from their home and plugging them into a power source in their cars.

CBS-TV Chicago reporter Brad Edwards came to National Louis University’s Richard Schak, director of the Criminal Justice program, for expert commentary and analysis of the situation.
