More Cameras In The Courtroom
(Sangamon County, IL) -- Cameras could soon be allowed in six more courtrooms in central Illinois. Officials with the 7th Judicial Circuit say they'd like to get in on the pilot program that allows courts to record trial cases. They'll be submitting an application to the state's Supreme Court sometime this fall. If approved, cameras would go up in Sangamon, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Morgan and Scott counties. Certain cases would be off-limits though, including jury selection and cases involving divorce, adoption, and child-custody battles.
