Innocent Until Proven Guilty

You may not be aware, but Mexico has undergone many changes in terms of criminal law, human rights, and the change from a bench trial system with legal defense to oral trials with juries over the last 10 years.

Today, the Mexican government announced sweeping changes to the legal system.  The number one and most important change is "innocent until proven guilty".   

I need to research more but this will change the negative face that many foreigners have of Mexico.  Let's see what happens.  I know there will be "those of little faith" but I truly believe change has come to Mexico based on the last 10 years.
