Winnebago County State's Attorney holds ethics conference
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Prosecutors in northern Illinois got a refresher course on ethics.
For this sixth year, Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato hosted his annual ethics conference. Lawyers heard from experts on several topics, including how to stay out of trouble when communicating through email and text.
"We hope that each prosecutor walks out of here and we've either refreshed their memory about what's important in the area of ethics," says Joe Bruscato. "Or we've provided them with new areas the think about, changes to be made, better practices to implement."
Law enforcement agencies also took part in the conference.
