Central Illinois Counties Vying for Cameras in Courtrooms


More cameras could be headed to courtrooms in Illinois as part of the ongoing pilot program with half a dozen counties in Central Illinois requesting participation.

 

The Associated Press reports participation requests should be submitted to the state’s Supreme Court by this fall. Sangamon, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Morgan and Scott counties hope to join 40 other counties that are already taking part in the pilot program.

 

Critics of the program say cameras in courtrooms can be disruptive and undermine a defendant’s right to a fair trial.
