I usually understand when the courts overturn something or rule out evidence but this seems a reach to me.
DNA matches but case overturned! At least he's being kept in jail until retrial.

The prosecutors simply got caught violating the procedural rules. While it happens all the time, this particular prosecutor was not smart enough to cover her bases before going forward.

We had a local case something like that except the perp was a female teacher and 2 young girls were involved.

Here again there was carelessness in interviewing the girls. It seemed to me the prosecutor was overzealous and overconfident. Because of that the defendant was ruled innocent. Now she is suing the system for $25,000,000.00 !! frown frown

The procedure is there for a reason. The thing is, none of those reasons occured here. There is no hint of fabication or dishonesty on the part of anyone.
Judgment should fall on the side of the prosecutor in this case.
